- Yonaguni ISLAND -
Season: January to March
- About the dive site:
If you dream about diving with huge schools of scalloped hammerhead sharks, this is one of the few places in the world where you can do that! The intense adrenaline you will experience when you suddenly see more than 100 hammerhead sharks is indescribable! Yonaguni is also home to the famous underwater ruins. There is still much debate over whether the ruins are natural or man-made, but either way it’s still a sight to see and an incredible experience!
- What kind of life you can find:
We will have chances to see: Whale Shark, Hammerhead Shark, Marlin, Turtle, Devil Ray (Manta), Tuna, Napoleon, Titan Triggerfish, Moray, Lionfish, and more.
- The diving in Yonaguni is very challenging, so the diver must:
- Be at a minimum an Advanced Diver with experience deep diving.
- Have a minimum of 50 dives logged.
- Not have problems equalizing.
- Be in perfect health condition (check health form if needed).
- Be able to control his or her buoyancy without assistance.
