Minna & Sesoko ISLANDS
- About the dive sites:
Two amazing islands for diving in Okinawa, each completely different from the other. At Minna Island you can find beautiful hard corals that will remind you of Finding Nemo! You can see lots of reef fish, such as anemone fish, surgeon fish, clown trigger fish, garden eels, and, at deeper depths, you can even find numerous goatfishes and cleaning stations! The corals close to the coast at Sesoko Island are laid out in interesting formations, tunnels, and caves which we can pass through as we observe the sunlight hitting the water. It’s a gorgeous dive with lots of marine life.
