We highly recommend you wear disposable soft lenses. It rarely happens but sometimes you can lose lenses during sea activity. So we don’t recommend you to wear hard lenses for sea activity.
Can I take a shower after the activity?
You can only take a fresh water shower without shampoo or body shampoo. The water usually goes to the ocean right away, so you cannot use any cleanser. In case of Kerama diving, there is a simple shower facility on boat. In case of Manza and Itoman area, there is a simple shower facility at port. In case of the dive site without any shower facility, we bring fresh water for taking a shower.

– Kerama diving : After departure, check the sea condition and choose the diving points on the activity day.
