Check out the popular local “power spot”, The Blue Cave, in a convenient and cheap 1-hour package! A quick trek through sugarcane fields brings us to the tour starting point as we set off for the Blue Cave!First to greet us is the beautiful blue ocean and a white sandy beach! Listen to the waves break against the reef and shore and breathe in the calming smell of the sea air. You’ll find many sea shells, hermit crabs, and even star sand♪No time to waste though, so off we go to the Blue Cave! Rays of light bend and weave into the cave, creating a spiritual and unique healing quality in the calm cave waters. An expression of calming beauty that only nature can create. As we set foot inside the cave, discover the ancient and timeless qualities of the cave created under nature′s powerful influence.After some quick spelunking, we head out into the beautiful ocean for snorkeling♪ You’ll surely be in awe as you swim through the sparkling blue water alongside colorful tropical fish and over the dynamic underwater landscape. Both first time as well as experienced snorkelers will be sure to have an amazing experience. We want everyone who visits Ishigaki Island to be able to have a fulfilling local experience; local food and local people in the native “colors” of the island. As such, our tiny company was started and is run by a native Ishigaki islander.

  • Be able to quickly visit the Blue Cave in your spare time, we don`t use a boat so there is no need to worry about sea sickness
  • We set out from the beach, so the elderly and small children can participate safely at their own pace.
  • No need to be super fit for a 1 hour tour!
  • Even if you`ve packed your vacation schedule full of activities, you can still check out the Blue Cave, coral reef and amazing tropical fish at your convenience and to your satisfaction!

Precautionary Notes
  • Tours are subject to sudden course changes or cancellation due to adverse weather or ocean conditions.
  • Safety comes first, and although unlikely, please be aware that we may have to refuse service to children under the age of 5 or those who are in danger due to lack of swimming experience.
  • We require a supervising parent or guardian for all children middle school age or younger (1-15 years old).
Beginners Welcome

Lifejackets are provided and required for all participants, so novice swimmers can also participate. Tour staff are happy to pull beginners along with a safety rope and board. A quick snorkeling lesson is included in the tour.

Safety Considerations

The Blue Cave is easily accessible by walking and snorkeling. There are no particularly dangerous areas in the areas around the Blue Cave. However, this is an unaltered natural area with deep underwater caverns and can also be subject to rip currents. As such, we recommend protecting yourself by participating in a tour that knows the local areas and ocean conditions. Our shop is very familiar with the Blue Cave and the surrounding ocean, so tour participants can feel safe and at ease.

  1. All tours are led by a licensed and qualified guide
  2. Guide-Participant ratio; For snorkeling, we include a trained staff member for every 8 tour participants to ensure safety.
  3. Minimum standard required equipment. Standard equipment set per participant includes snorkel and mask, snorkeling fins, marine shoes and life jacket.
  4. Considerations for marine ecosystems (No collecting of plants or animals. Please refrain from interacting with coral or other plants and animals as much as possible. If you do pick up or touch a plant or animal for observation, please promptly put it back in the place where you found it).
  5. Considerations for local ecosystems (Please be considerate of locals who live in the Yonehara area and act appropriately and with awareness of local and traditional culture).

We constantly update and train our staff for awareness, technique and quality of service. We ensure full preparedness in management of customer safety and emergency rescue.
