What you'll do

blue cave snorkel .
I use good updated equipment, including all safety equipment. The blue cave snorkel is a unique marine spot where we can closely observe fish and the reef. Also, we will go inside a beautiful reflecting blue water cave without needing to go underwater. This unique and friendly snorkeling experience will be fun for the whole family. If you don't know how to swim, it is OK because I can teach you while you hold a floatation device. You will be in good hands for safety and fun.
Other things to note
To Go snorkel You will need to be comfortable in the water. I will guide you, so you don't need to be a strong swimmer or be afraid of the ocean. We will snorkel close to the beach

Hi, there. I am 33 years old, and I started surfing and kitesurfing at the age of 16. I am originally Italian, but I followed my dream and my the love of the waves, and moved to Okinawa. It's a magical place. I am a full-time guide at a surfing and IKO kitesurfing school. I have a real passion for anything to do with water sports—surfing, kitesurfing, snorkeling, and SUP are my devotion and part of my daily life duties.

Where you'll be

We'll meet at snorkel spot or my shop and travel to the blue cave. The location is great for beginners and advanced snorkelers. It is a beautiful and safe spot with parking, shower, and toilet. The various kinds of fish make this a remarkable experience.

Experience with Francesco is good. Unfortunately the blue cave is close so we went snorkeling in difference place which is near blue cave area. He took us to the reef area that not crowded and it is great and beautiful also.

Not the best experience. Fist off, my mom needed more assistance that what was given. She was continually left alone even though we had communicated she is not a confident swimmer. Our host kept on leaving us, swimming 20-30 feet away and kept diving down to fish for the sea life nearby. Some of the equipment was worn and old and both my mom and I had pieces missing or bitten off from our mouth pieces. We ended up changing locations due to weather, which was fine, but the location we went to was also not a great spot to snorkel in due to the weather. As beginner snorkelers he took us to very uncalm waters where the waves kept rolling up and down--rising high and then dropping low. This made both my mom and I so seasick we couldn't finish the experience. We had signed up for the blue cave originally which would have been calmer waters, so we were surprised when the new location had such uncalm waters. The communication beforehand was absolutely terrible. I tried very hard to be clear and specific but it was very hard to get an answer from him or a prompt response. At one point I think he forgot we had a reservation with him and he randomly tried to changing the meeting time and day. I kept on trying to ask him why the meeting time was changing (was it the weather?) and he wouldn't reply. On the day of he still was communicating very poorly to me, it was only when I finally called him on his phone did I start getting answers. If you choose to do this experience I would recommend calling him if you need to communicate at all. Also be very clear about what it is you need and want if your location gets moved due to weather. But honestly, I really wouldn't recommend this experience. Go with an established company or just rent your own gear.

Unfortunately, the blue cave was closed so we didn't see it, for me it was the main attraction. If you didn't do the snorkeling before, this experience can be interesting but it wasn't my case.

Snorkeling with Francesco was really awesome. He had all the equipment you could need and was really knowledgeable. The time flew by and we ended up snorkeling for almost 3 hours. We watched him catch 2 octopus which we ate some of raw in the beach. It was awesome!

Francesco is a great instructor ! He was able to work out alternative snorkel site, due to the closure of blue cave (bad weather). He took great pains to ensure we would have a great experience; my 5-year kid was able to come along with floatation device. And he speaks good English! I would recommend him
