Whale Watching for Winter Entertainment

Whale Watching
Okinawa offers a lot to explore and experience that you cannot in big cities.
Those experiences will enrich your life, and that is only special for the one who experiences.

However, the first step is always hard to step in…

– Exercising Sports and Marine Activities look interesting, but lot to prepare.
– Don’t know where to get information on such thing.
– Any activities available in winter time?

Just for you, for the one who thinks like those above, we recommend you whale watching little tours!

In Chatan, one of the most favored condominium URTORE Mihama, or Bears Court Mihama Sunset are located right in front of Hamagawa seaport, where some whale watching tours are available. Just a few steps away from your home!

Either our staying guests or other customers also, please try for this opportunity!

Let’s step into new activities, with ease!

Go seek the ocean entertainment with a feel of liberation!
