    When is the best time to Okinawa?

    There is direct flight from Seoul to Naha, Okinawa. Occasionally I may get cheap ticket at last minute sale.

    When is the best time for diving around Okinawa? Marine variety and water temp. I can stay just 3 or 4 days with the ticket so I can not go far.

    Also I've heard that whaleshark diving is possible in Okinawa. Is it worth diving in the big net? I have no encounter with whaleshark and that's why I'm interested but I may feel sad when I see the whaleshark caged.

    Best time.

    Usually from April to October is usually really good. Sometimes Nov. and Dec. you can get real lucky.


    This year though its been off the charts wierd. I've lived here for 24 years and being half Okinawan I've never seen rain like I did during some of the summer months. Now, as I'm writing this we are probaly getting 25kts. or more North to Northeast winds, sea condition east/west warning, which is bad for Okinawa because it affects both sides of the island. Only certain areas you'll be able to get into but, not really good diving.

    But, if you're interested on coming down to Okinawa definetly during the months mentioned above, and if you are thinking about coming down during Nov. and Dec. bring your 5mm wetsuit. If you don't have one you can always rent one.

    Thank you Okidiver. I could make it coming March. Is it OK with 3mm fullsuit? And if time permits I want to visit Ishigaki to see Mantas. Is it possible to meet them March?
