Come experience the wide variety of diving in Japan
The fascinating country of Japan offers a colder climate in the north and a warmer, milder climate in the south. Thanks to this variation, weather and water temperature can vary significantly from region to region. As a result, each area has its own unique ecosystem, offering a wide variety of scuba dives, from ice diving in Hokkaido to tropical diving in Okinawa. You can also explore fantastic freshwater environments like lakes and rivers filled with caves and shipwrecks. Japan is famous for its four distinct seasons on land, and divers can also experience these seasons underwater.
Discover the world’s most fascinating aquatic life
Aquatic life under our oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams is amazing! From microscopic zooplankton to the largest animal on earth, the blue whale, underwater life comes in all possible shapes and sizes. With 71% of the earth being covered with water, it is no wonder we are so fascinated with what lies beneath the surface. In fact, scientists estimate that there are nearly 1 million different species of aquatic animals. Freshwater ecosystems are home mainly to fish, invertebrates, and reptiles, whereas the ocean contains a wide array of marine life including fish, mollusks, crustaceans, reptiles, sharks, and marine mammals like whales, dolphins, seals, and manatees.
