Mikomoto Island

There are a number of diving spots around Kamikimoto Island, an uninhabited island off the coast of Shimoda. It is a 20-minute boat ride from the harbor to the dive site. It is a popular spot for hammerhead sharks to appear from summer to autumn when the Kuroshio Current approaches the Izu Peninsula.

You can see tons of hammerheads, white pointer sharks, and catsharks. The Kuroshio Current can also attract sunfish, sailfish, whale sharks, manta rays, and long-nosed rays.
