Every year, humpback whales take a long journey from the cold North Pole to the warm seas around the Kerama Islands to give birth and care for their young. Watch the dynamic behavior of the whales as they swim by the boat and communicate by tail slapping and breaching. Book early to make sure you don't miss this splendid natural Okinawan spectacle.
