Ishigaki Diving

Only for certified divers.

Diving in Ishigaki is possible all year round with different seasons offering a variety of marine creatures. The most famous are, of course, the mantas who are regular customers at the cleaning stations of Kabira. Ishigaki island has one of the highest manta encounter rates in the world, so if you ever wanted to see a manta ray you are in luck! Be aware that the manta sites (Manta Scramble and Manta City) are usually only divable in summertime/ early autumn.

Visiting wintertime?
Do not worry, Ishigaki has a lot more to offer than just mantas! We have some spectacular swim-throughs and lively coral reefs full of creatures that will excite both experienced and new divers. Why not ask your guide what is in season right now?
Let us know if you have a crush on tiny crabs, nudibranchs or any other small critters and we will do our very best to find them for you! If you are a beginner or maybe you just like to cruise along, enjoying the scenery of the underwater world, we will do our best to make your dive relaxed and enjoyable. We at Viking Scuba Kabira are there for all our guests!

Small dive groups to make your diving day relaxed with a personal touch

Our boat leaves from Kabira bay* a white sandy beach that is just around the corner from one of the most famous sightseeing spots of Ishigaki. We have free pick-up service for all our customers staying in Ishigaki City and Kabira area. Once we get to the beach, the dive sites are only 10-15 min. away! We decide our daily dive sites in the morning with your comfort and safety in mind, please let us know if you have any special request.
