Only Certified divers

Fun dive with us on Ishigaki’s beautiful reefs! At Viking Scuba Kabira, you can relax and enjoy your dives in a small group. All our guides are PADI professionals who will have your safety (and fun!) in mind when planning the dives. Whether you are an enthusiastic photographer or just want to float over the scenic reefs, we got many sites for both beginners and experienced divers.

Diving in Ishigaki is beautiful all year round and there’s always something exciting to see. Besides the lively coral reefs, there is a turtle point, landscape sites with swim-throughs and in season we go out to the famous Manta points (Manta Scramble and Manta City). Manta season is generally from around May to beginning of October with a peak in September/ beginning of October. If you are lucky and the sea conditions are good we do go out there in the other months too♪
Other seasonal guests on the reefs are the giant cuttlefish who mates around March/April.

Dive sites are decided by the captain in the morning. Do let us know if you have a crush on tiny crabs, love or hate sea snakes, or want to take a photo with one of the friendly turtles. Hope to see you soon!
