Whale Watching with Marine House Seasir

Posted In: okinawa

Whale Watching season goes on during the last months of winter in Okinawa. The humpback whales spend much of their year in the Alaskan coasts and they migrate 5,100 kilometers south towards the Kerama Islands, just 40 kilometers west of Naha. The warmth of the Okinawan waters prove ideal breeding ground for the whales.

We booked a tour online with Marine House Seasir, an Okinawan company. They even had an english guide tell us all about the whales and what to expect during our tour. Sadly, we sat in the front of the boat and after a while i started feeling seasick (something that has never happened before). So, i spent all of our time out at sea sitting in the back, with my head out of the boat. It sucked soo much and i wish we would’ve sat down in the back from the beginning. Apparently our tour wasn’t so lucky because we didn’t get to see much, just a couple of blows and tails. It felt like we wasted our money, as i spent the whole tour throwing up, but nonetheless it was an experience, lol.

^^ but first let me take a selfie ^^

^^ Sadly this picture was taken by a friend, we didn’t get to see much of the whales 🙁 ^^
