    This was my second time snorkeling, and the guide gave us a great explanation of how all the gear worked and should be worn, so I am much more comfortable in the water now. The wetsuits were buoyant, which was great. We got to see a turtle, which was definitely the highlight. The reefs in general were cool too. The guide took lots of photos of the group in the water and sent them to us later.

    Afterwards, we got to have a shower and tea at his shop. That was such a kind service and really warmed me up after being in the water.

    I recommend this place! It is easy to book and they are very responsive.

    Honestly the day I spent kayaking and snorkeling was one the best days of my life. I spent the morning kayaking along the river in Miyanoura, taking in the stunning surroundings. It was so relaxing and serene, it felt like myself and Kei, my guide, were the only people in the world. Kei provided a small jar for me to fill with sand and rocks to remind me of my time on Yakushima and it is something I will always treasure. After lunch at a lovely little cafe we went snorkeling at Isso Beach, which is beautiful. I had never been snorkeling before and now i've managed to set the bar very high! It was amazing watching all the sea life around me and I was very lucky and saw 3 sea turtles!
    I want to thank Kei so much, he is a really excellent guide! I really enjoyed talking to him all day :)

    An unforgettable snorkelling tour from Tatsunoko, nice and caring coaching, warm water was prepared after the snorkelling in the cold wether, it was so great! Tatsunoko take care you everything. It is no a problem if you don't know swimming and no diving experience. So lucky that we meet two sea turtles in the tour~ We can only s peak simple english but no any problem in communication! Just come with swimming suit, they got everything prepared! Recommended!

    We had one-on-one instructors in the water with us. Both carried etch-a-sketches to share underwater messages with us. They communicated well. It was a shore dive, which alleviated anxiety since we hadn’t dove in a few years. Saw two sea turtles! Great experience.

    I had great vacation in Yakushima (4 days, 03 nights). I spent 02 days for trekking in forest. It was really really amazing. I would like to thank YNAC so much. I had wonderful real lessons about nature, forest in Yakushima.

    I would like highly recommend you join day tours of YNAC.
    I am sure you I will have unforgettable time like me.
