Consideration Point

  • Store manager's attention to logging space.

    The interior of the store using natural wood is the Manager's inspiration.
    To enrich the trip, we also have original T-shirts, stickers, and skin care items to sell.
    We really dedicated time to design the interior. Please, don't forget to look around♪

  • Thoroughly well cared equipment

    The equipment used to dive in the sea of Okinawa is exposed to harsh conditions. How many good memories would be halved if equipment in bad conditions was put in use?
    At Gopher Diving, we provide the latest equipment in a wide variety of sizes to fit your body, not to mention the overhaul once a year and daily Inspections.
    Diving equipment is also available for sale at a great price (order sale). Please feel free to contact us.

  • Access convenience

    Naha, the Ginowan Marina where our boat is moored, Onna Village area (very popular for both beach and boat dives) are all located from a relative short distance of Gopher Diving.
    American Village loved by local customers and tourists.
    Shopping, gourmet and entertainment all together within a short walk distance!
    If you stay at La'Gent Hotel Okinawa where we are located, early morning dives will also depart as soon as you reach the front-desk!
    Limousine bus from Naha airport stops at the front of La'Gent Hotel OKINAWA so even without a rental car we are easy to access ♪
    Providing a dormitory room type, it fits even for one person trip. After diving, slowly walking along the coast while watching the sunset and feeling the sea breeze of Okinawa is a priceless experience!
