We took a 1-day snorkeling tour to Kerama Islands. Coral and fish were sparse compared to Great Barrier Reef, Maldives, Thailand, and Indonesia. Not bad, but if you've snorkeled at world class sites you won't be impressed.

Very clear waters with abundant sea life and not too far from Naha. Tokashiki is only 30 min by speed boat and Zamami - 1 hour by speed boat. Better options for staying and eating on Zamami though. Tokashiki is bigger.

Perfect diving spot. Spent a day diving here but would've loved to have stayed a few days camping or in a small hotel and lounging on the beaches. Worth a visit or 20 visits!

We regularly ride our jetskis out the the islands and snorkel off of them. We have seen sharks, turtles and rays while snorkeling!
