Evaluation

*Average:    3.36
Similar to Oahu diving: stony/sandy bottom, 20~40' viz, moderate-to-poor fish life. Diveable year-round for the hardiest (dumbest) divers; otherwise, August is the only month to truly enjoy it in 3mm wetsuit or less. Unparalleled facilities, but burdened by outrageously excessive controls by management and absurdly high rent costs of air tanks. Picturesque temperate-zone picnic area above water, with beachside camping. It's passable diving if you're stuck on Japan's mainland; otherwise, head to Palau, Saipan, Maldives, Okinawa....
