My husband and I did a refreshers fun dive with instructor Joe. He was very friendly and put us at ease. He went through the skills thoroughly and was very approachable when we had any questions. We highly recommend Penguin Divers!

We had an unforgettable day with Joe exploring the waters around northern Miyakojima. Penguin Divers is highly recommendable and very good value for money. We wish to do this again on our next trip to this unique island.
