    I'll be going down to Okinawa (staying in Chatan) for 5 days in early April. I've done some diving at the Sunabe seawall before, and was wondering if any people regularly dive there? Is it possible to just rent some tanks and go in? Seems a shame to pay like 8000 yen for a buddy with a local shop...

    If anyone wants to buddy up and do some diving let me know!

    I just got back. There are several Facebook groups for diving in Okinawa, some of those are a good way to find buddies. You can just rent and go, unless you want a boat dive like the Emmons or?

    Great, that's useful, thanks! How was the diving? And how about the ocean temp?

    I am in Taiwan and Okinawa may open up to Taiwan for some tourism. I would love to come do some diving there with a dive buddy

    I guess we will all hear any news on a travel bubble between Japan and Taiwan.
