What You Can Expect:

While many of the dive shops in Okinawa do not own their own dive boats and share big dive boats with other shops, we are proud to have our own. ‘Swift’ is the name of our dive cruiser, specifically designed for divers’ comfortable ride and convenience. When you dive, you can see how the bottom of Swift is shaped, applying traditional Japanese shipbuilders’ knowledge and experience about boats tough with waves. It is a nice boat.

What To Expect Onboard:

Comfortable big space on the deck. For your comfortable ride to the Kerama Island, Swift has extraordinarily huge space on the deck, compared to other dive boats in Okinawa. We have a big bench in the middle of the deck where you can set up your gear and put on it very easily while sitting. Not only the back of the boat, we have two entry doors on the each side of the boat, where you do not need to wait in the line to get in the water! Toilet, Semi dry room, and Showers. Swift’s toilet has a huge cesspit tank so that we do not flush dirty water in the beautiful crystal clear water in our dive sites. We can carry 1,000 litters of water so you can use either cold or warm shower after dives. Emergency O2 kit and others. Unfortunately, it is not always the case in Okinawa that every diving service carries Oxygen bottles as a first aid for divers, while Oxygen is a necessary first aid for Scuba diving related injuries such as embolism and Decompression sickness. We have two big 9 litter Oxygen tanks (150 bar) on our boat, which lasts 2 hours. (when free flowing 15 litters per minute continuously) enough for the ride back to the Okinawa Main Island and get on an ambulance.

Rental Requirements

1. Towards Reservation

We need to know detailed information about you and your group members, including your itinerary, certification level, and dive experience.

2. Refresh Dive Session

To prevent underwater accidents, Dive Shop Blue Field has very strict company rules. We recommend it for all divers who have not dived for more than 6 months. In the session, you will practice some basic underwater skills. We strongly recommend the session if you will make a whale shark dive.

3. The Day Before your Diving

We will leave a message at your hotel on the day before. We will give you very important information including meeting time. Please make sure to get the message. Please let us know if you are not staying in hotels. We will think about other way of communication.

4. In the Morning of Diving

If you are obviously hang over, or look very unhealthy, we may cancel your dives. Please avoid drinking too much or overworking the night before, and have a good sleep and food.

5. Certification Card and Dive Logbook

If you are joining our dive trips for certified divers, we need to see your certification card.
Please bring it with you – for that sometimes it’s hard for us to confirm your certifications issued by non-PADI dive agencies or certifications issued outside Japan, before your dives in the morning.
If we cannot confirm that you are certified, even if you have over 100 dives or so, we have to take you for Discover Scuba Diving Program, which is limited to 12m depth.

6. Doctor’s Certificate

If you have Yes to any of the questions listed in the PADI Medical Questionnaire Form, you will need your doctor’s (preferably someone who is knowledgeable about  hyperbaric medicine) note or official health certificate with his/ her signature. This applies to anybody over 60 years old.

7. Be a DAN Member!

We strongly recommend anybody who dives to join Diver’s Alert Network, for obtaining important information and insurance for hyperbaric chamber treatments.

8. Weather Condition & Dive Site

We always do our best to accommodate your dive request. However, with bad weather conditions, we may not be able to have the dives that you wished for. The dive tours may be cancelled  in the morning, or at the dive site, if the boat captain or the dive master think it is hard to have safe and fun dives. We will try our best to let you know the current condition and our perspective on it to discuss change of dive plans or  possible cancellation.

9. Cancellation Policy

We do not charge cancellation fee for your reservation. However, we would like to ask for your courtesy of  letting us know your cancellation at the earliest on your convenience, possibly at least 2 days before your reserved dive tour date.

10. Withdrawal from Dive Trips / Courses

The dive instructor holds a right to ask you to withdraw from your dive trips with the following behaviors / conditions.

  • You look obviously hang-over / sick
  • You do not take the instructor’s advice which can interfere dive safety
  • Your behavior is interfering other diver’s safety
  • You get lost from the dive group constantly

 

FAQs

1. Do any of your Divemasters / Instructors speak English?

Yes, we have some English speaking Dive Instructors available for you. Since they are bilingual, it is no problem organizing a trip for you and your Japanese friend as well.

2. I may be traveling by myself.  If I travel by myself, will this be a problem with respect to diving?  In other words, will it be okay to buddy dive with other divers on the trip?

No problem even if you come by yourself. You will be buddy up with somebody in our group or with one of us! We take our boat our to the Kerama Islands or Okinawa West Coast even from just one diver.

3. I am a beginner, and haven’t dove for a while – do your have some kind of Refresh Dive Course?

Yes, we have a Refresh Dive Program

4. Do you have Nitrox tanks available?

Yes, we offer Enricher Air (Nitrox) tanks available for Nitrox certified divers (32%).
Starting May 2010, we just began renting Nitrox tanks officially as a few dive shops in Okinawa.

5. When is the best time to travel to Okinawa?

We would say from March to December is good time. We have mild, warm weather, and calm sea- good conditions for scuba diving during that season.

6.What is the best time of the year for diving with whale sharks?

All year around or we would say summer is better. Since the whale sharks are in the net offshore, with the wind and swells from North or West in winter, whale shark diving gets sometimes cancelled. During the summer time, we have more days with south wind and calm seas, so more chances to get to dive there!

7. I have had asthma before. Can I dive?

There are some medical conditions which you would not want to have, when you go SCUBA diving.
Please read the medical questionnaire to see if you are fit to diving. If you are not sure about some questions, please ask us for advice you may need to see your doctor before participating scuba diving activities.

8. What are included in your rental gear?

Full Rental: $3,500 JPY
Mask, Snorkel, Boots, Fins,
BCD, Regulator
