The Ogasawara Islands, often referred to as the "Galapagos of the East," offer a unique and unparalleled diving experience. Being a UNESCO World Heritage site, it boasts an exceptionally rich marine life teeming with vibrant coral reefs and over 1,000 species of marine inhabitants. The azure waters of the islands present numerous well-preserved shipwrecks, allowing divers to delve into history as they navigate through these underwater time capsules. But the true highlights are the frequent encounters with dolphins and the majestic sperm whales.

Traveling to the Ogasawara Islands is indeed a unique experience. There's no airport on the islands, meaning your journey begins with a 24-hour ferry ride from Tokyo. It's important to note that ferry services are not frequent. You'll either need to return almost immediately after arrival on the same ferry or plan for an extended stay of 10 days on the island. Due to the limited ferry schedule, the trip dates are fixed, so it's crucial to ensure you can commit to the entire adventure. While ferry cancellations due to weather are quite rare, be mindful that Mother Nature occasionally has plans of her own, which can cause delays. Navigating these logistics is an essential part of your Ogasawara journey.
