It's winter, temperate that l have experience ranged from 20 - 23, & some divers even put on dry suit. Average dive time is about 50+ mins, so keeping your body warm is very important, esp. if you're taking u/w pictures, you need control over your camera, not the coldness over your body.

When five friends and I decided to dive in Japan, we stumbled upon Prime Scuba and were immediately interested. Although we didn't see any of the legendary Manta Rays because we were diving at the end of the season and the waters were a little choppy on our dive day, Sachi and Zohar made sure we had a spectacular dive....

Nothing is more rewarding to us than knowing our guests had great dive experience with us. Thank you so much for diving with Prime Scuba Ishigaki!
