Busena Marine Park, Nago
(4.1/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
Explore what lies under the sea without ever getting wet at Busena Marine Park. To see the fruits of the marine park, visitors take a tour on a glass-bottomed boat, and head to the underwater observatory. Both experiences offer sights of a wealth of aquatic creatures, with the glass-bottomed boat primarily focusing on a coral reef and its colorful residents. The underwater observatory sits 170 m (558 ft) away from the coast, submerged at a depth of 5 m (16 ft), and offers sights of a sea grass habitat, populated by clownfish, damselfish, wrasse, and many more tropical and subtropical species. Busena Marine Park is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Nago Edition.

  • I went with my wife and children. I can see Nemo (clown fish)? By saying that I was looking forward to children. Also good was that previously went to busenateras Beach and pool is somewhat nostalgic feeling came again. Beyond the beach, at the entrance of the marine park. Later I realized that parking out shuttle. This day was windy, so watch out, hats etc. May be a little hard. Marine Park, buy a ticket at the entrance. Along with the look of the submarine boat tickets purchase. Near about 3-5 meters down the spiral staircase. When you take small children, high humidity and slippery, so dangerous, so watch out. Never in, no. 10 degree limit? Each 360 ° direction have round Windows, so look out. It looks very much, gracefully swimming fish was strong on this day. You bought before, but near the entrance to sell fish bait at 100 yen. Do not give fish in marine park. Staff who'd went up from scattering food from here! I taught. I thought more engagement and surprise! Try it once!

  • Will be watching fish swim in the ocean without any inhibitions, unlike the fish into the aquarium with underwater observation tower. Fish swept though is called "hard look muddy" wave day, natural and cute. Within 10 minutes walk into the Park, but is there a bus service to the underwater observatory, so you can move faster than you may wait for a bus.

  • I went to an observation tower. 50-step spiral staircase to the observation tower. Go down the stairs and lots of fish! Clownfish is always visible as it and "nemo! "And the kids enjoyed. Vantage in good condition, good said. I think even 11-bridge to the Conning Tower is very hot because summer is tight. Stayed in busenateras and get 20% off tickets. Go by car to the Observatory, utilizes a shuttle bus to the Conning Tower from the parking lot in front of hotels and hotel.

  • Went for the glass bottom boat ride, saw some fish and corals. Good but not great, especially for those who have seen nicer reefs.
  • The water is amazing blue, the glass bottom boat offers a great view of the corals and lots of fish
  • From the windows on the observatory floor 5 meters under the water, you will see various tropical fish out there, such as Clownfish, Zebra Angelfish, etc.
  • Good
  • Awesome view with Okinawa 🍜.
