Iheya is the northernmost island of Okinawa prefecture so it is located further northwest of Cape Hedo.
It is a small island and its atmosphere is very peaceful and far from touristy, which produces a number of great dive sites.
Above all others, coral reefs are incredibly beautiful and healthy, which attract many fishes. And for those who love big and schools of fishes there is an exposed rock away from the island which is a hot spot for tuna, big eye trevally, barracuda, sharks, etc. And dive sites are always to ourselves! Never gets crowded.
The Iheya trips are 2nights-stay, 5dives. We go there several times a year between May and October.
Dive sites : Indy, Isobana, Majin boo, Triangle, Mini Arch, Suu ka buya, etc...
Depth : 15~30mtrs/45~100ft
Visibility : 20~35mtrs+
Recommended level : Basic to Advance. We occasionally do drift dives, aiming for big fishes.
Attractions : Super healthy coral reefs which is hard to see in Okinawa mainland (don't get me wrong Okinawa mainland has beautiful coral reefs but Iheya's reefs are just beyond them!), colorful sea-fan corals, big fishes, white tip reef sharks, tuna, napoleon wrasse, barracuda, white spotted eagle ray, marble ray, etc...
