Zanpa is in Yomitan area and we highly recommend visiting the lighthouse, where you can find a small museum and can even go to the top for that perfect Instagram shot. If you arrive with a car, a big car park can be found next to the walking trails.

Cape Zanpa diving

We offer our dives here from a boat only. Although some of the dive sites are accessible from the shore as well, climbing down on sharps rocks and changing currents with high swells could make it very challenging from the shore. So keep it KISS, we stick with boat dives. 

Zanpa is for those...

Zanpa is for those, who just loves diving between interesting rock formations and who are always searching for that hidden swim throughs and deep water fish. Due to its location, surrounded by deep ocean, the variety of fish is amazing. Everything from Nemo to giant Tuna and Shark can be seen and as a unique addition at the dive site called Lion Rock, there is a remain of a WW2 tank sitting on the bottom at one of the dive sites and the lucky ones still can find some old bullets from that era.
