Okinawa offers a lot with its subtropical climate and spectacular ocean. You can day sail around most of Okinawa and mooring is available all over. The main marina is Ginowan Marina which is located on the main island. Recommended places to see would be the KEREMA Islands, Miyako, Ishigaki, Taketome and Iremote Islands. Fishing is also awesome. During the summer months, you will be guaranteed to catch Tuna, Mahi Mahi (Shira in Japanese) and Boneto (Katsuo in Japanese) Beer is cheap and people friendly. Typhoon season is during July to Sept. Best to avoid these month, but if you are determined to come you will be close enough to reach a port at many of the islands.
