Level 2 / Snorkel
haven't dived on Okinawa until you've dived at Maeda Point. At the reef's edge
and to the right, the depth is about 20 feet; to the left of the reef, it's
about 100 feet. At Maeda Point, you can see chromis, eels, tube worms, anemone,
clownfish, lionfish, schools of squid and an occasional turtle.
Kitamae Gate on Camp Foster, turn right onto Highway 58. Go north for 15.1 km;
you will pass Camp Lester and Kadena Gate 1 on the right and the fuel farm on
the left. Travel past Kadena circle and continue going north on Highway 58.
There is a stop light with a sign for Ryukyu Mura Village; turn left. Travel 3.2
km to a "T" intersection (you will pass Ryukyu Mura on the left.) Turn left at
the light on Kuraha road (also named Highway 6.) Go .8 km and turn right at the
sign for Cape Maeda. Go .5 km to the parking lot. If you want to go to Maeda
Flats, just before the parking lot for Maeda Point, turn left and go .2 km.
There will be fields on both sides of the road. Park by the tombs and walk down
the path to the beach.
Before suiting up at the point, check the
conditions at Maeda. Don't dive if the surf exceeds two feet. The stairs from
the parking lot lead to about 15 feet above the waterline. At this point, you'll
have to climb carefully down the cliff's limestone rock face before reaching the
water. Save some energy for the exit and the climb back up the stairs.
