First whales of the season sighted off Kerama Islands

Date Posted: 2002-01-04

The first whales of the season were photographed on Dec. 24 when staff members of the Inasaki observation platform sighted two humpback whales off Yakabi Island, west of Zamami. Seeking to escape the cold northern waters, humpback whales migrate to Okinawa for its warm winters and provide whale-watchers with several months of excellent views of the mammals. According to the Zamami Village Whale-Watching Association, tours are scheduled to start Jan. 5 and will continue until the beginning of April. In addition, the village痴 whale-watching festival for 2002 is slated to begin on Jan. 18.
