POLE POLE DIVE Kashiwajima ポレポレダイビング

Welcome to POLE POLE DIVE site.

We specialize in Marine life watching and underwater photography guide diving. 
To fully enjoy the ocean of Kashiwajima Island, we keep our daily guests small (6Guests).

We are the smallest diving service in Kashiwajima Island.
Our guiding policy is simply,
“ To show you the real Kashiwajima that we love and dive every day”
Not just take you on a guided tour, but to try to find new discoveries together and enjoy together in each dive tours we venture.

Safety and nature friendly diving first.
We like to keep our diving depth shallow so we can stay longer to watch and take photos of the local marine life. When we do have great visibility, we also enjoy following the large school of fishes, play with turtles and just enjoy the clear blue waters.

Have you ever experienced being left behind by your guide? That will never happen with us. We will always be there by your side. Sometimes we may leave you alone for a little while to find you a new subject to see, but we will always be in the close distance and will come back for you.
Many of our guests dive time does go over 60min, sometimes over 70min. So please bring along an extra layer of wet suites to keep yourself warm.
