Every day there are eight diving displays by the Ama divers at Mikimoto Pearl Island. The first one is held at 9:20 am and the final one at 4:20 pm. When I was there, the tide was low, and the water was shallow enough to see the white costumed divers moving around below the water. For a small extra charge, visitors can watch from a special viewing room while listening to a commentary in their choice of language. The haunting whistle that Ama divers use for breath control is a sound you will never forget!
