The concept of Zero Gravity is to generate a safe and secure location for all people, normal and handicapped, to learn about and enjoy the wonders of the ocean.
Zero Gravity was founded as a result of one man’s passion for diving. After experiencing the joys of scuba diving off the island of Hachijo 25 years ago and being astonished by the wondrous sensation of free-floating and moving in 3 dimensions, he became determined to share this breathtaking experience with as many people as possible.
He began searching for ways to make this marine environment safe and accessible to handicapped people. In the spring of 2016 he was finally able to complete a barrier-free facility at Seisui, Setouchi-cho on Amami Island. This marked the beginning for a new project where people who are limited to their wheelchair in normal life are now able to enjoy new and exciting marine activities!
These experiences are not only for the disabled. Normal people are also able to appreciate and enjoy the wonders of Amami Island along side their family and others who share the same passion.
In addition to scuba diving, Zero Gravity offers whale watching, kayaking and snorkeling. Both local and international food options are available to keep your energy levels up and ready for more fun!
