Cable is very close to the port of Minna Island, just north of Olive. While not very poetic, the name of this dive site comes from a giant underwater cable, which connects Minna Island to mainland Okinawa. Quite a few crevasses cut through the coral reef here, and while most of them are wide enough, you do need to be very careful not to damage the corals. If you look carefully, you can often times spots eels, nudibranchs or even a manta shrimp. In the absence of boat traffic, lucky divers can also occasionally see a turtle resting under one of the rocks.
