Pirate Ship Park l Okinawa Hai!

Not to be confused with the pirate ship at Araha Beach, this pirate ship is entirely different. I actually don’t know if you would call it a pirate ship, but that is what the kids say it is.

Pirate Ship Park l Okinawa Hai!

The park features a large wooden ship. There are lot of nets, stairs, a zip line, and other places to climb and explore on the ship. The best part was the little cart you sit on and then pull yourself to a different section of the ship.

The park also has two small slides. The bathroom looks like a giant crab!

Pirate Ship Park l Okinawa Hai!There is street parking and vending machines. This is also right up the street from the Dragon Slide Park.

Directions: From Foster- Go out the Legion Gate, making a right at the light. Take the left at the light to stay on 330. You’ll be on 330 for a while. (You can also take the expressway to exit 2) After you pass exit 2 of the expressway, you’ll want to take a left onto 241. Pay attention because 330 actually goes over 241, so you’ll have to sorta exit 330.  Once you are on 241, take a left at the third stoplight. Take a left at the third intersection and you’ll see the park on the left.

From any other base: Take the expressway, getting off at exit 2. Head south, towards Naha on 330. Almost immediately, you’ll want to sorta exit 330, so you can take a left on 241. Once you are on 241, take a left at the third stoplight. Take a left at the third intersection and you’ll see the park on the left.

    From Lindsey on 9/20/13:
    “It takes about 45 min to get here from Kadena gate 2 and it is NOT worth the drive in my opinion. It is a neat little park but there are better options closer to home and traffic on 330 is a beast!”
