Overview of your Jeju tour:

Jeju Haenyeo, or the "sea women, " are a captivating cultural tradition hailing from Jeju Island, South Korea, and have achieved UNESCO recognition as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. These remarkable women practice a centuries-old tradition of diving into the sea without modern equipment, relying solely on snorkels and goggles. Their exceptional breath-holding and free-diving skills enable them to gather various marine resources, including seaweed and shellfish. This unique practice has made them an indispensable part of Jeju Island's coastal communities. The Jeju Haenyeo tradition is more than a livelihood; it's a cultural symbol that embodies resilience, cooperation, and a profound connection with the sea. Their knowledge and skills have been meticulously passed down through generations, ensuring the preservation of their unique way of life.
