    Fantastic Private Tour!

    This was a fantastic private tour with very friendly tour guides! We had MachE and Wei (spelling?) and they were the BEST! The weather was not the best on our tour day, but our guides made up for it. They were informative, fun and knowledgable. They catered to everyone's abilities in our small group ranging from beginner to expert levels. If you want the best guides and a seamless tour, choose this company!

    We had a great time with our guide, Matchi. She went out of her way to show us cool things in the water. The kayaking was also really fun! Pay the extra 2500 yen for the guide to take pics - it's worth it!

    Amazing tour

    The tour was amazing and memorable. The tour guides were friendly and personable throughout our time. Couldn't be any happier with it.

    Really enjoyable experience

    Had fun kayaking and snorkeling today. Pity weather conditions did not allow us to go to the Blue Cave, but the snorkeling was great and Maco was a great guide - very friendly and patient. In fact everyone at Aruguide were really nice and helpful. Hope to have the chance to go back and experience the Blue Cave in future.

    The Weather was too choppy to go to blue cave so we went snorkelling nearby instead which was still quite enjoyable, but ultimately a bit of a let down.

    Good snorkelling, goood kayaking, good english, good equipment.

    Great experience and wonderful guides!

    We had the kayaking and snorkeling experience. Our guides were wonderful and could also speak English and were very clear and patient. I get seasick/carsick easily, and the waves and water were pretty turbulent, so I recommend that you prepare accordingly if you're like me with anti-nausea meds. It was really fun, though, and our guides taught us how to whistle by blowing through shells! Would definitely recommend and do it again.

    Worth the trip

    Honestly, the pictures don't do it justice. We were having so much fun we forgot to take many! We saw every kind of tropical fish we could think of; even clown fish on anemones. The cave is beautiful especially at high-tide. Would definitely reccomend.

    Breathtaking underwater world

    We booked the trip only one day before and were surprised to get a very quick positive response for the time we requested. We got a car ride from our place to the starting point, and all the appropriate equipment was provided. We were just four tourists and Mati, our guide, so it was very comfortable. With little experience in snorkeling and no experience in kayak, it was for me still very easy to manage the trip. Mati was very friendly, spoke a very good English and provided us with informations about the things we were seeing. The fishes and coral reefs at the Blue cave were really amazing and the view was unbelievable, despite of the crowds of snorkelers and divers, that are hard to avoid. I highly recommend this crew!
