I am Harada but I am usually called by the nickname Aru. I am a guide for Okinawa so I am opening a nature and sports shop called “Aru Guide Okinawa”. Let's play in nature around the sea! Let’s sweat! Let’s take risk and adventure!
Relax and enjoy with my kayak, snorkel, and stand up paddle tour.

    Enjoy A Day of Snorkeling at Okinawa Blue Cave with Kayaking

    Enjoy A Day of Snorkeling at Okinawa Blue Cave with Kayaking Prompt pick up from Hotel within Onna area (inclusive in package). Tour guide, Yuko, is very friendly and gave very precise instructions. Gears here feels of decent quality. Kayaking at Mablibu Beach is very relaxing with the scenic view. Due to weather conditions, we could not snorkle at Blue Cave. Nonetheless, the tour brought us to a safer place where we could snorkel. Water is very clear. Caught sight of quite a number of fishes. Most corals here are dead though. I would recommend Aruguide if you want a guide who can speak good English and focuses on safety :)

    Enjoy A Day of Snorkeling at Okinawa Blue Cave with Kayaking My friend and I booked this trip at last minute and it turned out to be a great decision. The whole trip was about 3 hours. My friend doesn't know how to swim and this was his first time kayaking as well. He loves it. Highly recommend for everyone including kids, nonswimmer and kayaking novices. The cave is smaller than I expected but very blue with natural light. The water is super clear with a lot of fish to see. Ryan, our tour guide, is awesome. Thanks for a great trip!

    Enjoy A Day of Snorkeling at Okinawa Blue Cave with Kayaking I came to Okinawa to visit my son who is in the AirForce. I was surprised that he and his buddies never heard of the Blue Cave. We had a great time, really enjoyed the tour, and the pictures our tour guide took for us. My son says he will definitely bring his friends back for a snorkeling and kayaking day. I highly recommend.

    Enjoy A Day of Snorkeling at Okinawa Blue Cave with Kayaking We were excited about going to Blue Cave and also being able to kayak there. From the start Aruguide were very accommodating - we had read that sometimes the cave is closed if it is too windy and we had asked Aruguide to confirm our arrangements the day before our tour so we would know what to expect, they came back as requested. The wind was too strong on the day to kayak to the cave but we could still go for snorkeling so we kayaked around the beach before being transferred by car to the cave. The kayaking portion was pleasant and our guide Maco was great with trying to make it interesting for us given the change in itinerary. There was a lot of people in the cave and outside as it was the start of the busy season but still a great experience. The cave was smaller than we'd imagined and very crowded so we had to wait in line for the photos and the snorkeling outside was probably the better part of the tour but was good to tick the cave off the tourist list. Overall good experience made better by the private tour for the two of us.

    Enjoy A Day of Snorkeling at Okinawa Blue Cave with Kayaking 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!
