About Aruguide Okinawa
Where does the name Aruguide come from?
The “Aru” of Aruguide is the nickname of our manager. He was one of our original guides for guests on their adventures around Okinawa, so we created the name Aruguide.
Our new logo
It symbolizes our philosophy of harmony with nature.

The Aruguide philosophy
Everything Aruguide uses is maintained and looked after by ourselves. Our Marine House is special as it was custom-made by our staff from discarded materials. We have also taken care of our shop vehicle for many years by having our staff maintain and repair it themselves. We live in an age where many people simply replace an item with a brand new one if it breaks. But we believe that repairing and using a product until the end of its useful life is important. If we look after and repair things, they can be used for much longer.
Let’s try to save our limited natural resources.
Sea and nature of Okinawa
Recently, the sea around Okinawa has been affected by development. Litter is often washed up on the shore, and when it rains, the sea turns red from runoff from the rivers. Some marine tour companies in Okinawa also feed tropical fish to attract them, negatively affecting the underwater ecosystem.
We will be your guide in Okinawa’s breathtaking sea.
“What can we do to sustain the sea’s beauty for generations to come?”
We hope that after your experiences with us, you will be asking yourself this question.
