We were lucky to have found EcoGuideCafe last year for our trip to Okinawa. This was our first trip to Miyakojima and we were really spoiled with the whole gang of amazing staff. Max, the English speaking manager was super helpful from the time he picked us up at our hotel, setting us up for the snorkeling tour, and our return back. The unique aspect of this guide service is they promote coral reef preservation and environmental conservation. The staff thoroughly described the know-how and benefits of ECO snorkeling/diving to the point of even picking up garbage at one of the beaches we visited! Respect! We need more and more environmental conscious people like this team so that we and future generations may enjoy nature's beauty! Highly recommended! Looking forward to going back again soon! Thanks again !

The team at Eco Guide Cafe really make everything easy. My wife had only been snorkelling before and was hesitant to go under the water but the "slow diving" with a full face mask and being guided around the house reef was so easy. As I have a PADI open water, I was offered the chance to go out further and explore with the guide. The snorkelling, kayaking and lunch were great too. Thanks for a great experience!

Last weekend I went down to Miyakojima again to experience my first diving adventure. I could use Eco Guide Cafe which has a fantastic crew that is dedicate to preserving coral (the owner Izawa-san recently received an award for his work from the Japanese government) and also knows where to take you. I loved the colour diversity and the fact that the fish are totally ok with humans so close to them, it was a unique experience slow diving, snorkelling, scuba diving and sea kayaking. Thanks guys and I will definitely be back for more!

I visited Okinawa last November and had my first snorkeling and slow diving experience with the Eco Guide Cafe. The tour around Kayafa beach and beautiful spots in shimoji-jima was impressive. Guides from Eco Guide Cafe are like no others, they are knowledgeable coaches who will guide you through the entire tour, they are dedicated to preserving and protecting coral reefs and marine life. Through their efforts on educating people how to appreciate the beauty of nature, everyone comes to visit Miyakojima can see the stunning beauty under the sea. This year I visited Krabi, a popular tourist destination in Thailand, however, I saw litters scattered on pristine beaches, less tropical fish and lots of dead coral reefs under the sea. Even some tourists beat against corals and behaved vulgarly like they consumed everything. This reminds me of the very different tour organized by the Eco Guide Cafe, they are not just guiding a tour, but also raising public awareness to care about our environment and the mother nature. I would strongly recommend Eco Guide Cafe to enthusiastic nature lovers, they will show you the most beautiful Miyakojima blue and the true color of Okinawa!!

Like many other reviewers here, I have done a fair amount of snorkelling and a little diving around Asia, but nothing comes close to the experience to be had at Kayafa Beach. Crystal clear water, a zillion varieties of marine life and some truly breathtaking coral. It really is hard to remember that this is part of Japan. So, a beautiful place to snorkel, agreed. But what makes this such a great day trip is that the staff at Eco Guide Cafe really know what they are doing and provide a great balance between instruction and self-exploration. Emphasis is on safety and ensuring all participants adhere to their Eco Manner code of conduct. Basically just common sense things like not touching the reef or leaving litter. The highlight is the full-face mask 'slow-diving'. You can breath normally through your nose and mouth since your entire face is covered. Perfect for beginners or those a little wary of the water. But, a word of warning... floating lazily around the reef in the hot sun may be one of the most relaxing things to do ever devised, but it leaves you extremely exposed to the elements. Make sure to cover up all appendages, especially if you burn easily. Note to self.
