Contacted these folks to book a last minute dive with my Son and was met with the kindest of service. With barely any dives under our belt, we were led by Richard to three incredible sites just outside Seragaki Port. We could not have been more pleased with how the dives went. We were provided with the most excellent, professional, friendly service that has most definitely earned them a returning customer for many years to come. Thank you so very much for the memories you helped us create! We will never forget the experience we had today. See yall again soon! \m/

So Rich for started is exactly the person you want in your life when your either on vacation or live within the area. Have to say he has the most diverse and unique diving spots for all ages to go to and depending on the wants of the person he conforms your wants to the best spot to fulfill your wants for that day. I recommend all the time and will highly recommend in the future to all... experience this charter once and you'll probably never go anywhere else. Every adventure is full of laughter, experience, and just a family vibe you can't replace with any other charter or company.... your definitely not just a number with this guy.

I just got back from a week long dive trip to Yonaguni island with Richard, and it was the most amazing experience. We were lucky enough to see sharks on every dive. Richard works very hard to make sure you have the experience of a lifetime and he does not disappoint. I would recommend English empire divers to anyone who wants the best experience.

If diving is a country, Richard would be the prime minister. He’s literally a living encyclopedia when it comes to diving. I’m a Japanese speaker and I would have no problem spending my trips with the local company (which I did too) but with Richard, he offers one of the best thing a traveler could have; time flexibility. Most of my trips with the local company was good too but the time was so strict where you have to follow all the itineraries given. Richard won’t only wait for you if you needed some more time from a deep dive (he’s a beast! Never gets tired! Lol), even the after dive, he would spend time with you if you asked him for a quick snack and some chats. And even at night you could ask him to hangout too and learn more about Okinawa. He has been living in Okinawa for a long time and he definitely can tell/advise you everything you need to. In terms of safety, worry not as his equipments are well maintained, and he himself ensures that you will always feel at ease; taking care of you during all the dives with 0 worries. I wished I had more time but the next time I’m here, Richard’s definitely my first choice. I highly recommend him for all the reason that you’ll be worried for, he’s there for you! I guarantee that! Much love bro! Faris
