I was supposed to do my certificate with Jan but unfortunately he turned out to be sick on the day I arrived. Instead I did the discover dive with him the next day, which was very nice and flexible of him. Definitely a professional who cares deeply about giving his customers real and valuable diving experiences. As for the diving... More

Had a great time with Jan getting our open water diver licenses in early October. Kit seems in good condition (as far as a novice can tell) and Jan really takes the time to make sure everyone is comfortable and taking in the instructions, rather than just rubber stamping the licenses (as opposed to some dive shops elsewhere). Had one... More

We dove the USS Emmons with Piranha Divers. They were professional and the rental equipment was of good quality.

It was our 2nd time to dive in Okinawa, and it was the best one. Jan is a very professional instructor providing very good service & dive tools. He shares his dive experience and encourages people to challenge themselves since diving is an adventurous sport. We looking forward to dive with Piranha Divers Okinawa again.

My girlfriend and I recently went with Jan to USS Emmons. We were impressed by Jan's straight forward and efficient attitude as well as the high quality of rental equipment. USS Emmons is a challenging dive and unfortunately, due to a slight mishap, we were unable to continue to the second dive of the day. However, this event really brought... More

It had been a while since we last dived and Jan was very patient with us. We didn't speak a word of Japanese however this was not an issue. Yan was able to give us a quick overview in English to jog our memories and we were away. Our first dive was Blue Cave and was packed with snorkelers and... More

Glad I went with my gut instinct and dove with Piranha. Jan took me to Manza's Overhang Rock & Nakayuki. Navigated through tunnels, met a huge turtle, sea horses, schools of... everything you'd want to see in Okinawa. I asked Jan for a challenge and he gave me an adventure!

I expected much higher dive safety standards in Japan! My dive certification and/or logbook was never checked and there was no dive briefing on the first dive. Just jump into the water, with no dive master or buddy allocated. Only when I complained dive briefings were introduced. The first dive in Blue Cave was terrible with many novice divers and... More

Took the open water diver course with a few friends and had a great time. Jan was very responsive and accommodating throughout. He is a fun and competent instructor with a great sense of humor. Highly recommend him and his dive shop for an authentic diving experience in Okinawa. Thank you Jan! -three 'AMAZING' girls from HK :)

I wanted to check out some underwater macro creatures in Okinawa. Thus, I found Piranha Divers as the top choice on Tripadvisor and inquired about booking a trip. Both Jan and Tomoko (owners) made communication clear and easy over e-mails. On the day of my dive, I was greeted by Risa who was extremely friendly and passionate about her job... More
