I went here following all the other positive reviews and was not disappointed - this is a great place to get your certificate! Jan was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, diligent - everything you'd like to see in a dive instructor. He also knows a lot about the island itself, which is always a plus in my mind. The area around the... More

Jan is one of the best instructors I've ever gone diving with. His equipment is in great condition and the dive sites are amazing. This was my first time going through caves. Before we left he clearly explained the details of the dive which helped me relax and I had a great time. The only con is the website was... More

Super glad that I chose to dive with Jan, who knows the dive sites so well to bring us down in the blue cave at night. Knowing the blue cave was always crowded with divers and snorkelers, I was a bit worried I could not enjoy the dive site as much. However Jan decided to bring us in at night... More

I did both my OWD and AOWD courses with Jan. Found him to be knowledgable, friendly and he was kind enough to accommodate my working schedule.

(Fun dives on the 26th of September) I had chosen Piranha Divers Okinawa because of the very nice reviews it had on Tripadvisor. After the 3 fun dives I've had, I have a mixed feeling. I can split my explanations in two parts: 1) the dives were awesome. I have seen lots of beautiful wildlife, including many turtles and so... More

Dear Sylvain, Thank you for you long and detailed review! I will try to address the points of your complaint first: * Pick up in the evening! Pick up is generally a service provided by the pension, however since people in JP don't speak a lot of English I do this pick up most of the time, even I'm not... More

Jan is a nice and well-experienced instructor. He speaks both English and Japanese. He knows the dive sites very well as where to see turtle, creatures and cave explorer. It's very fun and awesome to experience around, especially the cave area. Also, he will help you with your gears. My mask got fogging, and he gave me an anti-fog spray... More

I recently completed by PADI Open Water course with Jan at Piranha Divers, and would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to dive with an English speaking instructor. I did quite a thorough search for English dive schools in Okinawa and Jan came out tops for me, and he didn't disappoint! He is clearly very experienced and still has a... More

Jan is a fun and experienced instructor. Jan speaks fluent English and Japanese, his instructions are nice and clear about safety precautions. He communicates well with other professional Japanese divers (who brought us to see grey reef sharks). He knows dive sites inside-out and he brought us to interesting sites. Like diving to the crowded Blue Cave he lead us... More

It was our 1st dive with my siblings. Jan was awesome, friendly, helpful and taught us in details. It's nice having him 2 teach us and yeah! We got our diving licence. Unforgettable moment n missing the people there. One of my best moment!
