Even though my wife and I hadn't been diving in a few years, Jan was very accommodating and helpful in getting us back up to speed quickly. A native German, he speaks excellent English, and can navigate communication in Japanese with ease. Jan's small shop is outfitted with quality gear (also with larger sizes for Westerners) and he's quite familiar... More

Piranha Divers: new gear, safe, and informative. My wife and I were lucky to meet "Jan" from Piranha Divers while diving with another outfit called Top Marine. The hotels in Onna will try to promote Top Marine as it is a large outfit. Don't use Top Marine!!, instructors are sloppy, the air tastes like chlorine, and gear is falling apart.... More

We are so lucky when we first dive at 青洞, no snorkelers only 3 of us!!! I'm so enjoy the moment in the cave. For the second dive, too bad i always clean my mask, but still saw some lovely macro things like pipefish、some adorable shrimps and fishes!! Very nice experience. Thanks Jan :)

My girlfriend and I went diving with Jan during our stay in Okinawa. Jan is one of the best instructors we have ever had! He took us to some great sites and was very patient with our group (which only had 4 people). He is really knowledgeable about Onna and speaks excellent English. I would highly recommend diving with Jan... More

I recently completed the PADI Scuba Diver course with Piranha Divers. Both the equipment and service were faultless. Divemaster Jan, aside from being a professional and responsible teacher, is an experienced man with a great deal of useful advice for foreigners in Japan. I am glad to have met and learned from him.

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.
