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

He knows the area and speaks excellent English, allowing for a worry-free and enjoyable diving experience. He will go out of his way to make sure that you... More

From what I found online there aren't many English speaking dive operatorbin Okinawa, so my choice easily fell to Piranha Divers. Since the beginning communication has always been easy, Jan was responsive and keen to answer any questions I had. He basically dives almost every day during peak season and accommodates even small groups, which gave me the flexibility to... More

Of all the places I have dived, unfortunately when I went diving at Okinawa with Piranha, the experience was not good at all. The dive master "Jan" messed up the timing of the boat and told us wrong in advance. So he showed up 30 minutes early from proposed time and didn't prepare my girlfriend and I at all; with... More

I'm sorry to hear that the trip was not as you expected. Here is my side of the story: Yes, I miss calculated the entire trip by 30 minutes, because I planned a the trip from a different boat before but could not due to weather. Weather and wave condition in April can switch a lot. I'm working in the... More

My 12 year old son and myself travelled from Tokyo to join Jan in order for my son to complete his Open Water part of the course. Great weather and great diving. Jan provided a very good service and made the dives fun. Highly recommended !!!! Thanks Jan, we will be back!

Best dive shop if you're in the northern part of Okinawa. The owner Jan explains everything about diving clearly, so no need to worry if you're a new to this sport or experienced.

Jan helped me book accommodation and sorted all that for me- Pension Weekend see separate review- and due to a typhoon I only managed a day diving. The dives were great. Well organised and interesting, he kept us away from the crowds and took in interesting caves, a coral renewal project and a great wall/drop-off. He even fixed my mask... More

My husband and I were visiting from the US and did a two-tank boat dive with Jan. He picked us up from our hotel in Nago. He was so nice and helpful - we would definitely go back! This was our first dive after getting certified but he made us feel comfortable. We also rented all of of our gear... More
