Jan was very helpful, and explained everything needed. I'll choose him for my next license or just for fun diving definitely. Everything was wonderful.

I only had three days in beautiful Okinawa, and in that time I wanted to upgrade my PADI Scuba Diver qualification to Open Water. Jan was very helpful in instructing me for my qualification on my tight schedule. I had not dived in some time and Jan was very patient with me and I had a couple of wonderful dives.... More

Jan was super helpful, knowledgable and friendly. Did everything he could to to make our diving the best possible. Perfect if you speak little to no Japanese.

I've always been very hesitant about water related activities, but I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity of a lifetime. It was challenging at first (especially mask clearing, ugh!), but with Jan's helpful and friendly guidance, I was able to complete my 3-day OWD certification. Have fun and remember to breathe!

We booked last minute & Jan was very accommodating with booking our diving & helping us find a place to stay. A quick chat about local eateries was also very helpful. Safe & easygoing, I felt very well looked after. Thank you, I highly recommend your dive school

Just did my open water certification with Jan earlier this week. It was a very good experience. Jan is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. If you need a top-notch dive shop in Okinawa, Piranha Divers is the place.

I visited Okinawa for diving on with Piranha divers Okinawa on 12-14Sep. Overall dive experience was really nice with blue water, small group. We could go with the Van from Piranha to boat pier. Jan's recommendation on Pension Weekend was very good with excellent breakfast. Professional staffs including Jan himself and Dan.

We chose Pirahna Divers based on their excellent Trip Advisor reviews and English speaking employees; we were not let down!! We booked our trip ahead of time on the Pirahna Divers website. Despite the time difference, Jan responded promptly with the necessary details. He even suggest an easy to find location to meet, which was very convenient since we were... More

I was working in Tokyo and suddenly had 5 days off of work. One e-mail and one phone call and Jan (the owner) arranged 3 days of diving, 4 nights of lodging, and a few other minor details. I caught the next flight to Okinawa and followed the instructions on their website to the nearest bus stop where Jan picked... More
