The shop is on the west side of Plumeria street. It is painted peach, the dive shop is on the lower level, and there is a 2 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor. There are several signs saying Axe Murderer Tours, and PADI banners as well. We are one block away from Fiesta Resort.

Out teenage kids did the second part of their PADI open water certification with Harry and did four ocean dives at Lau Lau beach. We felt very safe with Harry, he has good equipment and takes time to teach step by step. A good choice for safe diving with an english speaking guide who knows the waters of Saipan.

Amazing experience - Did 2 tank Grotto dives Aug 2014, and now 2 tanks at Grotto June 2015, and 2 dives at Banzai Cliff (boat dive). Harry is very experienced - has 12-13,000 dives under his belt!!! He was great to dive with. I have only been diving for a year now, and felt safe under his supervision. The Grotto... More

If you like diving, go to Saipan and dive with Harry. My wife and I are just back from great diving holidays and we would like to highly recommend this address. Harry made us discover beautiful shore dives with his passion, professionalism and friendship. Hope that we will have an opportunity to return to Saipan soon.

I don't usually write reviews on Trip Advisor, but Harry, his amazing work and personality do deserve that! He has this very well located dive shop in Garapan where you will be supplied with very good gear to explore the island from another angle. I arranged a Grotto dive 2 weeks prior by email and once I got to Saipan... More

I had a great time with Natalia. She is a great diver, but just struggles with clearing her ears at the beginning of the dive, which made her very nervous. I went down with her very slowly and held her hand until I was sure she was comfortable and wasn't having any more problems. I loved learning about her native... More

I went to Harry to get my OW course, the class went well and I had a very good time. I was lucky that I had a private class. Harry is very responsible, he gave me a lot of care, including making sure I have the best fit outfit, making sure I get all the underwater skills, etc. He is... More

I had a great time teaching this delightful lady to dive. She came here by herself to learn to dive. Her husband had to stay in Korea and couldn't come with her, and I knew he was a bit concerned about her safety while she was here, so I made sure she was as comfortable and safe as possible at...

If you want to scuba dive in Saipan, look no further, just go with Harry. Make sure you book in advance with him :) My wife and I did two dives at the Grotto and it was amazing. I was a bit uncomfortable with my first dive but after Harry explained how I should keep myself buoyant properly, my second... More

Many of the divers I get are certified but don't have a lot of experience, or just don't dive that often. I could see that Mathias was struggling with his buoyancy on the first dive, so I gave him some tips during our surface interval to help him with his next dive. It made all the difference in the world... More

My wife and myself dive with Harry and Carey yesterday in Grotto. Although my wife didn't really enjoy the cave dive at certain point during our first dive, Harry came in and calmed her down. In the end, we still completed a 30 mins dive. If it's not Harry besides my wife, i cannot image what the outcome would be.... More

I really enjoyed Michael and his wife. As we were heading back toward hole #3 outside of the Grotto, I could see that she was clearly feeling some anxiety. I didn't want her to panic her husband, so I went over, took her hand and reassured her that everything was fine and I was in control. She then relaxed somewhat... More

I dived five times with Axe Murderer Tours, two at Lau Lau, two day dives and one night dive at the Grotto. All of them were fantastic! I saw HUGE coral reefs, a large swarm of fish, a turtle, and a dotted eagle ray at Lau Lau. The night dive at the Grotto was my first night dive and a... More

I truly enjoyed taking Ting diving and showing her what Saipan has to offer underwater. I believe that by tailoring the dives to the individuals comfort level and skills, it makes it that much more enjoyable for them. I always try to give personal service to every single customer. Please hurry back Ting! More

トリップアドバイザーで1位だった理由でダイビングをお願いしました。 私自身が日々の仕事に忙殺され、ハリーさんとのやりとりは何通かのメールだけでしたが、ホテルへのピックアップから最後のホテル送りまで、完全に信頼のおけるインストラクターに出会えたことは本当にラッキーだと思いますし、とても感謝しています。 グロットでの3ダイビングはタフでしたが、ハリーさんのおかげで最高のダイビングの思い出となりました。 素晴らしいホスピタリティーをありがとうございます\(^o^)/ またサイパンでダイビングする時はお世話になりたいです。 Thank you for your great hospitality and See you soon Mariko & David

I thoroughly enjoyed having Mariko and Dave dive with me. They did 2 afternoon Grotto dives and then turned around and did a night Grotto dive the same night. That is not for everybody, as you need to be in very good shape and your legs need to be able to handle it. I was very impressed by both of... More

A friend and I went diving with Axe Murderer Tours several days in a row. They had been recommended by several friends from the U.S. and Guam, and did not disappoint. The shop at their second Guam location called the "Beach House" was so new they were still getting organised, but the Chris and the staff were friendly and knowledgable.... More

I am glad that this customer had a good experience in Guam. However, I need to point out that Axe Murderer Tours Guam and Saipan are not linked in any way and have totally different owners. I am responsible only for Saipan and my customers here. Any comments on the Guam shops should be left on the Axe Murderer Tours... More
