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

My husband and I took our first vacation from Guam to the beautiful island not knowing anything about it except what people had told us and recommended to us. We were pointed in the direction of Harry and we got a lot more than we could have asked for! Not only did he get us in with little notice, he... More

Amanda and Dave were very new divers, and joined another couple who were here on their honeymoon all the way from London. Both couples were fairly new to diving, so I tailored the dives to their experience and comfort level and made sure everyone got back in with plenty of air and were comfortable throughout. I'm hoping they make it... More

Some of my fondest memories of living on Guam was being able to hop on a plane and dive with Harry. Without much ado, he will introduce you to Saipan's most wonderful reef spots. He's casual, safe, fun and knowledgeable with regard to what makes conditions vary off of Saipan's coast.

I had a great time taking Cammy diving while she was here, and then enjoying a cookout afterwards. I'm so glad to hear of my customers perception of me, that they feel I am casual, safe, fun and knowledgeable, it means I have been very successful in showing them the best time possible. I think one of the highest compliments... More

This customer completely hit the nail on the head when it comes to my philosophy, safety + fun, that is what it is all about. I take safety very, very seriously, and will do everything I can to give you all the information you need to be safe, and then watching you carefully on the dive to make sure you... More

Diving with Harry was superb. Very relaxed diving in small groups (no more than 4 guests); was more like diving with friends than a company. Harry’s extensive knowledge of the dive sites meant we saw some fantastic marine line and behaviours. Would love to go back and dive the other sites! Harry’s knowledge of the island and its history was... More

My girlfriend and I dove four times with Harry (owner). The first two dives were at the grotto, we are both beginner divers and were a little leary however Harry had his wife Carrie who is also an instructor accompany us as well. The grotto was amazing, and Harry/Carrie went out of there way to make sure we had a... More

I really do all I can to avoid group diving situations. I much prefer private instruction and guiding, it just makes for so much more comfortable an experience. When I get a chance to take a couple like this diving by themselves, or even better with my wife, I can assure that everything will be catered specifically to them, ensuring... More

We did 2 days of shore diving with Harry (the owner) last year and he is extremely knowledgeable, fun and safe. He coaxed out sea life from the crevices like eels, octopus and other sea animals. Since I am new to diving, he made sure I was comfortable the whole time, even when I started getting a little nervous. My... More

I always welcome the opportunity to take new or nervous divers out. I like being able to show them how to relax and enjoy their time underwater and make them as comfortable as possible. Any time I can help take a diver to that next level I always feel like I have made a huge accomplishment. I'm so glad that... More

From Mon to Fri, 2 of us did total 15 dives with Harry, including boat dives, shore dives, and night dives. It was awesome! I started inquiry since late May, mostly via emails with Harry.

I had a great time with Angela & Jonathan. They told me they were fairly inexperienced divers, but they actually had very good skills and just needed a boost in their confidence. I took them on some of the coolest dives that Saipan has to offer, and definitely expanded their diving abilities and experiences. I truly hope they come back... More

There are many diving shops that are managed by Japanese, but trip adviser says the owner Harry is nice person, so I'm interested in him and had a reservation. Actually, Harry is really good man. Although we are beginners, he taught us so kindly, and let us show beautiful bottom of the sea. He told us good restaurant and bar... More
