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

Harry rocks (especially if you like talking politics). He prefers taking small groups, like, just you. He knows to go to the Grotto really early so that you'll be the only people there. Figure $180 for 2 tank dive and equipment. More for the tee shirt. He is an American ex-pat who knows the island. He is safety oriented and... More

My son and I had absolutely the best experience with this dive shop! Harry not only took the time to know our experience level and comfort level, but also cared enough to take our experience to the next level. I never had the chance to dive with my son until this trip so he made it a unique family experience... More

I never dove in my life until I met Harry, and in about a week I received my open water and advanced open water certifications. Now I feel very comfortable diving after the skills and concepts that I was taught by Harry. Learning from him is a very personalized experience and you don't have to worry about learning in large...

Harry is great fun, well experienced, and provides the ultimate in safe Saipan dives. A long time Saipan resident,he knows the best dive sites of the seasons, weather conditions, currents and tides. This is one "axe murderer" you can turn your back on. The best boutique dive operation anywhere.

Diving with Harry is like visiting your favorite uncle that you don't see often enough. His Axe Murderer Dive Center is a personalized boutique dive operation that feels like home as soon as you get there. We set up our dives via Email and the responses were quick and clear. The morning was two dives at the Grotto (not to... More

We went to Saipan and contacted Axe Murderer. They are responsive over e-mail. We only had one afternoon available, so they took us to the Grotto. Originally I was nervous about diving there (down to 100ft, or a little more), but the divemaster was very attentive to our needs, and making us comfortable before, during and after the dive. The...

I emailed Harry with a last minute request to go diving while on vacation. He emailed me back very promptly with a couple of options. I explained that my girlfriend was a new diver and English is here second language. He quickly replied not to worry that he will ensure that all instructions a clear and also not to worry... More

My husband and I showed up on Saipan having just completed our open water certification course. We had never been diving without our instructors but felt confident enough to jump in on two of Harry's dives. The gear fit great and worked well, it was as simple as showing up at the store and jumping in the back of his... More

I had a great time with Allie and her husband, and truly hope I see them back on Saipan sometime in the not too distant future. They are both very comfortable and good divers, especially considering they just finished their open water course. Thank you so much for diving with me and hurry back! More

Harry provided two excellent two tank dives. The best part was that he did not act like many dive masters that want you to follow them around during the dive. Harry allowed us the leeway to do what we wanted with our dive buddy but was cognizant of all the divers in the group, their safety and their air supply.... More

I truly enjoyed having Cedar, his wife and brother in law with us. They are very seasoned and experienced divers, and definitely don't need to be babysat and watched every second. Part of being a good guide is reading your customers and knowing what they need and want and then delivering it without making any fuss about it. I truly... More
