Syd and his team were great on my dives last week! They provided excellent service, thought of all the details like providing cold drinking water AND rinse water, and most importantly made me feel safe and comfortable while diving. I would absolutely dive with them again! Five stars!

Syd and his team are just the best. We finished our certification with them and are so glad we did. Like many Americans living in states with winter, we did our book and pool sections of the coursework at home and it provided us with very little time to work on buoyancy and basic swimming skills. If we were to do it over, we'd do the whole course with Syd. He not only really knows about diving, he understands people. He knew instantly what we needed to learn and how to teach us. He took it all very seriously while encouraging us to have fun and remain in awe of what we were seeing. And we saw some pretty awesome things in Saipan - like a large group of eagle rays! We haven't had a dive since that was as good as the dives we did while working on our certification. We will always be grateful to the whole crew at Fishguyz for opening up a whole new amazing world to us.

My wife and I went for six dives over six days (one day diving, one day off). We had to change our schedule more than once, and Fishguyz was incredibly accommodating. We dove many of the interesting sites by request. They picked us up from our hotel in Garapan, and took us either to the dive shop (for boat dives) or direct to the dive site (shore dives in Grotto and Lau Lau). They were extremely knowledgeable about when to dive to avoid crowds, as well as what special and interesting things to see at the sites. We found schools of Eagle Rays at the "Emily" dive site, fire scallops at "Pipe", and special tunnels at "Lau Lau". Their fees were more than reasonable, their rented equipment was of excellent quality, and their positive attitude was infectious! I would 100% recommend them to others, and 100% dive with them again!

While visiting Saipan I was able to get over ten dives logged, Sydney and his team do an amazing job. Before I booked with Fish Guyz, I contacted several other dive shops but found Fish Guyz to be the most responsive. Several of the other dive shops actually use Fish Guyz boats and gear, by working with Sydney and his team you’re bypassing a middleman. The team at Fish Guyz is very well trained but super kicked back and relaxed, no egos. The dives in Saipan are all beautiful and unique, a wide variety of sea life that includes barracudas, sharks, dolphins, turtles, octopuses, beautiful corals and large school of fishes. There is a good mix of boat dives and beach dives. As touristy as it is, the Grotto is a great worthwhile dive, probably my favorite.

We 3 girls went to Saipan and aim at seeing turtles. We sent inquiries to several tour agents in the internet but no one did fast reply except Fishguyz. And they do support WhatsApp communication which is convenient to overseas visitors. 2 of us did not have a licence but Fishguyz got discovery scuba diving which allow people with no license to do shallow water dive. They provide small theory lesson and training before we go to dive. Originally we planed to dive in laulau beach, we followed their suggestion to go to another better diving location in a rainy day. We were so happy as we had seen many fishes, corals, historical war remains and 3 turtles in our 2 dives. The areas they brought us to were in clear visibility even in rainy weather. They provided us lunch box which we had booked in advance, USD$7 each, it was so delicious. Syd, Chocolate and Tabo was so professional, experienced, funny and warm friendly. They made our day more memorable. Will miss them. I would commend them to you if you want to go diving in Saipan.
