Learning to Dive with Piranha Divers

Learning to dive with us in Okinawa gives you the benefit of our small classes and high regard for safety. For entry level certification our maximum class size is only four divers to one instructor. For all other courses the maximum class size is six divers to one instructor, so plenty of time for your questions and concerns to be addressed.
All courses are taught in English or German, and we guarantee you personal guidance through the entire learning process to make sure that you’ll be a comfortable diver after certification. Visit learn to dive to get more information.

Our Favorite Divespots

The northern parts of the island are nowhere near as developed as those further south. Which is why we like them. Not only do you get to experience some of the hidden adventures Okinawa diving has to offer, you also get a glimpse into a more traditional Okinawan lifestyle.

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
Jacques Yves Cousteau

 

The Piranha difference or 3 good reasons to join us!

  1. Fun, We offer a personalised experience, all of our diving courses and underwater adventures are held at a ratio of no more than 4:1.
  2. Our gear is available in sizes XXS to XXXL, we recognise that good fitting gear adds to the fun while good working gear adds to the safety of a great dive. At Piranha we provide both! In addition to that we are certified by manufacturers to work on gear from Aqualung, Apeks, DiveRite and Tusa.
  3. We speak your language, all of our services are available in English and German, some are also available in Japanese.

2020, 2021 is a period of change for many but here at Piranha Divers we try to make the best out of this and am trying to change from an average tourist operator to an adventure company. During the next few month we will update the homepage and programs we offer.

Two major changes are going to happen in 2022:

We are changing from PADI to SDI/TDI by January 2022. This will provide us with more freedom as on how to teach divers. Of course if you a diver from any other agency you can still dive with us or take a training course with us and be sure your training will be recognised anywhere in the world.

Piranha is doing an effort to become more “green”, we gave up on the old diesel truck and are now hauling divers and dive gear around the island using an electric vehicle.

As for the boats we imported a sailing catamaran from Europe added an electric engine and are hopefully up and running in the first quarter of 2022. This is the first commercially operated boat with an electric engine in Japan.
