Very nice staff, good shape equipment. There is a brief before every dive. 3 people/instructor which is ideal. My instructor is Sachi, she's professional. We saw mantas, amazing.

Thank you for diving with Prime Scuba Ishigaki, and glad you enjoyed our service! It was early season, and the weather may not have been perfect, but it could well be one of the best time of year as the island is not too crowded. Glad you were able to see mantas!

Sachi was the best! This was the first time I've ever dove under the sea. I had always wanted to do it, but was always nervous because I'm not a strong swimmer nor have I ever snorkled. I did the Discover Scuba Dive with a friend and Sachi was our wonderful instructor. She was so amazing, kind, and made the... More

Thank you for diving with Prime Scuba Ishigaki, and glad you liked our Discover Scuba Diving program! Diving can be intimidating to some people. Nevertheless, when accompanied by proper risk management, it can be truly enjoyable regardless of sex and age. 2/3 of the earth is ocean, and there is so much to see! Hope you will have some more...

Enjoyed 3 days with them. This was the first dive after we got the OWD. Thanks for Tomo and Sachi, our dive masters. They were professional and gave us unforgettable memories in the sea. We saw beautiful creatures and fish such as several big cuttlefish, several manta rays, turtles, shrimps and many many. There are many things to see in... More

Thank you so much for diving with Prime Scuba Ishigaki, and glad to know you had fun time! Spring could well be one of the best season in Ishigaki - it is not crazy hot, water is still a bit cool, Manta season has started, and Giant cuttlefish as well as nudibranch is still around.

Good organisation and pick up, English speaking, friendly staff, new high-spec boat, very good lunch. Made an effort to accommodate our wishes for dive sites (Manta point to see the rays). Relatively expensive as diving goes but in line with other companies on Ishigaki-jima.
