Why Tokyo Divers?

    Dive Sites
  2. Weekends - You don't need a day off to learn, in as little as three days over two weekends, we can get you a diving license that opens doors everywhere. (If you want to do a consecutive class, please reach out to us)
  3. Community - We are an english diving shop here in Tokyo eager to take you diving but also provide the opportunity to meet people in this city. Make buddies both below and above the water

3 Steps to become an Open Water Diver


Get started with Elearning and familiarize yourself with the theory behind diving. Once you have built an understanding of what it means to be a Diver, when we will get ready to get you in the water. You can go through the learning at your pace from anywhere with an internet connection. If of course you have any questions during the theory, reach out and we will be happy to answer.


Let us organize a day trip to a pool on the outskirts of Tokyo to conduct in-water skill-development training. In the pool, you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the gear that makes breathing underwater possible. Our instructors will work to incrementally increase your skill level so that you feel comfortable for the open ocean.


Finally you're in the Ocean 🐟 Over the weekend, we will repeat the primary skills done in the pool so that you can get comfortable in less controlled conditions. At the same time, it is our priority to both find you fish but also to have an enjoyable weekend with good people. You might make a new friend, be it human or fish.
