I have moved my shop behind my house, since I don't really need a retail setting anyway, I just need a place to store all the gear and equipment. I offer hotel pick up and drop off for my customers. I offer a full range of scuba certifications from Discover Dive through Divemaster and everything in between. I am also a very experienced dive guide with over 10,000 dives on Saipan. I specialize in private instruction and guiding as I believe it is a much better experience for the customer if I can cater everything specifically to them. I typically book up in advance, so if you want to dive with me, please make reservations ahead of time.

I loved having Nacho & Josephine diving with me. Josephine had a bad experience previously on a night dive and therefore was very nervous about it. I assured her that I would be right there, holding on to her if it made her feel more comfortable. She discovered that night diving is very magical and there really isn't anything to... More

Jacky & Nico planned their dive vacation last minute and fortunately I was able to fit them in. I book up in advance fairly far, so I'm not always able to accommodate last minute requests, but I'm always happy when I can. More

Lizz needed a little bit of encouragement and extra time going through some of the skills and to just make her comfortable in the water. That is what I am all about, I specialize in people who are nervous about the water or diving, and do whatever it takes to make them feel as comfortable as possible down there. I'm... More

I dove with Harry Blalock, owner of Axe Murder Dive Tours. We did 14 dives including 3 night dives (took the PADI night dive class) 2 of which were in the Grotto, Saipan’s signature dive location. The best thing about diving the Grotto at night is we had it all to ourselves. Harry is the only one who dives the... More

I truly enjoyed having Jim diving with me. We got to do many different dives and have a wide range of experiences. I do like being able to concentrate on just 1 or 2 customers, that just makes it a much better experience for all of us. I have been diving since 1970 and have been diving in Saipan non-stop...

My father and I did two dives with Harry, owner of Axe Murderer Dive Tours. We were not disappointed! He was helpful answering my numerous questions before our dive, and continued with this service throughout the experience. He picked us up at our hotel, drove us to the dive site (Grotto), and patiently went over the plan for the day.... More

I did my open water certification with Harry in 2013 and booked more diving with him when I came back to Saipan recently. He is a great teacher and awesome dive guide. If you are coming to Saipan to dive contact Harry.

We had a tropical storm approaching Saipan when Lizzy was supposed to be diving with me. The storm made all boat dives impossible, and the only dive site that was divable was the Grotto. I explained to Lizzy that we could still do her Advanced certification, it just meant that all the dives had to be in the Grotto. She... More

Had a fantastic time diving with Harry aka Axe Murderer Dive Tours in Saipan. We went on some great dives, the best being the Grotto to the north of the island. Would thoroughly recommend diving with Harry again. Next time would like to include a few wrecks. Thanks Harry.

I'm glad Christian enjoyed himself, we had some very good dives together. I am always a little confused when I don't get a 5 star rating. Sometimes you can do everything right, but the person just really doesn't rate anything that highly. Oh well, it will just make me try harder next time. More

Went on very interesting dives and I feel very comfortable with my diving skills. Harry also offers a really good price for dives if you already have your certification. Harry knows all of the best spots to see whatever sea creatures you're looking for! Would be good for families as long as the kids are 10 or older. You don't... More

Harry is the owner of Axe Murderer Tours in Garapan. Shortly after meeting him, it was apparent that I was in for a great time.
