Prime Scuba Ishigaki started in 2013 with the goal of becoming the best scuba diving operator in Japan to serve guests from all over the world. We currently operate with seven staffs with 60ft diving cruiser Blue Swan, and plan to expand the business as demand for our service continues to grow.


Ishigaki has been ranked as the #1 diving destination in Japan for nearly 20 years among domestic divers. As the country focuses on inbound tourism as one of the major source of economic growth, Ishigaki is expected to continue experiencing surge in demand from international divers, and building of infrastructure catering to these guests will be needed for years to come.


We compete on the basis of service quality. Competing on the basis of prices is easy, but this will come with the cost of safety for our guests and welfare of individual working in the industry. For healthy growth of the industry, we believe that we must compete on the basis of service quality, and this can come only from our staffs, who share the same goal, and strive to achieve this on daily basis.
