Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I had an honor to spend few days and dives under the wings of the guys from Aqua Connections and I was very pleased by the customer orientated approach. Stuff was very friendly, professional and respectful.
I can only highly recommend Aqua Connections Dive Shop.
Diving at Saipan is treat itself.

I have done my training and All my dives through Aqua Connections. Not only has the diving instructor been patient and knowledgeable, but he has been able to pick up any “abnormal behaviour or distress body language” without me even having to signal him. Yugo is very observant and in-tune with his divers. I always feel 100% safe when diving with Yugo and Hiro. Feeling safe allows me to enjoy my dive and experience all the beauty underwater. Diving at Ice-cream dive site, has been one of the most enjoyable and unforgettable experiences. We were able to get VERY close to the Eagle Rays and swim alongside them without disturbing them. We were very fortunate to see a MASSIVE sea turtle having a snooze - who also did not mind us getting close to him.

I dove with Aqua Connections twice while in Saipan. They were extremely friendly and accommodating. Normally I set up my diving well in advance but I was travelling to Saipan on short notice and took the risk of waiting until I arrived. I had no idea it was Japanese Golden Week, a big holiday week in Japan, so tourism to Saipan was heavy. Aqua Connections was so kind to squeeze my partner and me in for 2 days of diving, 2 boat dives and 2 shore dives.

All the diving operations on Saipan (around 30 total catering to different ethnic backgrounds/speaking languages) are small but Aqua Connections in the largest. They mostly cater to Japanese tourists but also speak English. I had a rental vehicle but they offered to pick us up at our resort and were prompt.

I rented a wetsuit, BC, and regulator. The gear was worn but well serviced. My boyfriend's regulator was a little leaky on one of the dives and it was taken to be serviced right away. My boyfriend is also a hoover underwater so they gave him a larger tank at no extra charge so we could dive longer.

Our Dive Master Yugo was friendly and kind. We asked him lots of questions about the island life and he was great to chat with. Yugo was our personal Dive Master for all the dives which was so great. I'm used to tourist diving in the Caribbean where there are 10 people to every Dive Master, which, I don't think is safe for some divers.

I requested a couple boat dives and was told they could put us with another group already scheduled to dive. I requested to see some wrecks if at all possible but understood they were already booked in advance. They managed to work it out so we could do some wreck dives which was so nice.

We also asked to do a couple shore dives and requested Grotto as one of them. The conditions weren't great on dive day so we dove at Lau Lau beach first which I really loved. The spur and groove formations were incredible and entry and exit were easy with Yugo's instruction. Next, we drove to Grotto but it was closed due to the swell. Yugo offered to take us back to our resort and we could try and dive Grotto in the afternoon instead if conditions cleared up. He basically reorganized his whole day to accommodate us (a truly nice guy). Conditions didn't improve but Yugo tried his best to figure out a way for us to dive Grotto before our flight. We had so much fun at Lau Lau though we didn't really care about Grotto and went back to Lau Lau. Yugo showed us the "fish tornado" on the second dive and we had a blast.

When I go back to Saipan, I will be sure to use Aqua Connections again.

During our stay in Saipan my boyfriend wanted to go for a few dives and opted for Aqua Connections, which is centrally located near the main resorts and hotels at Micro Beach. Everything was arranged and prepared smoothly. They pick you up from your hotel and drive you to the dive center on the day of the dive. Due to the weather the captain decides for the actual dive sites in the morning of the dive. His dive isntructor was Hoshi, a Japanese with very good English skills and 10 years diving expreience in Saipan. He took good care of my boyfriend and made sure that the dives were a good experience. The visibility was stunning and Hoshi made sure that all the local fish could be seen. Thank you Hoshi for the great dives!!

We had in laws to visit us during the Chinese New Years celebration. They all are very experienced divers and wanted to experience the underwater life in Saipan. The staff at Aqua Connection made sure that we experienced just that! Fantastic diving at several sites which included and outing with several White Fin Sharks and 40 or more Eagle Rays. The gentleman in charge of our diving, was none other than the famous Star Star. We had a wonderful time, I never knew what I was missing in my own backyard!

I would highly recommend aqua connections as they really take care of you and plan the schedule ahead to make your diving experience as pleasurable as possible.

Diving groups are small and intimate, and the guides know all the great spots in all of the dive sites. The pictures they take are amazing and service is phenomenal. Would highly recommend this shop to anyone visiting Saipan.

I'm visiting Saipan on an island hopping vacation. I looked a bit into the diving before coming and most of the shops seemed about the same price more or less. Once I arrived, I emailed one of the shops, Aqua Connections and they were quick to respond. The shop was also down the road from my accommodation, so I stopped in and talked with Star. He got me signed up for 2 boat dives the following morning. I did bring my gear, so I rented. Equipment was all in good condition. To save some money, bring your gear if you have it-- as all of the shops charge $25-$45 for rental. The diving was good and relaxing. Visibility was some of the best I've seen (in comparison with Cook Islands). We were all instructors on the boat, so we could space out enough during the dives. I was happy to see a white tip, eagle ray and few Titan Triggerfish on my dive. We also visited the Grotto which was great! Thanks for the great time to Star and the other staff for taking photos during the dives!

Hadn't dove since 2000 and PADI rescue certified. Aqua Connections gave me a customized profile dive to LauLau beach and a great refresher to feel comfortable again in the water. Saw beautiful octopus and a turtle during my adventure. Instructor/owner stayed close and set my mind at ease so i could enjoy my dives. A perfect two tank morning!~ Thanks!~ Karl in Tokyo.

Aqua Connections is one of the best dive shops I recommend on Saipan, their service is very professional and my family and I felt completely safe in their hands! They have a lot of experience in making sure that your diving adventure is both safe and fun. Would go diving with them any day again!
