Our group of 5 were the only ammateurs on the boat. The staff catered to all our needs even after i felt a bit sick and ended up getting it on one of the... More

I've been back to Sharkey Scuba and must say that again I had a great experience: Stress-free diving in an amazing underwater world. Oui and Iain provided me again with a perfect diving experience and I am happy to call them friends. It is easy to compare different dive companies on a large dive boat and Sharkey is just the...

What an unbelievably great experience! I had done a few discovery dives before and decided I wanted to get my PADI open water certification while in Phuket. I called Sharkey's and Iain was really accommodating and helpful. He brought all the materials I needed to my hotel that day and answered any questions I had. Oui was the best instructor... More

This is the second time we have dived with Sharkey Scuba in 3 years and to be honest one of the reasons we came back to dive in Phuket. Sharkey Scuba are professional in everyway. Iain organised our diving last minute and arranged the dive sites we requested. He replied to our endless questions and emails promptly. We dived the... More

Everything about diving with Sharkey Scuba was faultless. The experience started with super friendly and helpful emailing to arrange the trip, making me very eager to dive with them. I went on two days diving, once on my own and once with my friends on their first dive ever. The instructors Iain and Oui were so incredibly lovely, make you... More

With a dive centre on every street, there is fierce competition for underwater experiences in Phuket. Without hesitation, I recommend that you book with Sharkey Scuba. I worked with both Iain and Oui during the completion of a PADI Open Water Course. I really valued that all sessions were private one to one sessions AND delivered by the owners of... More

My boyfriend and I had never been diving before so when we were planning our first trip to Thailand we knew it was the one thing we really wanted to do! We went with Sharkey Scuba after reading all the extremely positive reviews on TripAdvisor and I now realise everything they said was true! From the initial contact with Iain... More
