I took the introductory dive trip with sharkey scuba this past Sunday. Before going I knew nothing about diving. Oui was a great teacher and made me feel very safe throughout the whole experience. She is very enthusiastic and made my first diving experience one to remember. Highly recommend!!!

I've just finished my PADI rescue diver certification in Phuket over a long weekend with Sharky Scuba. Both Iain and Oui we're really knowledgeable, thorough and friendly. With their 20+ years of diving experience they had all the answers and shared many relevant stories and experiences. Both Oui and Iain really helped us and made the trip very relaxing, everything...

If you are looking for good diving then Phuket is the place. If you are looking for great dive masters then Sharkey's is your place. I arrived in Phuket with a group of six but only I went diving with Oui, had such a good time that my whole group went for a snorkel trip two days later. Such great... More

We have been with our two boys (now 12 and 17) at Sharkey Scuba for them to get there scuba licences and it has been a great experience for both of them. Oui and Iain are very supportive and instructive, making the experience enjoyable for all involved. We made quite a bit of changes in the planning, and Oui and... More

Sharkey Scuba is run by Iain and Oui, a husband and wife team. They are well organised, professional and fun to dive with. I felt very spoilt with a personalised attention I got. Whether you are an experienced diver or new to diving you will be well looked after and have a great day diving.

I spent two days diving with Sharkey Scuba and had a brilliant experience. Right from the start with my booking enquiry, Iain was very friendly, helpful and professional. Oui is an excellent instructor, and her enthusiasm and professionalism made for very fun and enjoyable diving. I will definitely be diving with Sharkey on my next trip to Phuket.

This is the second year I have dived with Sharkey and both times they were a joy to deal with. Super organised, informative, punctual. It is so nice to have the stress taken out of the bit between the hotel room and the dive site. Everything was exactly as Iain said it would be. And the diving was great too.

A couple of years ago Oui took my wife and I out for a couple of days' try-dives. She was so happy with her first diving experience because of Oui's care and attention and her fun approach (always taking time to point out the interesting sights to see). We were so lucky to see several (small) sharks too ... So,... More
