After a rather unpleasant experience for the open-water dive by another dive school, my husband was not keen to proceed with the advanced open-water course. But after hearing about my friend's recommendation and good experience he had with Sharkey, my husband agreed to give diving another try. The experience and care given by Iain far exceeds our expectations, and my... More

Another couple of wonderful days' diving with Iain and Oui - wonderfully organised, skillfully guided and charmingly cared for. Fourth time with Sharkey Scuba and very happy.

We traveled to Phuket in December 2014 and I had the responsibility of planning our activities there. TripAdvisor reviews are all so glowing for Sharkey Scuba that it was tough to imagine that the real experience would beat even that! Sharkey is slightly more expensive than the regular operators but that should not even be a concern for you. It... More

I’ve just finished another great diving trip with Iain and Oui in Phuket. As always their professionalism and attention to detail was great. Over the weekend I completed my Padi Photography course which was interesting and with Oui’s help, I learnt a lot. The diving was very good and Iain did a great job finding plenty of little critters for... More

I just recently spent two days diving with the Sharkey Scuba team, Iain and Oui, and had a wonderful experience getting my Advanced certification. From the very beginning they were quick to respond to our email inquiries and made the whole process as seamless as possible. All our transport and equipment requirements were managed by the team and we never... More

Very efficient returning of emails by Iain leading up to the dive. Oui is my very first lady dive master, not only is she beautiful, but very professional. Ill admit I'm not the greatest diver out there but not for one instance did i feel i was in danger of any kind. Will definitely try to return and book again.

We booked a 2d1n liveaboard and 2 day trips with Sharkey and were thoroughly impressed with their service and hospitality. Iain and Oui took turns to take care of us on the trips and made sure that we are properly educated on each dive site and water conditions. They were very knowledgeable on the fishes too! 5 stars for them... More
