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

Loved my Scuba diving with Sharkey. Great experience. My guide was Oui, from the time I booked my dives through interactions with Iain, meeting Oui and finishing my two dives it was extremely satisfying. Oui was kind to me through the boat journey to the diving point. She taught me basics well and I could dive on my own in... More

The team at Sharkey Scuba were outstanding. From the fast replies to my queries to the organisation of the day. It all exceeded my expectations. More importantly though was the dives themselves. I was pretty nervous but Oui was amazing and put my concerns at rest. The tutorial on the way to the dive site was thorough but easy to... More

I took a daily scuba trip with three introductory dives with Sharkey and absolutely loved it! Everything was perfectly organized, locations were really nice. Foremost, because of the super nice hosts, Abby, Oui and Iain, I am definitely coming back. Strongly recommend :)

Just came back after my fourth visit to Phuket and Sharkey Scuba. As always, a flawless operation from Iain & Oui. Lot's of excellent dives, although not the greatest weather conditions on a couple of days. As mentioned, this was my fourth trip here and I will keep coming back again and again! Not only are the dive sites spectacular,... More
