My 14yr old son and I upgraded from Suba Diver to Open Water Diver with Sharkey SCUBA in July 2014. Iain took us through our course and we then had two further days diving with Oui. Both Iain and Oui are very knowledgeable and professional in their approach with a friendly gentle touch. We dived in some (for beginners) challenging... More

This was our first time diving and we had an awesome time. Oui was our instructor for the day and she was really thorough in the instructions. There were 2 dives with the photo session in the second dive. Every thing was as per the plan. Would highly recommend this experience for first time divers. Thanks for the great day... More

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!!!
