The instructors are excellent, are knowledgeable, practice and demonstrate safety for the divers and protection of the environment. My second time taking courses from them and will go back. They even pushed their vacation to see to my needs when they found out I was coming to town. Highly recommend for beginners or those looking for more advancement or specialties.

My husband dived with this group. He is an experienced diver and dived in many countries. His review is one of highest accolade. We prebooked our dives from Oman which was simple and safe! The weather was not kind but managed one out of two booked trips. Safety of divers is paramount and the second trip was cancelled due to... More

This was my second time scuba diving after doing the Great Barrier Reef a year ago. I thought that was well run but this was something else. From my first email enquiry Iain was very open, communicated regularly and answered all of my questions. I was in no doubt that he knew what he was doing. On the day the... More

We had an amazing day. Oui is a thoroughly professional but patient coach and a lovely lady. Diving under her coaching was an unforgettable experience. Three dives at three locations and we got to see the wonderful marine life in the clear emerald waters of Phuket islands. So beautiful that we did not want to come on surface. Feels like... More

Sharkey organised a trip for us earlier this year. One of us snorkels and the other is a beginner diver. Iain is a patient and helpful coach and made sure that we both had a great day. He also ensured that other divers were safe and behaved well under water. Overall, a very professional and engaging guy. Hoping to go... More

A little background before I review the services. We were travelling to Phuket for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and I researched a bit on tripadvisor for scuba options there. I've always wanted to scuba dive, ditto with my wife, but we also wanted my mother who is 69 years old to do it. I started communicating with Iain from... More

I would like to share my experiences especially with those who never did diving before and the one's who want to undergo this magical experience all by themselves. From the very first contact I have been taken care of professionally and very kind by Iain and Oui. It was important to Iain that I truly understand what I need to... More
