We came to Merlin Divers to learn and obtain an Open Water Diving certificate. The staff there were very friendly and helpful. As a result, we had a safe and entertaining 3-day course. We are very satisfied with Merlin Divers and will definitely come back in the future for more potential lessons.

I went diving for 2 days with Merlin Divers to get my AOW. It was also my first dive since I got my open water, and I was travelling on my own the first day, so was a bit nervous in the beginning, but no need to be because I absolutely loved every minute of my time with Merlin divers!... More

Spent a few days diving in Thailand. Before I arrived I did some research (mostly on here) and found Merlin Divers to be among the top of the list and I don't think I could have chosen a better local dive shop. The owner and head dive guy of Merlin is Robert who really knows his stuff. He easily recommended... More

Just came back from a 2 day dives trip with Merlin Divers. It was a fantastic experience for me and my 3 other friends. Everything is well planned, from good pickups at hotel, excellent and comfortable onboard experience in the boats. Robert was quick to response to my last minute changes of wanting to have a 15litre tank. And our... More

I couldn't be more happy with my final decision to go with Merlin Divers after a long and overwhelming amount of research at all the different options on Phuket and surrounding islands. I showed up as first time diver and am now doing my rescue course and plan on going on to divemaster through the free internship program they offer.... More

I dived off Phuket through Merlin Divers last month and would like to recommend them highly to anyone considering going diving in the Phuket area. I found Robert & his Dive Masters very professional in their approach to diving - everything was well organised from the hotel pick ups, transportation of the equipment to the boat etc. The quality, condition...

I took a 3-dive trip with Merlin yesterday and couldn't be happier. I booked in-store with Robert two days earlier. Very friendly, helpful guy. I'd done a bit of googling beforehand on the various dive sites but was unsure of which would be the best to pick at this time of year. Robert gave me some great advice and I... More

I spent my last holiday in December once more in Phuket, Thailand. Straight from the airport heading to Kamala. As I wanted to start diving right away my choice was made already: Robert and his Merlin Divers. Haven't been diving with them for over a year and It was great to see some old friends just as new cool guys.... More

Amazing all-included service with very friendly staff. Took the 3-dive trip to phi-phi, great value. Food was good! Thanks to divemaster Andrew Mouser who was very patient with us unexperienced divers. No matter your diving level, you will find what you need here at affordable price.

Never done diving before - with 65+ I was looking for a dive shop where I could feel safe. With Merlin Divers in Kamala I found the right diving center. I have never before felt, that diving was for mee, but after joining this center I am ready to go on and hopefully do a lot more divings in the... More
