My son and I took the OW certificate, with Poul as the MasterDiver. We enjoyed the training and Pouls patience, humor and professionalism. When Robert realised, that I was missing the pool training, he picked me up on his scooter with 10 minutes notice :-) to join a planned class.... fantastic flexibility... I can warmly recommend Merlin Divers, and will... More

Had a great time diving with the team from Merlin. Had Greg and Paul as my instructors for the PADI advanced open water course and both were very knowledgeable and helpful. Big thanks to Robert and team for giving me an awesome experience.

My Dive master Andrew was more of a dive buddy. I felt like he was seeing the sea life as if it was his first time. I also Merlin long boat dives. Two dive and back early to the hotel. What a Great Team at Merlin Divers. Cheers Mark

Found them on tripadvisor and had a few email communications. Their email provided the most detailed information than other shops so I chose them. When I arrived, it's a 1 to 4 course, which is good. The instructor Paul is a good teacher, expressing everything clear and understandable. With all the four dives, he did a good job and a... More

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
