Spontaneously, my friends and I decided to go to Phuket for four days. I called Robert, the owner of Merlin Divers, three days before our arrival in Phuket to see if it would be possible to get the open water course done within that time. Even though our request was on short notice, Robert went out of his way to... More

I cannot recommend Kamala Merlin Divers highly enough. A flawless experience from a very well-run operation, complemented by friendly staff. Local knowledge is very good. And divers are lavished with great food and drinks and snacks. A big thanks to ever-enthusiastic dive guide and instructor Robert whose knowledge of diving is as broad as his obvious passion for the sport.

Both my boyfriend and I dived with Merlin for 2 days in the past week. On the first day we went to King Cruiser, Shark Point and Koh Doc Mai. On the second we went a little bit further to Phi Phi Island, where we dove on Bida Nok, Turtle Rock and Shark Point again. I couldn't recommend Merlin Divers... More

Back for more diving with Merlin's. It's been ever a year since I dove with Merlin Divers and was thrilled to come back for another dive vacation. Hitting the off season has it's benefits with boats not as crowded and a more relaxed time without the crowd. Robert set us up with a great agenda hitting all the hot spots;... More

Just booked and completed a dive trip with Merlin Divers and am seriously impressed. After diving for over 20 years it is refreshing to come across a totally professional, friendly outfit. 10/10 guys, keep up the excellent work.

Really well looked after by Robert and Marcus. From the crack of dawn until the end of the day chilled out, warm and engaging. Made all the difference especially as I was diving by myself. I dove with Marcus, who was excellent from start to finish. Had great weather, warm water and no drama. In short; All Good! Made it... More
