My Divemaster Internship was an interesting experience. Robert runs a tight ship and is very particular about his equipment which is why it is in such good condition and well maintained. Paul is a good instructor with vast experience. The diving from Kamala beach is ideal for family members with non-divers on holiday in Phuket. You can get two dives... More

Robert Klein, manager, has set up a solid team at his Merlin Divers shop with Ben and Gaston who were extraordinary guides, displaying solid professional preparation and knowledge. Whether they were guiding certified divers- my two children and myself through 2 long dives- or leading an exploratory dive with my wife, they were well trained, had knowledge of the area... More

Writing this for the two boys I'm traveling with who came back raving about their experience. They said they had plenty of room on the boat (juxtapose that with the day before when we were packed like sardines on a different boat tour) and an awesome guide girl from Switzerland. They were spoiled with fruit, drinks and snacks all day.... More

if you are looking for a half day dive trip in phuket, I would highly recommend merlin dive, the owner Robert is friendly and very helpful, dive guide is experienced and the equipment at this dive center is very new and well maintained. The dive center have Swedish, French, German and English speaking staff. Pricing is very reasonable. 这家潜水店是普吉岛最适合半天潜水活动的。他们家的工作人员都很细心和友善。潜水设备都很新。价格也便宜。

Had a great experience with Merlin Divers. Robert, the manager, was prompt with his email responses and reserved our spots quickly. The day was exactly as advertised from the organized hotel pickup to the dropoff. Spent a day out at Phi Phi with Scott, the instructor. Very personable diving experience despite the many divers on the trip. Koh Bida Nok... More

My husband and I booked three days' diving with Merlin Divers and were very pleased with the service we received; both from Robert in advance by email, and from him and his team whilst in Kamala.

Good days diving with a friendly and helpful group. I did 2 dives with Merlin, I was picked up from my hotel as arranged, despite their car being out action. Solid boat and good friendly guides.
