My experience with Merlin Divers was a great one, they are kind, friendly and understanding staff. Because I have difficultly with equalizing they were patient and waited for me to descend at a slow pace. We saw a great diversity of marine life including ; Reef octopus, leopard shark, cuttle fish, sting ray, peacock mantis shrimp, seahorse, harlequin sweetlips, lionfish,... More

Robert and his team are doing a great job. We had a very smooth diving trip, and enjoyed it very much. Special thanks to our diving guide Gregory, he took care of everything. They are very professional, totally recommend.

We were picked up at our hotel for our day trip to Phi Phi Island National Park with 3 scuba dives/snorkeling. The dive boat (shared with other dive centers) was really good, the instructor fantastic (Thanks Greg!), the equipment great, the dive sites well chosen & the food delicious (breakfast&lunch was served)! Thank you for a wonderful day! We definitely... More

Dived with Merlin Divers based on the great reviews. We arranged a full day's diving to Phi Phi in July. Robert (owner) was very informative via email in advance and personally picked us up and sorted us out with good quality equipment, before escorting us to the shuttle bus to the dock. He had arranged for us to dive with... More

I hadn't been diving in ages, but the owner of Kamala Divers was very reassuring. He recommended an easy dive with a really experienced guide, and they made sure that I was fully aware of procedures/signals, etc. The equipment was in very good condition. It was an enjoyable experience - and I resolve to dive more frequently in future! I'll... More

Did my DM internship with Merlin and its crew. Had a great three months diving. The Divemaster course itself takes about 3 weeks to complete and following this I worked as a diveguide around Phuket's local dives. This is when the actual learning process starts. I did a total of almost a 100 dives in three months and learned a... More

I did my DMT with Merlin Divers from Feb-May 2015. This is the best dive shop in Kamala and offered an amazing experience for training in the Phuket area. The dive shop itself offers a range of equipment and products from different companies. If you can't find a product to your liking or sizing, Robert (the owner of Merlin Divers)... More
