As my first diving experience in Thailand I could not have asked for better people! Everyone at Merlin is truly professional from personal pickups, to excellent gear and very qualified instructors. Thanks Robert and team, you will definitely see me again.

The Center is located directly in the city centre of Kamala. I took my AOWD Course in April 2014 with Merlin Divers, so I decided to do my Rescue and Divemaster here aswell. The diving is great. Local trips are halfway trips and the dive sites are nice. Robert also sells trips on the big boats, with a own Divemaster,... More

I spent an enjoyable 2 weeks diving with Merlin Divers in November 2014 while visiting my girlfriend who was (successfully) training up as a divemaster there, so I definitely saw a lot of Merlin Divers and Robert coordinating the dives and divemaster training. Kamala beach was a lot more enjoyable and relaxed than other locations, and I definitely found it... More

We dived with Merlin divers in early may and were really happy with everything. We called Robert and he managed to get everything organized for the following day without having us going to the shop. Tuk tuk are overpriced in Phuket so we really appreciated that. On the boat all the material was prepared and in very good condition. Our... More

As a new diver, Robert and Markus really made me feel at ease, did my advance course with them, and the dives was amazing, as i was only used to high altitude diving, they assisted with the transformation to sea level without any issues.. Markus and Robert has real knowledge of the dive sites and friendly people as company on... More

I had an amazing dive trip last week with Merlin Divers. Robert helped me organize my dive trip via email before I arrived in Phuket as my trip timelines were tight. He picked me up from Nai Yang in the morning and ensured everything went smoothly. Markus was my personal dive guide for the day and was very knowledgeable and... More

It is very very cool in the deep water, many creatures although I cannot tell them . Staffs are very nice and professional!!! Although I'm a beginner, whatever trouble i come into, they will help me patiently. And the price is much valuable. Very nice trip!
