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

The operation is very well organised and Robert and his staff make everything very easy for you in terms of equipment rental and care... More

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.

I first met Robert and his team two years ago and when we decided to come to Phuket (Bang Thao) again I had not been thinking even a minute about choosing any other dive shop. Robert offers perfectly organized half-day two-dive trips to local sites as well as broad range of trainings under umbrella of PADI and SSI. All instructors/dive... More

We visited Phuket again this new year and made a couple of dives with Merlin. First we went on a half day tour to Koh Weo and Tin Lizzy. These trips are easy to do- the long tail boat is waiting just 50 meters away from the shop, The boat is well suited for diving and with sun shade- a... More

When I first came to Phuket, diving was at the top of my list of to-dos! I am so glad I decided to work with Merlin Divers! Paul, my instructor, was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable and was very good at making you feel safe, calm, and taken care of while under the water. I began with my open water... More
