On the spur of the moment I called Sharkeys to see if they could fit me for a dive the following day. within 15 minutes Iain had popped around to my hotel to give me the course information, check me out, measure me up and take my money ( all in that order!)
The next morning I was picked up by Oui who figuratively tucked me under her wing and introduced a diving newby to the joys of being underwater.
Oui was thorough, fun, encouraging a patient. While my spirit was willing my ears were somewhat reluctant participants and Oui was somehow able to reassure me through the mask and bubbles and water when I was in some discomfort. Although we traveled to the island in a large dive boat with 40 (?) other divers once we jumped in the water I had an individual tour of an amazing reef.
We dived in two locations on the island. For a total of 90 minutes. What I saw underwater was amazing.
I paid extra to have photos taken. I am still on my journey and haven't seen the final photos but from what I saw through the lcd display on the camera the I am so glad I took up that option. Oui did contortions in the water to get the best picture composition.
Both Iain and Oui are extremely friendly and professional. If you are interested in a diving off the south coast of Phuket I would recommend Sharkeys.
