This was my second time diving with Iain and Oui, the husband and wife team that are Sharkey Scuba. I couldn't fault my experience last time and returning to dive with them again was an easy choice. I went for the single day Discover Scuba course at Racha Noi/Yai Islands, exactly the same choice as last time. It was like... More

I was originally going to just snorkel but decided to go on the Discover Scuba Diving program with Sharkey Scuba. It is an all day trip. What an exhilarating experience! 3 dives total off of Racha Noi/Yai islands. 1st dive was more for training and to acclimate. May sound intimidating with no experience, but I was in great hands. My... More

Iain and his wife run the most personalized and professional scuba diving service in all of Phuket. My friend and I did the 2 day course with Iain and I couldn't have had a better experience. He makes sure to spend extra time with those having trouble and gives lots of praise when things go well!! If you want to... More

From responding to our first inquiries to dropping us off the last day at our hotel, interacting with Sharkey Scuba was less like dealing with a business and more like dealing with friends. Iain is extremely responsive to emails and the booking process was smooth and easy. The dive boats support several diving operations and although we only dove with... More

We went scuba diving in Phuket and were amazed by how enthusiastic and accommodating they were. We would definitely recommend Sharkey Scuba to anyone wanting to dive in Phuket. The day was very relaxing, Iain and Oui set up all the equipment and ensured we had a great time!

Iain and Oui are two amazing people that are still truely passionate about their diving, even after all those years. I completed my Advanced Open Water Course with them and all I had to do was respond to emails, everything else was arranged for me. The instruction sessions were clear and easy to follow. The dives were amazing. Thanks Iain... More

This was the second time we have booked diving with Sharkey Scuba and once again we were mightily impressed with all aspects of the Sharkey operation. This was also a special occasion for us, as in addition to catering for my own diving I was keen for my 11 year old son, who has ASD to experience the joys of... More
