Started in 2002, the owners, Oui and Iain alone, have been teaching and guiding in Phuket for over 20 years between us.

Our diving adventure started with a great personal training (video based, but Iain personally stopped by to answer questions), a pick-up that was perfectly on time, and a friendly welcome by Oui at the pier. My wife and one of my daughters found it difficult to equalize and adjust to the pressure when diving so Oui took them to a... More

After an excellent training day, my wife and I enjoyed 2 days with Oui out at Racca Yai, Racca Noi and Phi Phi islands. Amazing dives, expert guide/ trainer and genuine service. We felt very welcomed, safe and we will definitely be back to do further training and dive trips with Sharkey Scuba! Highly recommend 😁

I took the Open Water Diver Course and did 5 dives, 2 at Racha Yai, 2 at Phi Phi and 1 at Shark Point. All of them gorgeous! Took my course with Oui and it couldn't have been better. Since day 1 got great e-mail follow up so I was able to complete my pre-course studies without any issue. On... More

I dived with Sharkey Scuba 4 yrs ago and had an awesome time with them. This time round I contacted the company as soon as I had booked my flights to Phuket to ensure that I could dive with them again. It had been a couple of years since I last dived and I was rather rusty. I did my... More

We went out with Iain on 02/11/16 for our first ever dive. We visited two different islands for three dives. When we arrived at the boat, Iain had organised everything so we could just sit back and enjoy the journey to our first dive. We went through all the equipment and what we would be doing, which put our minds... More

This was my 4th visit to Phuket but first time diving with Sharkey, owner Iain (from UK) answered my emails promptly with comprehensive information and suggestion. We settled for a 2D1N liveaboard in Similan islands, and top up with an Advanced Open Water certificate for my gf. Owner's wife Oui (Swedish/ Thai, speak excellent English), our instructor/ dive guide, accompany... More

You have a bewildering choice of dive companies in Phuket. I happened upon Sharkey Scuba on TripAdvisor; what a piece of luck. I needed a scuba review after a few years of not getting wet and I also wanted to introduce my 13 YO girl and 15 YO boy to scuba. We chose the three dive trip to Racha Noi... More

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 am convinved that you will not find a more professional and personal service in Phuket; I arranged my dive over email with Iain who asked me questions about my dive preferences and experience etc so that we could choose the best sites for my visit also taking care of all the hire gear i required etc. On dive day...
