A fantastic place to complete your choice of diver training. While travelling in Thailand, a friend and I went to Phuket and chose Merlin Divers based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. I completed my open water certification while a friend completed his advanced diver training. We were able to complete our separate training on... More

I called Robert and we had a brief talk and he asked me to drop an email with few details to confirm my booking. The booking was quick and easy. I was picked from my hotel promptly on time as promised. I met Robert at his shop and he packed all the equipments as per my size. I was introduced... More

Experience on land was fantastic from start to finish. Robert was very helpful and prompt when responding to our emails and Lionel our dive instructor and Chloe and Dominic our dive masters were simply awesome and a joy to be around! Although the diving in Phuket was not so great, visibility when we went was terrible and we felt Phi... More

Since I am not so familiar with how to get around in Thailand I called Robert of Merlin Divers when I lost my way at Bangkok International Airport lately. His name was the only I could remember. I got to know him last year, he has a lot of experience with guiding people in the right direction. Lucky me. By... More

We have waited many years for our youngest (now 10) to be old enough to get dive-certified, and took the opportunity to do so during a recent trip to Phuket. Based on pr9icing and our email correspondence, we decided to go with Merlin rather than the somewhat larger operator that has more of a presence near the big Phuket hotels.... More

We recently dived at Koh Weo and on the Thin Lizzy wreck with Merlin divers. We also brought along our young daughter who wanted to do some snorkelling. This was all easily organised by Robert, and we enjoyed the diving particularly as we had both dive sites to ourselves. Our daughter was more than happy snorkelling with Chloe and all... More

I strongly recommend this dive shop for diving. I dove two half days trip near Kamala and a one day trip in Similan Island. For each dive, they prepared a whole top class and well maintained equipment for me. They are very well organized and professional. Thank you Robert & his team for those great memories.

Hadn't been diving in 30 years but in Thailand, must dive! Robert signed me up for a scuba refresher and sent me out with Susan. Only two other divers on the boat with their guide, and Susan was one on one with me. Her instruction was very clear, no mistaking anything. My descent went ok and once down at 12-14... More
