Stayed at the Marriott at merlin beach and booked two days boat diving with Daniel who has a wealth of knowledge . Sea bees provided an excellent service from being picked up from the hotel to the dive centre and throughout the day on the dive boat. Excellent guides on the boat (Cristinen and Rafaela). Dive group was excellent as both days I was in a group of 3 other people. Would highly recommend this operation as very provisional and took care of everyone and not treated people as just a number.

Today I dove again with Seabees and had Fabio as my dive guide. From the time I showed up to the dive shop in the morning until I left everything was first class! All the employees are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, the boat is very big and comfortable and all the meals serve were delicious. Fabio took the time and explained each of the dives before and after. I couldn’t of been happier with the service he gave. I’m looking forward to my next dive with these folks again!

I stayed at Marriot Merlin beach for 3 days with my 1yr old baby and parents. Although I've been a certified diver for many years with over 150+ dives, I was never expected to go for a diving on this trip since my little baby cannot leave me for long. I was almost thrilled when seeing the sign of Sea Bees offering house reef diving. What impressed me more is the professionalism and passion of Daniel to diving. Unlike lots of the so-called diver instructors in Thailand, Daniel is absolutely a hidden gem. I've been away from diving for more than 2 years. Daniel helped me refreshing my memories and pointed out lots of important details we should pay attention when assembling the equipment. The dive under the sea is easy and pleasant as well. After a short swimming from the shore of the hotel's private beach, we reached the drop off point. Lots of hard corals and good reserve of the marine life. Super good visibility without any currents due to the fact that it's hide in the bay. The highlight of the trip is a big cuttle fish couple at the end of the diving. And for the longest record of my whole dive history, we managed to dive for 83 mins! Thanks to Daniel's good guidance as well as the shallow and easy dive environment. Highly recommended to all friends what want to try discover scuba diving, take diving courses in Thailand or experienced divers who want to enjoy the diving while kids are under good supervision by the hotel.

We were staying at the Marriott Resort at Merlin Beach. I could see that the corals at the beach was beautiful just from snorkelling - look for the bamboo sharks! Walk into the tide pools during sunset (must do!). Since the Sea Bees diving center at Marriott provides an introductory diving experience for total newbies like me, I decided to try my hand at diving. This is not a certification course but just a taster dive. I had a great instructor, Daniel, German dude who absolutely loves his work and knows his stuff. Felt completely safe in his hands. The dive took approximately 3hours in total. We just walked out to the beach and swam out. I was lucky to have a 1:1 experience with the instructor (max is 2:1). We spent approx 1.5 hrs going thru the basics in the pool where you’ll be taught how to handle the gears, buoyancy, cleaning your goggles and signalling/communicating (thumbs up means going up not OK). Daniel was patient and ensured that I was comfortable. He is experienced enough to tell if you’re having trouble. The dive itself was amazing! We spent approx. 70min in the water and dived to around 8m depth. Don’t worry if you’re wearing contact lens. I had mine on and had no issues at all. I felt completely safe. The instructor checked on me every few minutes. Beautiful corals and sea life. Good job on the conservation and hope the good work continues!👍🏻

I had a great introductory dive today with Sea Bees Diving, Phuket. My instructor, Janne, took his time to explain the basics of diving, and kept a close eye on my wellbeing in the water. I was eager to practice some skills including removing water from my goggles, clearing the regulator of water, and releasing and retrieving the regulator. Janne showed me the hand signals for each of these skills so that I was well prepared once below the surface. The dive itself was excellent: I saw more species of fish than I could have hoped for. Additionally, Janne guided me above the coral, keeping a close eye on my depth, whilst challenging me to assume the correct posture and level. I learnt a lot, quickly. I'd highly recommend Sea Bees Diving Phuket. I had a wonderful experience with a passionate and astute instructor.
