    Great Experience, but the first timers must be cautious. It may seem easy, but it is not. Good fun for kids.

    Did our Advanced Open water with Phuket Dive Tour, had a great time and experience. Our instructor, Tim was patient and knowledgeable. The Boat we took was well equipped and the restroom facilities were clean. Food and beverage was always available in dining area.

    Will definitely go back to them again when I continue my diving certification.

    Absolutely great diving experience with Gregg for 3 days! And the new shirts are awesome! Highly recommend choosing American Divers Phuket for all your diving needs while in Thailand. I’ll definitely be diving with Gregg every trip to Thailand!

    I spent two months this year with Sharkey Scuba to complete my PADI divemaster and I could not have had a better, more instructive and more memorable experience than I had with them. Sharkey is a small and intimate family business run by Iain and Oui, which made for a very personal atmosphere. It also meant that at all times, at least one of them was with me on dives and was able to give immediate feedback afterwards (and also gush about all the beautiful marine life around Phuket).

    They are both incredibly kind, dedicated and so enthusiastic about their job, each day is thoughtfully and responsibly planned to make sure their divers have an awesome, yet safe experience. Diving with them I always felt safe and well taken care of in every respect, in and out of water. They take their time with briefings so every question is answered and they taught me so much about marine life, dive procedures and diving in general. Their experience speaks volumes in terms of safety, fun and knowledge. Diving really is their passion and you can tell from the way they go about their jobs!

    During my time with them I saw Iain and Oui work with divers of any level. Whether it is beginners or experienced divers, everyone's needs are met with such empathy. Regardless of age and whether you are doing a course or fun dives, they are awesome teachers and are always ready to share tips and give feedback to help you become a better and more confident diver. They are attentive and do their best to answer questions, ease insecurities and solve problems along the way, so their guests can enjoy themselves and have a memorable time. I never got that anonymous feeling of being just another name on a list like I had with other shops. Instead, Iain and Oui go out of their way to get to know their guests on a personal level, whether it is talks on the sun deck in between dives or grabbing dinner together after a fun day of diving.

    During my time diving with Iain and Oui almost every day, I made two incredible new friends and I am already looking forward to coming back to Sharkey Scuba. Becoming a divemaster with Iain and Oui was such a special, fun and memorable time with lessons and experiences I will cherish forever. Thank you both for being such fantastic instructors, under and above sea level!

    I went Scuba in several countries, and in different parts of Thailand, however this dive centre is my favourite so far and surely I will visit again for more fun dives in Phuket.

    This place the most professional dive centre in Phuket by far, the communication with Rachel was excellent even before I ever landed in Phuket. Rachel is one of the best teachers I ever had, she was very eager to share her knowledge in every single opportunity it raised. Her enthusiasm and care for the underwater world is contagious which really makes you appreciate more the dive sites in Phuket.

    I was so pleased with the level of professionalism that I also took my girlfriend (a non-diver) for a Scuba diver certification as I know instructors like Rachel are extremely rare to find not only in Phuket but around the world, she was detailed, calm, professional, and patient. My girlfriend was a bit scared of open water but Rachel managed to teach how to enjoy the underwater world, and even teach key techniques like neutral buoyancy on the first day!

    If you are a new diver there is no better place you can choose and I would hardly trust an instructor to teach loved ones Scuba for the first time as much as Rachel.
    The dive sits of Racha Yai and Racha Noi are perfect for first time divers.

    I felt very privileged to have the opportunity to dive in beautiful dive sites with such a great dive guide.

    Special thanks to Rachel and James.

    Had an excellent SCUBA day trip out with sea fun diverse. Very easy to schedule via email, and they had arranged the transportation round trip from my hotel (Como Point Yamu). The boat was very nice, 2 stories, multiple sun deck, and an interior galley area with air conditioning. There were about 7 dive masters for only 15 guests. Each instructor took out a small group of 2-3 people. They broke us up based on experience level, and had a group of younger teens that were learning. Mr. T was great, very helpful with all of my equipment and good with instructions. It was a very nice overall experience and very calm. Dive sights were beautiful and had great visibility. Lunch was provided and also delicious. Would highly recommend the entire experience from start to finish!

    My wife and I went on a day trip, with three refresher dives, in the Phi Phi Islands. It had been over two years since our last dive due to Covid-19. Our guide Camille did an excellent job of helping us review diving skills, briefing us on the dive sites and pointing out wildlife while underwater. We swam with a huge school of fish and spotted several sharks, amongst other aquatic life!

    This was the best dive day we’ve had yet, hands down. We highly recommend Sunrise Divers, especially if you’re newer to the sport like us.

    From the moment I stepped into the shop until when I was dropped off at my the hotel after my last diving day, I got so well taken care of to the degree that I felt a bit spoiled in the end of the experience.

    The nice woman in the shop helped me go through which options I had when it came to diving and gave me needed information what to bring with me but also what to focus on (study-wise).

    When the day had come, I got picked up at my hotel by a cab which took me to the pier where the woman from the shop waited on me together with my instructor Eamonn and introduced us. After that we headed to the boat with its crew which took us to the diving sites as well as made breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack.

    Eamonn is a great instructor who made the dives and learning really fun.

    I cannot recommend DiveAsia and my diving instructor Eamonn enough, you’ll not get disappointed and you’ll for sure have a great time.

    Did not dive with the shop directly, but they assisted me in booking a trip on the Oktavia liveaboard in the Similan islands. Steven answered all my questions & was super friendly and accommodating. I would recommend asking about the last minute deals he can offer for liveaboards!
    The boat he put me on was top notch with a wonderful crew and clean comfortable rooms. I would not hesitate to use his company again. Thanks so much!
