    Fantastic cooking class!! So far the best thai food we have ever made. Everything self made, even the curry paste.

    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!

    Loved the class conducted by Miss Chel! Situated at a scenic spot on a hilly area near Karon Beach, we thoroughly enjoyed cooking the various yummy Thai dishes. Miss Chel even freshly made smoothies for us and brought us to explore her mini garden. Highly recommended :)
