    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!

    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!

    It was fun to kayak and hike in the morning followed by fresh pineapple and a delicious seafood lunch. We saw monkeys and little red crabs that inhabit the waterfall.The Guide, Jam was excellent and very helpful, especially with those who were anxious hiking. Ended the day at the hotsprings and watched the sunset. Highly recommend 😀

    Came with a group from USA with Destination-Dives! Best trip ever! Great diving and Sea Fun Divers made it possible. OwnerRenee took care of every detail, and Dive guide, Ron was an amazing diver and guide. Overall, I highly recommend this company!

    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.
