Owner description: Sharkey Scuba is a 100% legal PADI dive center in Karon, Phuket. We are complete diving fanatics as our guests will testify! Started in 2002, the owners, Oui and Iain alone, have been teaching and guiding in Phuket for 30 years between us. We were the first company in Phuket to exclusively offer private scuba diving courses from complete beginner to professional level. We also arrange day trips and Thailand liveaboards. Every guest is very important to us which is why we offer a highly personalised service including hotel visits and after dive events. Wherever you are staying in Phuket we can help with free transfers for dive trips from all of the following towns: Karon, Patong, Kata, Kamala and Chalong. Dive courses, day trips, Similans liveaboards - just ask and we will help.

I had such an amazing time with Sharkey Scuba in Phuket! I travelled all the way from England to Thailand, based on an amazing review I got from a friend. They were not wrong. Sharkey Scuba organized everything for me, even down to pick up from and to the airport, hotel and tips on good places to eat nearby.
I am extremly gratefull for their amazing customer service. I had the time of my life, qualified as a PADI Open Water Diver. I would definaitly go back!
Thanks guys!

We contacted Ian and Oui through their website and from the first moment we were very pleased with their can do approach to all of our requests. They trained both of our sons (15 and 11) to be PADI Open Water Divers and all elements of the training were excellent. The process was simple and very effective.

Dan and Josh loved their time spent training with Oui and her infectious attitude and obvious love of diving has now rubbed off on them.

Thanks Ian and Oui and all at Sharkey Scuba.

Thank you so much for your kind review. It was a real pleasure to teach your sons and their friend to dive. I am glad that my enthusiasm was noticed and also that your sons were as enthusiastic about the diving as I was. We certainly hope to get the chance to dive with them again in the future.
