Absolutely amazing experience with Sharkey Scuba. Having never dived before, I was extremely hesitant about the whole thing. From the moment Iain and Oui picked us up from our hotel, all of my nervousness subsided. These two were tremendous hosts and made my entire group feel safe throughout the day. They first walk you through all the equipment and general... More

I dove with Sharkey on Dec 29 and had an amazing diving experience. They are an extremely well organized and well run dive centre. Booking was super smooth and Iain was great with responding to emails and answering questions promptly. Oui was my dive master for the day and was fantastic. She is very knowledgeable, and made sure all dives... More

I spent two days diving with Sharkey Scuba - a one day refresher course (3 dives one-on-one with Oui) followed by a day of diving with Iain. The equipment was clean and in great condition - everything is extremely professional so you feel relaxed and calm with both Oui and Iain. They really cared about you getting the most from... More

An adventure I have waited 45 years to complete. One wants an exquisite memory. With Sharkey Scuba the dream was realized. Patience of both Iain and Oui, their dedication to what is their passion, their attention and commitment made it a wholesome adventure. I am now a happy chappy with my open water certificate. Thank you Oui. I have the... More

My trip to Thailand to join a friend was a bit of a last minute decision but Iain at Sharkey was excellent in his communication and coordinating my diving experience with my friends. Everything was arranged and explained with regular emails and on his recommendation I decided to go with the Discover Scuba Diving experience to get as much diving... More

After diving with a number of other schools - returning to sharkey really showed me the difference in the quality of tuition and guidance Ian and... More

My wife and I went on a scuba trip with Oui while in Thailand for our honeymoon. She was great at teaching us and letting us go at our own pace. We had no prior scuba experience but had a blast, and we really appreciated how friendly Oui was and how attentive she was to us. We booked the trip... More

Our diving adventure started with a great personal training (video based, but Iain personally stopped by to answer questions), a pick-up that was perfectly on time, and a friendly welcome by Oui at the pier. My wife and one of my daughters found it difficult to equalize and adjust to the pressure when diving so Oui took them to a... More

After an excellent training day, my wife and I enjoyed 2 days with Oui out at Racca Yai, Racca Noi and Phi Phi islands. Amazing dives, expert guide/ trainer and genuine service. We felt very welcomed, safe and we will definitely be back to do further training and dive trips with Sharkey Scuba! Highly recommend 😁
