My 14 year old son and I just finished three days of diving with Oui of Sharkey Scuba. Initially I selected Sharkey Scuba due to a recommendation by a friend - a recommendation I am very grateful for (Thank you Claus!). Booking the three day trip (9 dives total for each of us) was quick and easy. Sharkey Scuba gave... More

We are so happy we learned diving from Oui. She was a great teacher: friendly, calm, funny, easy-going, enthusiastic and a warm personality. She explained everything very good in a calm and clear way. Her enthousiasme was immense and contagious, we had such a great time. We did the PADI scuba diver, but are already planning to do the open... More

Went with sharkey for the second time and wasn't disappointed, greatest dive ever. The instructors are very good and ensure you get a great and safe experience. Went to phi phi and shark tip, can fully recommend it! So if you go diving in phuket you have to choose sharkey scuba.

I chose Iain and Oui (owner-operators of Sharkey) over the many other dive instructors and schools in Phuket based on their excellent reviews and I was not disappointed. I took the PADI Open Water referral course which was two full days out on the boat with the option for two or three dives per day. You only need four dives... More

Iain and Oui (the owners) are amazing. We did our PADI Open Water with them in January 2016, went diving with them again in February 2016 and just got back from doing our Advanced Open Water with them last weekend. They are both so patient and like to take the diving nice and easy, which as a rookie for our... More

To see anemone fish(also know as Nemo or clown fish) underwater. My first times diving in Southeast Asia after many dives in the Caribbean, was a wonderful delight of new flora and fauna. The viz wasn't as great as some other places but the colors, variety and volume of fish was an amazing delight especially on guided dive with the... More

I took the Padi Open Water Course with Sharkey Scuba and I cannot recommend it enough. Oui was with me the first two days and was very patient and helpful. This was my first time diving and she was very supportive. After some pool time and going through all the base skills, we went to the islands the next day.... More

I recently dived through Sharkey again, having not been underwater for a while. They took excellent care of me on both trips, and recommended the right sites. Diving with Iain and Oui was good fun, and it was lovely being able to so easily manage the trips on short notice.

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
