We did a total of 8 dives through Merlin divers, 6 of which was on the big boat to the Phi Phi Islands and the Racha Islands. Robert, the owner, was always keen to assist you with any questions and queries and asks fair prices for the half-day and day trips. We had such a lovely time with the dive... More

Very impressed with Robert and all the Merlin team. Helpful, very capable and made the trips very enjoyable. Ollie got his PADI whilst I had a refresher followed by two very enjoyable dives. Would highly recommend and we will certainly use them again on future trips back to Phuket.

It was very easy to communicate with them in English even though I don't speak well. My wife and I will definitely visit this center again when we go back... More

Me and my boyfriend did our Internship for Divemaster at Merlin Divers. This course takes 3 months and in the end you get your certification. We spent a wonderful time in Kamala Beach as well as at Merlin Divers. Next to us a couple of other Divemaster Trainees worked with us together and we felt like a small family! Not... More
