Dived many times with Merlin in 10 days, staff are friendly and helpful. The local diving boat goes everyday and they offer to wash your kit and take you back to your hotel aswell! Good price and good diving. Overall very good.

I completed my PADI open water course with Merlin Divers a few weeks ago (the first of the season). I selected them based on the many positive reviews on Tripadvisor and they didn't disappoint. From first communication through to the execution of the course everything was efficient and personal. Robert picked me up at my hotel and ran me through the initial course materials; as I was the only one doing the course I had the full attention of Paul the dive instructor and a couple other guys (dive buddies) that were training to get their dive master qualifications. We had our own boat and everything was done efficiently to make the most of your time. The local dive sites weren't spectacular but that didn't bother me as my goal was getting the qualification. It I had more time I'm sure the many day dive trips they offer would have been far more interesting. I was very happy with my selection/ experience and can highly recommend them.

I decided to complete my Advanced Open Water in Phuket, i reviewed many dive shops on Trip Advisor and settled on the one with the best reviews. There is a good reason Merlin Divers are #1 on Trip Advisor, they definitely know the industry and make it a great experience. We spent the first day at Rachya Yai doing our Nav and PPB dives, then the 2nd day we headed out to Koh Dok Mai, Kingcruiser and Shark Point. We completed our Deep, Wreck and Multilevel respectively. The whole day is as easy as it gets, picked up and dropped off from where we were staying, lunch and a very experienced instructor in Paul. Thanks for the diving!

Having done my advanced divers with Paul last year it was great robe in Phuket and of course I dived with Merlin. Neung was great as a dive master and certainly kept up the standard set by Paul last year. I would highly recommend Merlin divers for the professionalism and attention to detail. Thanks a lot everyone
