Sharkey Scuba Phuket Newsletter 2009, no. 1

Coming Soon

As we continue to improve our range of services and also provide further useful advice we intend to continue to add additional information over the coming months. Details are given in the sections below.


Although we will continue to promote Baan Suay guesthouse in Karon as a convenient and good value for money place to stay, we are aware that some people would prefer something either in closer proximity to the beach, with a wider range of hotel facilities or in a location outside of Karon. Therefore, we are intending to offer additional accommodation options for the 2009/10 season. We will shortly be adding a dedicated accommodation section to the web site with six recommended hotel options for each of the Kata, Karon and Patong areas. Options will range from two to five star. All options are based on our own local investigations, word of mouth on the street and customer experiences. As with the liveaboards these are our top recommendations so if you have any preferred options then let us know and we will come back with a competitive rate. Also, expect the list to change as standards change.

Liveaboard Search Engine

Work is still on going for the liveaboard search engine. We are very much hoping to get this implemented by beginning of June to enable you to search for specific dates for liveaboards in a similar way to when searching for flights.

More Liveaboard Info

In order to provide more extensive liveaboard info we will soon be making the following changes:

Phuket Non-Diving Options

In response to customer demand we will soon be adding a dedicated menu to non-diving options. This will include the most popular and best quality options that our customers have experienced over the years and will include offerings such as the Phuket Fantasea show, John Gray Sea Canoe and various safari trips. All options will be able to be booked through us in advance using our normal payment methods and with no additional fees for card payments.
