About Vietnam

As the Republic of Vietnam grows more and more as a tourist favorite destination in South East Asia, its shore line is home of some good dive sites in Nha Thrang and off to the island of Mun also known as Hon Mun.

The nearly 41/2 mile (7km) long, palm-lined sandy beach makes Nha Trang one of Vietnam's most popular destinations for Vietnamese and foreigners alike, and there are regular flights from Saigon, Hanoi & Da Nang as well as daily rail, bus and minibus services.

Nha Trang to the stunning nearby islands and offer the BEST diving in The South China Sea. The majority of the dive sites are within a 1 hour boat ride of Nha Trang. Fish life includes some rare species such as frogfish, paperfish, devil scorpionfish, dragonettes, flying gunard, and cowfish.

Whale Island, north of Nha Trang offers diving for beginners and experienced alike. There is safe & simple diving from the beach to a maximum depth of 50 ft. (15 m). Or a boat dive that offers more exciting & adventurous diving; wall dives down to 130 ft. (40 m), coral gardens at 30 - 50 ft. (10-15 m), racing drift dives, or just exploring the reefs. Whales, sharks & whale sharks are regularly seen, as are rays and some pelagics.

A new, and virgin diving area, Phu Quoc Island is off the SW coast. It is similar to the rest of Vietnam whereby there are not schools of large pelagics, Mantas or Sharks. However the hard & soft corals here are pristine and the mass of small islands to the south of Phu Quoc are home to a huge variety of small colourful reef/coral fish, many of them endemic to the Vietnamese waters. The mysterious Dugong (manatee) has even been sighted here!

Climate: Warm and tropical - Daily Temps: 78 - 100F (26-38c)
Water Temperature: 71F - 86F (22c and 30c)
Visibility: 30 - 100+ ft (10 to 30+ m)
