    Steve, the most dive shops I have seen has been in Nha Trang. I haven't dived there so I can't comment.
    I noticed one shop that had tours and was ran by a bunch of westerners, so it maybe more reputable. It was across the road from Crazy Kim's spa and Shorty's cafe.

    We have posted some of our pics online:

    Posted from within Vietnam.

    The one accross from Kims Spa is the worst in Asia; Coco the Clown Divers! Avoid them like the plague. Unless you're a pikey backpacker and expect to pay cheap, cheap and get shit! Try Rainbow Divers or Sailors Diving. They're professional and fun!

    I don't dive but I took a snorkelling trip with the Sailing Club Divers and the rest of the boat was all divers so I got to observe. The trip was well organized and the instructors seemed excellent. Probably a little more expensive but well worth it to know you are in good hands and equipment is good.

    Their office is right next to the Sailing Club on the main strip along the beach.
