Scuba diving

Some of the best in Vietnam

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 4 stars

Nha Trang is one of the best scuba diving locations in Vietnam and has probably the biggest collection of dive shops. The best established is Rainbow Divers. Rainbow offers two dives for US$60.00, and the PADI Open Water course for $350. The 'Discover Scuba', which requires no certification and goes to a maximum 6 metres, is $62.50 for two dives. Rainbow also has a dive centre on Whale Island, which is 90 minutes by car and then a short boat trip. The island has beach-front bungalows which are still very wild and 'natural'. The accommodation is expensive, and the diving here too is a little pricier.

Another recommended dive shop is Sailing Club Divers. Of course, it's best to shop around the eight dive companies operating in the area to find the one that suits you best.

  • Rainbow Dive - Super Pros! 5 stars

    21st September, 2011

    I did two try dives with these guys a few days ago, and
    it was a fantastic experience. The staff puts safety first
    and made me feel really comfortable. They're positive people
    and obviously have a great working relationship with each
    other, which makes the diving fun! Good equipment, great boat,
    and good food. ^^ Highly recommended!
