Diving and snorkelling around the warm waters of Phu Quoc takes place on the the North-Western side of the island or around the small archipelago to the South. Diving is accessible all year round and the best location for diving truly depends on the prevailing conditions.
Due to the Islands proximity to the Mekong delta region peak season visibility is rarely that of the Eastern seaboard of Vietnam. However the nutritious run off from the Mekong and the constantly warm water temperatures give Phu Quoc the best hard coral growth in all of Vietnam.
A Day of Diving in Phu Quoc Island
1. Trips run on the morning to avoid the typically rougher seas in the afternoon. The day starts with hotel pick-ups between 7:30 AM and 8:00 AM if we are heading North or 6:45 AM to 7:15 AM if we are heading South. After pick-up you will be transferred to the harbour in Duong Dong.
2. Journey time to Northern dive sites takes around 1.5 hours, to the South journeys take around 2.5 hours. On board you will receive a boat brief introducing you to your PADI Professional for the day and they in turn will give you full equipment and dive or snorkel briefings for the sites we will visit.
3. Once at the dive site we will gear up for your in-water adventure; be it diving, snorkelling, or participating in any one of the PADI courses we have available through our 5 Star IDC Centre. Enjoy the best diving and snorkelling on the eastern sea-board of Vietnam.
4. During your surface interval we will move the boat to another location. During this time you can relax on the sun deck, help yourself to drinking water and/or some exotic freshly prepared fruit. During your break your equipment will be readied for your next dive by your guide. After your break jump back in to the warm waters around Phu Quoc for another adventure.
5. After diving we serve a freshly prepared lunch on the boat during your return journey. We typically return to harbour at approximately 2:30 PM from the North or 3:30 PM from the South. On the return journey your guides will help you to fill in your log books.
