Diving and Snorkelling at Con Dao Island

Con Dao is Vietnams “best kept secret”. A short direct flight from Saigon this archipelago is a nature haven. It boasts the most diverse range of dive sites in Vietnam, the only diveable wreck in the country and a smorgasbord of history and nature to see on land.

Con Dao with over 20 dive sites, from simple novice dives to challenging offshore drifts and deep dives. It’s the only location in the country that you can see Pelagics, Turtles, Sharks, Rays and of course the myriad of Macro life that has made Vietnam famous.

Due to the remote location of the Island, you will be required to carry your own personal accident + Evacuation Insurance to take part in our diving activities. Information + Policies available through www.danasiapacific.org.

The prices for dive trips can vary, depending on the sites that we plan to dive. The archipelago of 16 islands offers well over 20 dive sites – and we are discovering more all the time. The weather can determine which dive sites we visit. For more information about the best dive sites to visit, at which time of year contact us.
Prices are shown in Vietnamese Dong (VND) and include, any dive equipment, marine park entries, dive guide/instructor, fresh fruits and mineral water.

All our diving is by speedboat and we specialise in small groups. Therefore we are very flexible with your holiday time. No waiting around or being rushed by other people. This is the best personalised diving available on Con Dao. No fuss no hassle. No minimum Diver limit.

A Day of Diving at Con Dao Island

1 We depart early in the morning to catch the best weather and water conditions. We will meet you at the central Pier ( 5 minute stroll from all resorts) around 7.30am. Afternoon trips from 13.30 and Night Dives at 17.30.

2 At the harbour, we will hop on the boat for a 30 minute ride to some of the best diving in Southeast Asia. Our Divemaster will introduce you to the crew and explain the particulars of the boat, after which your personal dive guide will run through your dive plan.

3 Once at the dive site, we will suit up for diving, snorkelling, or any number of courses we have available through our PADI 5-Star Course Development Centre. Enjoy the turquoise waters, the amazing marine life and incredible coral reefs.

4 Relax during your Surface Interval while we whisk you to the next exclusive dive site and prepare your equipment for Dive 2.

5 After the dives we will have you back at the mainland ready for lunch and an afternoon with friends/family. Perhaps a snooze before a night dive! Your dive team will ensure your logbooks are signed and stamped.
