Why are you called Rainbow Divers?
When we were looking for suitable premises to expand in Nha Trang in 1999 we agreed with a local beach-bar complex, The Rainbow Bar, to open there.
Their condition was that we promoted their name. As a Rainbow aptly described the colourful reefs around Nha Trang, we naturally agreed: thus Rainbow Divers
What do you offer that other's don't?
There seems to be a lot of new dive associations; who should we choose?
PADI are undoubtedly the Worldwide Industry leaders. Alternative dive agencies pop up from time to time and try to copy what PADI does. Quite simply, they can’t.
They alter requirements for learning to dive and make it ‘easier’ + cheaper. Cheap + easy is NOT a good combination when learning to dive. If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you! Insist on PADI.
Rainbow Divers established the Dive industry in Vietnam in 1997 and continue to set the standards for Training + Diving.
Are your boats full of Russians or Chinese?
No. Most dive centres in Nha Trang + on Phu Quoc, focus on the Russian + Chinese customers; quantity, not quality. We do have Russian + Chinese students + divers, but they tend to be those who appreciate professional quality, rather than being herded and treated like cattle.
Are you a gay dive centre?
In the traditional sense of the word, which means fun, happy and carefree, then yes we are.
If, however, you’re asking about our sexual persuasion, then I would comment that we are a professional PADI dive centre and as such we are not interested in anyone’s religious, political or sexual preferences; if someone wants a safe + fun Diving experience, we can and will help.
If i come for an internship, can I renew my visa easily?
You can usually obtain a 1-3 month visa. You'll then need to leave the country to get anther; can be achieved in just 1 day. Check with us as regulations change so often!
Will you employ me after my internship?
Whilst we never guarantee employment after a DM or Instructor internship, we also don’t let a top professional leave us before we’ve made an offer!
Will you take me into the Ocean from your Boat for a Try-Dive? Many dive centres seem to offer this option.
It is mandatory for you to understand some basic theory and practice in shallow water (a Pool) before diving in the Ocean with your Instructor. We offer free online theory! This is for your safety and our control! Diving in the Ocean without basic knowledge and pool practice is not a good idea!
