For snorkeling, as far as I'm concerned, the Cham Diving Center is a very good choice. The crew is easygoing and gives sufficient information, the equipment is good and the day well structured between diving time (around two locations), lunch time and free time on the beach. People keep comparing the diving spots with Australia and other Asian countries, but... More

The day was good but the diving was not! We didn't get any snorkel or dive computer, we couldn't check the equipment we were using and the hole dive was just very unsafe. A lot of safety was neglected and I did not feel safe with them at all. Some of the staff was nice, the lunch was tasty but... More

Dear Hana, I notice that you also had a great day with us and thank us with insults. Just take note that Cham Island Diving Center is spending over 20,000$ a year in equipment renewal, spareparts, service kits. All our equipments are checked everyday and repaired immediately if problem is reported. Be sure that to handle 10000 dives a year... More

Our divemaster was great, the sites were good, everything else related to diving was terrible. I have been diving for 17 years all over the world and am a divemaster. This is one of the two least safe diving experiences I've encountered and until they clean up their act, I cannot recommend diving with Cham Island. First of all, certification... More

The staff was nice, the dive master was good, the boat and the food was great but the diving equipment was the worse I ever dived with. One of the women from our group had a licking of air and we needed to stop the dive and chabge. My depth meter didn't work at all.

Sorry for your depth gauge, we were out of spares, I ordered them already. About the leaking air at the other diver O.ring,, small leakages are sometime difficult to spot on the boat and more visible in the water. Be sure they are no arm for safety as the whole system is far overpressured compared to environment, so water can... More

Kids enjoyed the experience very much. Coral and fish at site 1 was excellent, great lunch and beach later in the day. They were a great team, providing a great experience.

Our time with Cham Island Diving was really wonderful start-to-finish. The crew is laid back and really helpful. They were willing to talk extensively about diving around Hoi An and diving in general. They set up all the gear for you on boat, and you don't have to clean your equipment. Be sure to double-check your gear before you go... More

The service is good, the people who take you on the trip are nice and helpful, and it’s all very relaxed. But there really isn't anything interesting to see while diving.

Hello, We're really sorry about your negative diving experience with us, but thank you for your feedback. Firstly, I'll take the opportunity to say that we are aware that the diving in Vietnam is not considered as good as some other places in Asia, Thailand for example. The diving industry here is still emerging and we have to account for... More

Fabulous day out, 2 dives followed by a great seafood lunch on Cham Island, followed by relaxing on the beach. The only downside was the actual dive disappointing as the viability was next to nothing even it there was anything worth while to see. Great Dive team who took care of everything, facilities and equipment very good.

This day came as a much needed relief from the hustle of most tourist attractions. Nobody asked me to buy anything all day! The boat was full of interesting people including the staff, and the two snorkels/swims we went on were very enjoyable. Not the best fish/coral I've seen, but defintely good and worth it! The water is also a... More
