          Amazing experience
          I did my PADI Open Water Diver certification with Vietnam Active and cannot recommend them enough. Communication was really good, the transport from my accommodation to the boat and back was smooth, the food provided after the dives was great too. The best part was definitely my instructor Ty. The first two days it was just the two of us, on the final day we were joined by one more student. From the beginning Ty was very patient and explained each skill thoroughly. Throughout the course I could ask any questions I wanted and receive tips on how to improve my skills. He's a very competent diver and also a very down to earth person that made learning smooth and enjoyable. I had a great time doing the course and look forward to diving in the future!

          Vietnam Active PADI dive tours - Phu Quoc
          Yesterday I went on two fun dives for certified divers in the Southern islands off Phu Quoc Island. I had a fantastic time. The team were very professional, yet friendly and helpful. The diving instructor, Thai, was a great guide and took photos of each of us during the dive, for us to keep. The reef was very healthy with a wonderful array of corals, which is hard to find these days as many of the reefs around the world are bleached and dying - not the case in Phi Quoc! I would thoroughly recommend Vietnam Active PADI dive tours! Until the next time, all the best! Tim

          Well worth it
          Excellent trip, beautiful views and friendly staff, lunch was good too. Boats don’t have too many people on them, so plenty of room and an upstairs deck for sun bathing.

          Snorkling trip
          this tour would have received a very good 4/5 but due to the access on and off the boat for people with mobility issues i sadly have to mark it a 3/5 as my wife had difficulty getting on and also accessing the toilet on board. this should be pointed out in the accesability comments box on trip adviser site as this trip is definately not accessible to ALL. plus side our captain Bill was brilliant and fun food for lunch was also very good.

          I was pleasantly surprised by the positivity and professionalism of instructors. I am an active plus-size woman and I was a little self-conscious about trying diving, but my instructor Thinh helped me find my neutral buoyancy in a really positive and empowering way. I never felt judged, and he simply added more weight as needed and made sure I understood what my ideal weighting was for future dives/different thicknesses of wetsuit:) I was also flying solo and course was still great- I was often paired with instructor for skill tests. I am hooked! Great staff, great times!

          Enjoyableble half day snorkelling adventure
          Enjoyable experience. If you are looking for a shorter cruise and snorkelling adventure, then this is for you. We stopped at to 2 different snorkelling areas and had an hour at each. Plenty of fish to see but at the first stop, there was some rubbish, mainly plastics, floating in the water. The boat ride to the first bay took about 45 minutes, and the return journey from the other bay was less than this. When we anchored, with another boat, it did get rough, so if you suffer from sea sickness, you may want to take something for this. The crew did offer sea sick tablets at the start of the journey. Whilst travelling, it was not rough and very relaxing. The lunch is provided on board. Soup, bahn mi, rice paper rolls, BBQ pork, rice, salad, and fruit. Cater for veg. Be aware that once you are on board, you stay on board until you return to the jetty. You do not get off to land when reaching the island. You can get changed on the boat but the toilet is very small. Enjoy the experience!

          Please I did it after reservations
          I was initially quite worried about doing this as I’m a bit disabled but with a bit of help I enjoyed snorkelling on 2 reefs .The fist was better due to visibility The lunch was nice as well

          Strongly recommended diving with Leia!
          More than just diving. Half day’s immersion in dive world. Super safe and professional service, good lunch and what’s the most important - Princess Leia who I can strongly recommend as an instructor.

          Diving in Nha Trang
          It was a good moment with Vietnam active and I loved the boat we stayed on. Instructors and equipment are great. I was just so sad to see, in the first sport we dived, that everything is dead..

          The dives were fun, we saw a lot of small sea live and corals. Thai, my instructor, was fun, friendly and helpful. Thai, Leia (another instructor) and some of the fun divers engaged in really interesting conversations about dives and fishes, they know a lot! Highly recommended!

          I had a really nice dive with VietnamActive. We were just a group out of 2 plus the dive guide. I felt very comfortable and had a good time.

        My husband and I had an absolutely INCREDIBLY 2 days out with Vietnam Active! Everything with their team went very smoothly and effortlessly. Our inquiry emails that we sent to find out more information were replied to very quickly (thank you Jens), and they were able to answer all of our questions.
        Hotel pick up and drop off were provided, with clean and spacious transportation. The lunch they offered had a good selection (we went 2 days and the lunch was the same, bring some snacks if you want a bit of variety).
        The absolute best part of this company is their staff. I am a nervous diver, and their staff guided me, never rushed me, and made me feel safe and well taken care of.

        On the first day, we did 2 dives. Visibility was ok, we got to see a variety of fish and marine life. On the second day, we went snorkeling. Our scuba dive helped us capture amazing photos and videos that we love.

        The only downside was that on both days at the first stop, there was a party boat that was parked very near our boat. They were blasting incredibly loud and annoying party music (bear in mind this is around 10am), with people shouting really loudly into the microphone, chanting, screaming. It took away from the calm and peaceful experience of being surrounded by nature. When we were diving it was fine, since we couldn't hear the music when underwater. But for snorkeling, you could literally hear the music as you snorkeled, which was not enjoyable. Not Vietnam Active's fault, but maybe the boat could go somewhere else to avoid this party boat. If we had wanted party boat loud music and shouting vibes, we would have booked one of those instead, but that was definitely not what we wanted.

        All in all, we had a great time and we are looking forward to our next visit.

        Had a great time and saw some cool stuff. I hadn’t scuba dived in over 10 years so was slightly nervous about remembering everything but my guide loit was great, a super friendly guy who ran through all the saftey things I’d learned years ago but forgotten and showed us some great spots. Overall a really enjoyable and well run trip

        What an amazing scuba diving experience! Today morning we drove to the south of Phu Quoc island and got on a boat. After a one hour boat trip we arrived at the first diving sight. I did not have any previous experience in suba diving and therefore my guide gave explained the equipment and the process thoroughly. I felt ready to step into the water afterwards. We dove for about 40min on our first dive. Everything went smooth and i was amazed floating in the underwater world. Second dive was even longer, around 45mins! After the second one we had lunch on the boat, very delicious! That has been one of the best tours i ever booked in Vietnam! I highly recommend.

        Excellent experience!
        Can't thank Mike and the crew enough!

        Mike was a fantastic instructor, especially for me as I had trouble relaxing being a first time diver. He was patient and very experienced.

        Can't not recommend highly enough! If you never dived DO IT especially with this group.

        VERY professional and we'll setup, you won't regret it!

        We had a discovery dive for my 14yrs old. I'm aowd but I tagged along with my son and divemaster Mike. We had 2 dives in safe but yet interesting locations with lots of fish, corals and that kind of stuff.
        Mike gave us a good time, showed nice marine life and gave us a great experience. All the staff members were helpful and friendly.
        I would warmly recommend to anyone interested in scuba diving.

        Superb morning spent doing 2 dives. We did Discover Scuba Diving so no qualifications needed. Our guide was patient and supportive when one of group was nervous at the start. Saw lots of fish and had a nice lunch on the boat. Pick up and drop off from our hotel and it was very professionally run. Thank you!

        We had an amazing day diving with Vietnam Active, especially as a couple. The team Trinh Duc Huy were very attentive and helpful during the course, they help us with taking pictures and pretty much everything during the day. The equipment are very good quality and shape. The scenic were surprising beautiful compare with my initial thoughts. I really appreciate the team and the tour, they made our day. Definitely recommend it to my friends.

        We had a wonderful day today on the Scuba Diving Discovery Course with Vietnam Active.

        Following the booking, Jens quickly took contact with us via email to sort out all the specifics for our equipment sizes in preparation for the trip.

        We met at the dive center on the morning of the adventure (our hotel was less than a 5 minute walk away, but hotel pick up was a possibility if one was located a bit further out) and we were taken with a group of other potential divers to the pier to board our boat. Following a general safety lecture, a breakfast buffet was opened serving water, coffee and fresh fruits.

        Being comfortably settled in, we started the 45 minute journey to the marine reserve surrounding Hon Mun Island. As my partner had never dived before, and it had been around 10 years since my last dive, we were introduced to our dive instructors Sam and Duc, who in turn showed us the equipment and gave us a general overview of the day.

        Overall we had two dives, with a safety skill practice at the start and a lunch break between the dives of baguettes, various fillings, water, coffee and fruit.

        I must give big kudos to Sam and Duc for providing us with a wonderful experience, making sure that we were comfortable in the water and going at our pace- suiting our individual needs. The water was warm and crystal clear, the fish amazing to see, the environment safe and comfortable. Sam and Duc, and another dive master, Mike, made sure that our experience was special- including photos to send to friends and family. Thank you to Vietnam Active- and of course, Sam and Duc- for a truly memorable day!
