Did our divers open water license in January 2010 with Ludo Hamel. Had a great time. Good focus on safety and learning. Ludo gave us loads of attention and was a great instructor. I would recommend.

Being a diving instructor for 18 years, the first ever dive trip in Vietnam surprise me. Coco dive center is small. Staff are warm and ok. However the gears are all aged. The package of US$65 for 3 dives is cheap, as compare to those US$85 for 2 dives. Have to mention, the package have to include all diving equipment, with no discount if you bring your own. I am lucky because I only need a BCD and bare-foot fins. The dive boat, I think should be chartered from local fishing boat, are not prepare for proper diving purpose. Due to bad weather, the boat roll as roller coaster. All the stuff falling down but the crew just sit inside the cabin without any help. The floor is slippy and water supply for shower is...limited and very slow.

Coco Dive Centre disappointed me in many ways. Having already obtained my Open Water Diving Licence in Australia 18 months before, I booked in for an Advanced 30m dive and a refresher course. As lovely as the owner and dive instructor Xuan is, there were many things that were briefly skimmed over or completely left out in my refresher course, such as buddy checks, ensuring we surfaced with at least 50 bar, ill-fitting or torn wetsuits and other safety precautions. The Advanced course was even worse, and even though I obtained my advanced certificate with no injuries, I was not happy with the course. Having had a flawless Open Water course in Australia I knew what the standards should be, and they were not met by any means. On completion of the course, I was assured that my licence would be sent to my home address and details uploaded to the SSI database. It has been two months and I have still received neither, which means I will have to do the advanced course again somewhere else. I was overcharged by Coco to which they replied but did not refund, and it has been days since I last contacted them to no response. Very, very unhappy with this company.

The lovely and smart owner Xuan made us feel so welcome and told us already so much about underwaterlife and fishes we could see, that we decided to book 2 fun dives at Coco Dive Center. My boyfriend and me are beginners and weren´t diving for 2 years, so I was a little bit afraid of breathing under water for the first time. When we told lady Xuan, she offered us to get an instructor for our own and a small refresher unit at the first dive site for free. And it was amazing! We had a great Instructor - Will - only for us and he reviewed with us everything we need to know and was very nice and so caring. Although the underwaterworld is not that colourful like in Thailand, Will found a lot of amazing fishes for us, like hidden frogfishes, a pipe-and tiny little yellow boxfish and flying gurnards. We can definetely recommend Coco Dive Center and Will! :)
