I chose to dive with Mark for our vacations in Nah Trang, a man puts his name to his business means something to me. and that was the right choice.

Mark is very experienced diver and focuses on divers experience first, choosing diving spots and times as to have less divers around.

He is very serious in his diving approach, after 120 dives, I still learned a lot during his safety pre-dive briefing.

He can put inexperienced divers at ease, as well as ensure experienced ones have fun.
I strongly recommend, and will dive with Mark anytime, anywhere.

If you want to dive in Nah Trang and for whom safety, quality and the professional guidance of an English-speaking passionate dive professional is important, Mark is the best choice. He has an incredible experience and you can learn from him details that will sustainably increase your diving skills. He really makes a difference and we have never met another comparable diver. You will always feel safe with him.

Mark himself is a very pleasant companion, who knows the country and the underwater world of the area very well. Besides the diving itself we also enjoyed the conversations with him and he very well organized our trip.

If we return to Nah Trang, we will for sure dive with Mark again.

Thank you so much Mark!

Mark was so helpful from start to finish. I felt quite confident in his skills as a dive master and he was quite attentive to every detail. The sea was a bit rough due to the weather, and he was very flexible in picking the right time and place to go diving. I would highly recommend Mark Scott and plan to come again!

Very HAPPY that we where able to make a Dive in Conditions that where NOT FANTASTIC but still Very Enjoyable. I TRY to always have around 5 meters or Better Vision Underwater for Comfortable and Enjoyable Experience Scuba Diving... for all Divers but especially Beginning Divers 1st Time Discover Scuba Try Diving...Every Now and Then get Experienced Divers who are HAPPY JUST BEING UNDERWATER..So then less than 5M sometimes is BETTER than Normal Diving for Them...HAHAHA SO LETS GET WET... Thanks For Selecting ME as Your Diving BUDDY...ALOHA MARK I AM THE SEA...THE SEA IS ME..

Thoroughly recommended diving with Mark if you visit Nha Trang. He is highly experienced, having run his dive school there for many years, knows the waters really well and puts great emphasis on safety.
He is also great fun and gives a fascinating insight into life in Vietnam.

As this was my first time even in the OCEAN, we chose to go snorkeling in Nha Trang instead of diving, and with Mark helping us with proper instruction and actually getting in the water with my family, along with having shallow waters that are ideal for beginners, we loved IT.
Moray eels, butterfly fish, puffer fish, and lion fish were just a few of the beautiful marine creatures we saw.
Snorkeling was a wonderful opportunity to experience nature's beauty and learn about the underwater world. When my son is 10 years old, maybe we'll attempt scuba diving then? Thank you Mark We see your Passion of Teaching and Sharing your Experience.

Aloha My Snorkeling and Hopefully Scuba Diving in Future Friends.. YES Snorkeling is a Great way to see what is Underwater while still having the ability to just lift your head out of the water and see exactly where You are.. Often when Scuba Diving People have No Idea where they are so that is why even when certified Divers should go with Local Professional Diver to keep them Safe.. I Think that Me getting in the Water with My Snorkelers Also Provides this same SAFETY in that When needed I am there to assist People who the WATER & OCEAN are Strange to Them. I am Looking Forward to Your Return and Taking the Next Step of Doing My Discover Scuba Adventure Together.. Aloha Mark Scott

Unfortunately we weren’t able to dive due to poor viz conditions. MS were absolutely honest and didn’t simply want to take our money. Really good communication via WhatsApp. I really appreciate their honesty ( other companies will take the money no matter the conditions ). If we return we will definitely contact MS. As a plus they did recommend a good restaurant.

we are a family of 4 and diving in nha trang should be highlight of our vietnam tour. we contacted mr. Scott 1 week before we arrived to nha trang and ask for advise and price. we wanted do discover scuba diving because we have no license for diving yet. he told us it's 1 day with 2 dives for $125 per person. other company were cheaper but mr. Scott say they not good so we worry for safety and decide to go with him. we say to him very clear we have only 2 days 1 night in nha trang and we plan to go to pearl island on first day and come after to him for pay for second day diving as he requested. on the way we pass other dive center and staff outside talk to husband.they say discover scuba diving is $125 per person same mr Scott ,but it's 2 days. first day go swimming pool second day 2 time diving in ocean. after staff ask how long we in nha trang and we say only 1 day more. after go to Ho Chi Minh city. then he told us we can NOT fly after diving. very dangerous. can get compressions sick. he say very clear we can not go diving next day and evening fly. wait 18 hours minimum. we very surprised mr. Scott not tell us even he know we come diving on last day in nha trang. all family shocked and very sad. contact mr. Scott again and he just say not his mistake and not recommend to fly after dive. no say about danger. if would not talk to other maybe all of us sick now. NOT PROFESSIONAL !!! for safety he need to say because we not know. choose careful and do research first before go diving.

nha trang is supposed to be the best place for scuba diving in Vietnam so we planed to do a day dive trip for fun diving. we visited Mark Scott's dive center 3 times in the regular opening hours but it was closed every time. our hotel was far outside so it was quit an effort. after complaining about Mark Scott titled us as "stupid" and "no head"

I was on a cruise that stopped in Nha Trang, Vietnam. I arranged in advance to meet Mark to go scuba diving. However, on the morning we arranged I waited for 45 minutes and he didn't show up. Subsequently I sent Mark a note to ask what happened. He was very polite and apologetic, but he just forgot. He thought I'd send a note or phone the day before. I couldn't do this - I was on the ship then. Anyway, this wasn't our arrangement. Hasn't he heard of an appointment book? I was very disappointed to miss out on any diving on this trip because of his forgetfulness.

A couple of friends and me went scuba diving for the first time with Mark. It was a wonderful experience. Mark not only tells you what to do, he carefully explains why you must do it and makes sure you understand the reason.
I wasn’t expecting to learn so many things in just one day so I’m really glad we chose Mark to be our instructor.
We had an awesome day!
