Did the 2 dive discover scuba diving course. The dive instructor spoke to us for about a half hour on the boat before we reached the dive site and taught us a lot which was nice. There was 4 of us plus 2 instructors which made it a bit crowded. The four of us who were just learning kept bumping... More

Good for one day of diving if you are visiting Hoi An but I wouldn't bother diving more than that. The sites are decent but nothing exciting, fair amount of nudibranches though and one giant, giant barracuda. Diving operations were OK, gear was decent but their filter needed to be changed as the air was a bit 'tasty.' one thing... More

Just got back from a great day out to Cham Island with Karina & crew from Cham Island Divers - very well organised crew with experienced divers who know the dive sites very well. Karina was great with our teenage son who was on an "introductory dive" - loved it !!! Good boat with loads of room. Really don't need... More

We booked our teenage boys to do the 3 day open water PADI course. the whole operation is very professional but also relaxed and fun. The boys were looked after well. The boats are comfortable and the lunch food great.

A lovely snorkeling experience in terms of what you can see -different corals, starfish and fish. I thought the equipment was poor though. I am not a snorkeling expert but have done it a few times and have never been given ripped wetsuits. There weren't enough long suits for everyone or much of a choice when it came to size.... More

We first only wanted to do 2 fun-dives, but on the boat we decided to do our Advanced Open Water license. The tour was organized well and the islands were beautiful. You get dropped off at your hotel at 5pm, so think about that while planning your days :) Unfortunately our instructor Ian wasn't the most motivated one. He was... More

Divers: had the pleasure to dive with other people, who clearly did not have any certification or forgot everything they learned already ("how do I use the inflator?"). Then, no surprise, the dive center does not care about your certification - no checks were conducted. Equipment was ok, except from the slightly overused wetsuits. Snorkling: the let us snorkel with... More

We did the snorkeling tour today and had a wonderful time! Staff was very friendly and correct, they took us to 2 wonderful spots where there were plenty of fish to see. We had about 1.30h to dive or do snorkeling on each spot. Afterwards, we went to a tropical beach for lunch. We could not choose the menu but... More

Went with this company upon a recommendation from our homestay. They told us that local tours are bad and we should go with European run tours, and I think they were right. This tour company was quite professional and it was clear that our experience was probably much better than those who were crammed into small speedboats and bumping from... More
