“Brilliant diving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

We did four dives with Rainbow in Con Dao - two great trips out to the close and far islands. Good marine life - plenty of stuff to see. The instructors, Max and Gordon, really looked after us, were very knowledgeable. Good kit, decent dive boat with good crew especially Capt.Tang.

Really enjoyed it.

“Well looked after”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

We had several dives around the islands and were stunned at the pristine condition and vast variety of both hard and soft corals. Furthermore, the relatively poor vis made us concentrate on the little creatures of which there numerous types. The dive team and boat crew were easy going and extremely able plus it was refreshing not to be herded off and on the boat like sheep. They were very open about the unusual weather and did point out that the visibility in certain areas would likely be below par however the decision to dive was ours.
Cheers guys

“Fantastic diving experience in beautiful surroundings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

We completed our padi open water training on con dao and it was fantastic. The island is unspoilt beauty with only a few hotels & restaurants.

Rainbow divers were excellent. They organised our course to fit in with our travel plans & we ended up doing our confined water in the sea just off shore from our bungalow at sea travel.

Gordon was very patient and encouraging-even when equilizing took a while or our buoyancy was a little laughable! All of the dives with rainbow were off of a speed boat & meant we had a choice of fine sites in no time at all. The instructors & staff really look after you & it is a safe, professional experience.

So glad you enjoyed the course here in Con Dao, it was a pleasure to meet you. Gordon had great fun teaching you both. Keep diving and hope to see you again under the water!

“The best!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

We recently used rainbow divers to go diving on our honeymoon. My husband has been diving since he was twelve, but this was my first experience diving. I did my open water courses with them and they couldn't have made it a more positive first experience. Gordon was our dive master... He was knowledgable, fun, and most importantly, made us feel safe. We loved his company and the diving was spectacular! We can't recommend Rainbow Divers more highly!
