With 10 years+ of diving behind me and over 700 logged dives, I'd like to think I can be critical here....I'd actually find it hard though.
Everyone on board was really friendly and the equipment was all in good condition. The crew themselves were all dressed smartly....as smart as you'd want to be on a tropical island...which provides a professional feel. Three out of the four crew were French, but spoke excellent English.
Lunch was great and cooked fresh on the boat. Plenty of fresh drinking water and other drinks available to buy onboard if you want.
The briefing that I received was as good as any I've had in the past and the dive itself was well guided.
If I can gripe about anything:
- They were about 10-15 minutes late for the pick up...So what? We weren't in a rush.
- The tanks were a little on the low side of the fill, but as the diving was shallow, that wasn't really an issue and I still came back with 70-80 bar.
- I wasn't asked for my diving cert card, or to sign any indemnity, or waiver forms....To be fair, they knew I was a former instructor, so that may have been the reason.
We dived at the very beginnig of December on the North side - Turtle Island.
The diving itself was fairly average. Mostly small colourful fish, but don't dive o Phu Quoc expecting 50M vis, or large palaegics. Some great micro life, but as with a lot of Vietnam, dynamite fishing has had an effect. The highlight was the giant puffer, which was the largest I have seen.
I understand that the South of the island is better, but wasn't open to diving when we visited.
