Owner description: VINADIVING is established in 1997 with its original name Orca Diving Club, becoming one of the first dive centers in Vietnam. In 2003 our name was changed to Vinadive making it one of the most successful dive club in Nha Trang. In 2013, the club has its new brand VINADIVING for a new vision of development. VINADIVING is now 10 year member of PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors), one of the most active member of SSI (Scuba School International), but also a member of Viet Nam Underwater Sport Association.

I got my Open Water Diver certificate at this shop. It was a good deal (only VND 3M, which was slightly over $150 in 2010, including accommodation). The teaching was not rigorous; after the course, I'd hardly be able to dive by myself including setting up equipment & buoyancy, etc, but if I'd been to continue diving in Vietnam only then that would have been good enough as dive services in Vietnam were very good: boat staff would set up equipment and dive groups were not so big and dive masters would take care of divers well. Dive sites in Vietnam were not demanding either.

I dove with them another time. The guide was fantastic, He knew the critters & was very playful underwater. I had a truly fun dive despite the sites were just mediocre.

Among all dive operators, in Vietnam or overseas, these guys offered the best lunch. Vietnamese food, freshly cooked on boat. I however saw some foreign divers couldn't enjoy the food because they didn't like Vietnamese food.

Their rates were competitive.

All staff's local.
Don't expect them to be very professional. Sometimes I could enjoy locals' generosity, sometimes I suffered from their lack of understanding of what it was to be professional. But this was not a problem unique to them but to all other local staff at dive operators in Nha Trang.

My OWD course was in 2010
The second time I dove with them was 2011.
Quite a long time ago so it might not be relevant. But I still very much wanted to write something for them.

My BF and I had our first dive in Nha Trang with Vinadiving. It was quite short, but worth it. The CD with pictures that they sold us was expensive (20 USD). We had a good experience overall.

I took a dive from this diving club. Their guides was so helpful and funny. We had a hot lunch on the boat and I met my countryman here. He's a PADI instructor of the club.
