The service provided by the company and the family on the island were great. The snorkelling spots we lovely (not Great Barrier reef but interesting); loads of star fish everywhere. The food provided on the island was superb. When I signed up for the overnight trip I thought there would be other people staying on the island; unfortunately there weren't. This is obviously not the fault of the Dive centre but it was a little bit more isolated and remote than I was expecting... I'd recommend checking if anyone else is staying! Having said that, a completely empty beach all to yourself as the sun is coming up is worth the lack of sleep the night before (almost!)

I think there are other dive trips out of Hoi An but this is the one that uses the big local wooden boats so the crossing to the island is spacious and comfortable. There are free snacks, coffee, tea and fruit on board because after swimming you can get hungry. We were given a wet suit and all the gear for snorkelling or diving. We snorkelled and one of the dive masters was with us the whole time in the water. He was like a mother duck with his ducklings, keeping an eye on all of us. Very reassuring. Anchored at two different dive locations then went to the beach where a wonderful banquet was laid on for lunch. There was time after lunch to laze in a hammock, snorkel from the beach or climb the rocks before the boat headed back to harbour. We when to Cham Island a second time with the same group and did a home stay in the fishing village. Thanks to GO TRAVEL Hoi An for organizing everything for us.

Good trip with this diving center (snorkeling). It is a bit more expensive but that pays of. Two diving/snorkeling places where there are no other tourists. A nice lunch at a beach where are no other tourists either. Equipment was good.

Well organised operation and friendly staff. Half price compared to resort organised tours. Toilet on the boat was hideous and the facilities in the Island Only slightly better. The instructors were great especially Dino who was very enthusiastic and friendly and gave a good briefing.He showed us two great sites even though the visibility was not the best at this time of the year. Dino also gave us some great tips on local eating. The equipment supplied was ok although my BCD had a leak so make sure you check before going into the water. Good operation. Would use them again if I come back.
