This a well run dive centre. The equipment looked like almost all new - very good wetsuits and BCD's /regulators. Good pre-dive safety briefings and well guided small group dives of 50+minutes with Steve, and I'm sure all the other DM's as well. Always plenty help getting you geared up pre dive, and out of the water - with the added bonus of staff doing all the hard work for you. My 2 teenage daughters completed their AOW certs in 3 days with the exellent Julie. They were high as kites at the end. A good boat and a pleasant 45min sail to and from the islands. I only give it "very good" as the actual dive sites are good, but not as good as Malaysia/Thailand. I was impressed with the variety of healthy coral and there is the usual variety of tropical fish and some macro stuff, but not the same schools and larger selection you will see in other places, and vis can be iffy. But the water is clean and there was no trash, unlike most Malaysian islands which are teeming with fish but could do with a good reef/sea bed clean up of human junk. So from pick up at your hotel to drop off at end end of the day, a good day out. And the added bonus of being in beautiful Hoi An.

We booked a diving and snorkling lessons with Blue Coral Diving.
It was simply incredible. The instructors were very professionnal managed by Steve and very friendly We had Julie (a French woman) as instructor and i can say that the diving was perfect with her. My daughter (9 years old) enjoyed her first diving lessons at Cham Island. Wonderful place for diving.
The tour included pickup and drop off at your hotel, 45 minutes by boat to Cham Island, more than 1 hour of diving, lunch at a restaurant on an island and return to Hoi An.
You won't be disappointed with Blue Coral Diving ! Memorable day. Thanks to Steve and his staff !!

My girlfriend and I dived here whilst in Hoi An and had a great experience. I was a complete novice having never dived before. They took me on 2 'Try Dives' where I was well looked after and just got to experience the reef without worrying too much about the technicalities. My girlfriend had her Open Water so went on a fun dive with a guide. She had an equally good time. Lunch was provided on an island which was tasty, and all the staff were great. The equipment was well maintained and good quality. Would definately dive with them again.

Had the pleasure of booking a day's trip to the Cham islands with blue coral diving.

The team, lead by Steven Reid, where completely professional and a lot of fun. The boat is owned by the centre and is well maintained, this level of maintanance is reflected in the quality of the actual scuda gear.

I believe that I was the only advanced padi diver aboard that day and was rewarded with a one to one fun dive with a extremely competent instructor, Vanessa. She got my pace just right, was sympathetic to sinus problem I experienced and pointed out numerous interesting forms of wildlife.

My only grip was the lunch I experienced on the island itself. The resturant had cooked all the fish and squid long before we arrived and parts of the lunch where inedible. A real shame as the lunch was billed as part of the complete package and let down the otherwise faultless dive experience.

I explain this to Steven at the time and he made a note of it. His professionality and devotion to his company are evident and I sure that anyone booking with blue coral will not be disappointed.

We weren't sure we would dive since we had our 4 year old and that meant we would each only take one dive and not together. But the staff at Blue Coral were perfectly equipped to watch our (very energetic) daughter while we took 2 dives together. From the pick-up at the hotel to drop off at the end of the day, this dive operation is making sure you are satisfied with the day out diving. The boat is large, shaded and comfortable, water and coffee/tea freely available, and equipment clean and in good condition. We went out with one divemaster/instructor and the other couple had their own! They assist you with getting suited up, doing a safety check and carefully get you into the water. They even meticulously cleaned my mask and snorkel after the dives! Lunch was a delicious spread of soup, scallops, squid salad, a BBQ fish, noodles, morning glory, and coconut cakes in banana leaf. All on a beautiful stretch of beach on the big island. There were some beautiful fish and corals despite not so great visibility (8-10m) on our dives. However, if you're looking to do some fun diving in the area and getting some beach time Blue Coral Diving is the company to go with!
