We had a fabulous day out with blue coral diving, the first scuba dive for 3 of our party of 4. The staff are all amazing and look after you from the moment you board the bus. Throughout the day they circulated with the guests checking on their well being & offering assistance in any way as well as sharing their extensive knowledge of scuba & the waters below. We were particularly impressed with Rina the intrepid Aussie and The Sheriff of Nottingham who both were excellent hosts and underwater dive partners. The team operate with the highest safety standards , ensuring everybody is comfortable with the equipment and procedure. The dive is fabulous with many tropical fish & beds of coral. I swam through a school of garfish & over forests of seaweed, it was magical. We even found Nemo. A relaxing lunch under the palms on the island was a perfect wind down before the boat trip home. Thanks again to Rina who was manning the store on Hoi an at 9.15 pm when we bought our t-shirts after a great day out.

This is the second dive trip my son, Angus,and I have done with BCD in the last 4 days. What can I say the first trip was so good we went back for another go. While the diving this trip ,due to the weather , was not as our first we still had a GREAT time.
Thanks to Vanessa and all the BCD team for great couple of days.
If you want to dive in Hoi An you would be mad not to use Blue Coral Diving

This was a great day out. We all enjoyed the boat ride and the snorkelling was fantastic. We saw lots of exotic fish and amazing coral. The lunch was good, some fish, scallops, squid and plenty of rice and noodles. (There was a veggie option if you book in advance) The crew were excellent, attentive and friendly through out and great with the kids. Would recommend it as a fun day out.

We recently used the services of Blue Coral Diving in Hoi An, for organising double dives for our party of three.

The service was great, and the dive boat and rental dive gear is in excellent condition. They also have drinks on board, as well as fruit after the dives.

The only minor issue we had was that the dive site had a lot of surge and the diving was challenging for my 13-year old son - he became seasick and could not take his second dive. Steve, the manager of the company charged him for a single dive only.

This was a brilliant gesture and very welcome, and I will definitely recommend Blue Coral Dive for any divers visiting Hoi An.

The staff is very friendly and speaks clear english (some are native speakers) which was nice for a change. Most tours we've done so far in vietnam they claim the guides speak good English, but they don't (maybe relative compared to the locals).

The pickup was right on time at the hotel. Entering the boat in the harbour we received some refreshing water melons to start with. Next following some general guidelines on the boat we set off to the first site.

The first snorkling site we had on our own, no other tour operators. The underwater views were great. The second site we had to share with 4 speedboat tour operators, all with what is seemed like local people on it. They all stayed at the same location leaving us with 80% of the site. Note we did this trip on a saturday, which could explain the crowdedness. Their loudness was a bit annoying, but putting your head underwater takes away most noise. This site was ok, better coral but less interesting fish compared to the first site.

Initially we planned to take. Speedboat tour, but now we're extremely happy we didn't. All speedboats we saw were over loaded with people. They had 1 chair and thats it untill you're in te water. Although our boat wasn't fully booked, even if there would have been enough space to wander around including a sundeck on top.

The gear they provided was great quality. All Mares equipment (mask, tube, fins) in good condition. Compared to all the speedboat operators we only saw them with mask, no tube and no fins.

1 minor downside that we didn't get 1 drink with the food during lunch. On the boat all water was free and optionally you can buy soda or beer.

We can recommend this to anyone who wants a nice day trip.
