If you have never dived before you have a lot of options including beginners courses like open water courses and more advanced packages if you already have been diving before.

The coast of Vietnam is spectacular and there are several dive sites where you can get close to coral and see marine life up close and personal. As you pick up the basics you might get more adventurous with your diving and you'll be happy to know there are lots of specialized trips for you to join in Vietnam. These include travelling out into the ocean under the guidance of experienced instructors to go wreck diving, learning underwater photography skill and more.

Scuba Dive in Nha Trang


If you prefer floating to pedaling, then you should pack up that backpack and get yourself to Nha Trang. This is the main scuba destination in Vietnam and whether it’s a new qualification you’re after or just an introductory dive, there is an adventure just waiting for you. There are around 20 dive sites off Nha Trang but perhaps the best is Whale Island where between April and July you might just run in to a few whales and even some sharks who show their faces in order to chow down on the krill and plankton so abundant at that time of year.
