We were picked up at the allotted time and taken 15 mins to the port. We boarded the boat with about 15-20 other people. The journey to the island was about 45 mins and during the trip the crew explained what we'd be doing on the trip. Plenty of fruit, tea, coffee and water was available on the boat. One of the guides, Jack chatted to us and asked if we'd like him to photograph us while snorkeling and he'd send us the pictures at the end of the day. The cost would be $20 so we accepted. He was great, showing us where to swim and names all the fish for us. He taught us how to free dive and took loads of photos. By the time we were back he'd sent the photos (over 100)and they were fab - so clear and colourful - definitely worth it. After the first stop we had lunch on the boat which was filled baguettes. We then went to another spot for more diving. Another great dive with loads of fish and coral. We had wondered whether to scuba dive but as it was fairly shallow we were glad we hadn't as we could see as much without the hassle of diving gear. It was a gentle trip back and then taken back to our hotel by 2.30pm. Great value for money and a great day.
Unfortunately I was the only member of my group who was snorkelling but with it came some surprisingly nice views for marine wildlife. I had done the same in Thailand which was disappointing. Here I saw lots of trumpet, needle and other types of fish. The island is much nicer and cleanee for snorkelling than the main land. Was worth the investment and would recommend.
We did the half day tour which was great. We had Sam (Englishman) as our guide and he was awesome. Nothing was a problem, he was very informative and We learnt a lot about the sea life and coral. I didn’t feel it was too touristy, boat was good, good lunch served. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Nha Trang
For the price, the tour is excellent. Not only did they pick me up from a hotel not in the city center, but our guide swam with my mom the entire time because she is not such a strong swimmer. The reefs are beautiful and the snorkeling trip is for all levels. One last thing that makes this company stand out is that the instructors pick up trash along the way--especially floating plastic bags to help clean up the reef. Next time, I'll be sure to use sunscreen that is certified safe for reefs. Make sure to do your part as well!
The boat is very nice, compare with other company's boat, they prepare chairs can to lay on the second floor of the boat, you can even jump from 2nd floor into the ocean, it was very fun, so many fishes, and is very good deal! have to try and visit this island.
