We are the first Scuba Diving Company located on Con Son Island. We are a Western owned and operated company assuring you the highest quality, personalized attention and safety available in Vietnam. We are fortunate to be located on an island with the best year round diving in all of Vietnam. We are a small company and we want you to feel at home in our shop and on our boat.
Currently there are three flights a day on weekdays and five on weekends from Saigon, and an overnight boat from Vung Tau. The planes are often booked months in advance, if you encounter difficulties getting a ticket, let us know. We have sources…..
Your absolute satisfaction is our goal. We are not a cookie cutter operation and if you choose to train with us, we will strive to give you the best learning experience we can provide. We are not interested in how many divers we certify, but the quality of the divers we certify.
Within the bounds of the Marine Conservation area we can dive on 16 different islands, with many different types of dive sites suitable for divers of all levels. We will gladly cater to any special requests you may have to make your stay in the Con Dao Islands more interesting and fun, from multiday dive trips with camping on deserted islands to fantastic night dives.
We provide daily dive trips from our purpose built 15 X 4.2 meter dive boat.
We offer a variety of courses from basic open water certification through Dive Control Specialist and Dive Master.
We also have for rent dive and snorkeling gear, as there is some shore diving and very nice snorkeling all around the island.
Con Dao is a relatively new tourism destination and as such is not as developed as the more well known Phu Quoc Island.
We have recently discovered the only divable wrecks in Vietnam, including the only one large enough to be penetrated. Bring your BP/W or side mounts, and be among the first people to penetrate the engine room...we plan to go that far in June of 2011 !
If you are taking the flight anyway, we strongly urge you to visit Con Dao. Having lived in Vietnam for 21 years we feel it is one of the few places in Vietnam that remain unspoiled and undamaged by the frantic pace of development that has over whelmed the rest of the country. With a population of just 5,500, the island is clean and quiet; there is an abundance of dive sites. By way of comparison, Phu Quoc offers shallow water, limited visibility, limited dive season, vastly more pollution and is showing signs of overdevelopment. Current prices for flights range from $60 - $100 return. Please do book far in advance as the fights generally fill up quickly.
New hotels are opening all the time from $15 per night. We have been working with and reccomend Con Dao Camping with bungalows on the beach 2 double beds, A.C., hot water, television from $30 a night.
