Diving


One good point of Whale Island is definitely in its underwater landscape, Vietnam starts to be a diving destination, and the diversities of coral as well as the other components of the submarine fauna, like nudibranches, contribute to the reputation of the place.


PADI instructors are waiting for you for initiations or courses or for diving on Hon Trau Nam, Hon Kho Trang, Hon Tai and in the pass of Cua Be with its angels fishes of more than 40cm, its sting rays other leopard rays etc...


The diving is practiced from January 15 to October 15.

The reputation of the archipelago justifies that we now run our own diving club.

Some reefs are accessible only with palms, masks and tubas. These sites permit to some beginners to familiarize themselves with the submarine motricity in all security for themselves and for flora and the fauna that they will be able to admire.

Hon Trau Nam or Three Kings

It is the most beautiful site. But only for experienced divers. Yellow, purple or white Gorgons, labyrinths and caves, about thirty sea slugs species. You may meet sting rays, manta rays and even whale sharks.
Hon Kho Trang

A rocky islet reached from the resort in 90 minutes, inhabited by sea birds. Two dive sites. On the first one, -20 meters dives around and inside rocks piles sheltering fishes and sea slugs. Sun lighten the bottom playing with the waves. For experienced divers. On the second one, we dive close to a 18 meters deep fall and discover a marvellous soft and hard corals garden. Tropical fishes will seduce every standard diver.

Hon Tai or Ear Island

Dive for both experienced and beginners over a coral plateau where divers can meet Nurse or white tip sharks. Look on the coral tables, black red frogfishes are laying on as well as big sized sea slugs. This site is one of the most visited.

Hon Lon

Rocks and corals in shallow water, and deep dives in day and night time, when visibility is good.

Napoleon Rock

This site is sheltered from bad weather conditions. Coral gardens are separated from each other by sandy bottom areas which allow discovery diving as well as all courses training. And you could be distracted by a napoleon wrasse school.

 

The Dry

Here is the place for experienced divers to dive in the blue or to dive around the rock at different depths to admire sea slugs and meet moray eels.

Mui Ganh

On the North part of the Large Gate. A lot of scorpion fishes like this place which can be visited by every diver standard half part of the year.

Raoul's Reef

Feather stars cover the wall, where a lot of ghost pipe fishes are hidden. This is a very good second dive with porits, acroporas corals. For all standards.

Bai Su

Labyrinths and caves at -15 meters. Photographers will enjoy shooting with macro gymnodoris along the fall, chromodoris crawling on the rocks or Spanish dancer swimming. Particularly beautiful by night. Dive for every standard.

Mui Co or Nudibranchs house

Its surname is due to the abundance of sea slugs. There are lots of big fishes passing through this area, rays, groupers and reef sharks. It's a permanent show, and you never know where to turn yourself to admire nudibranchs on the bottom or fishes over your head.

Elin's Reef

In memory of a nice Swedish instructor woman who found the site. Here is the most beautiful coral of the area and the best place for try a dive.

The Beach

Here can be effected everything from try a dive to assistant instructor course. And you will appreciate to learn over an artificially fixed coral garden.

Hon Ong Night Dive - This is a great opportunity to experience all the different animals that come out at night after hiding among the corals in the day. There are Sea Horses, Shrimps, Crabs, giant Spanish Dancer, and some beautiful Clown Fishes sleeping in their sea anemones. Depth on this is 3 to 12m and a pleasant relaxed dive.
