With out any doubt, Con Dao can boast to have “the best diving in Vietnam”. Come and see for yourself all that Vietnam’s premier Marine Park has to offer.
“The Poulo Condore”
Our dive boat is a 17 meter, converted traditional Vietnamese fishing boat. With heaps of character, she was designed to handle the roughest of storms that the seas could throw at it! She is named “The Poulo Condore”, the name of the island during the French Indochina era. Designed by our experienced instructors, she has all the “mod-cons” to ensure this is one of the most comfortable and safe dive boats in Vietnam, with a fully roofed over area, a sunny area if you want to catch some rays, cooking facilities, toilet, fresh water shower, a safe and comfortable non-slip ladder and of course all emergency, first aid equipment and O2.
Daily Dive Trips & Snorkeling
Con Dao has 25 dive sites to choose from. Over the past 3 years the team at Senses Diving, have explored all of the many islands and reefs that the archipelago has to offer, & can always recommend the best places to dive during your stay. Sometimes the weather, or the time of year you are visiting, can determine which dive sites we visit. Or maybe you are here for a multiple dive trip vacation and wish to see more of what the island has to offer. Contact us for more information about the best dive sites to visit, at which time of year. Our prices are all one rate to all islands. Con Dao Dive Sites offer depths of up to 21+ meters, for recreational divers and shallow areas for snorkelers and beginners. We run a daily two dive trip for divers and snorkelers, departing the harbour at 9am. Journey time to the numerous dive sites ranges from 45mins to 1hr 20 mins. We also offer multiple dive trips and trips from our private speedboat. We can customise any aspect of your dive trip to suit – contact us for more information.
The high season for diving in Con Dao is from April through to September. During this time (July, August and September) Con Dao experiences the rainy season, though these are not long monsoons, just spells of heavy rain for around an hour, usually in the afternoon and evenings. The low season for diving is from November to February, due to high winds, though on many occasions there are spells of weather good enough to dive. More often than not, with so many dive sites to choose from, there is a sheltered spot to enjoy the diving.
