October 2023 so far goes well. We have been having diving-boat out every day. Looks like weather will be SUITABLE FOR DIVING (winds will be calm) till at least November 4th.

November to February is the low season for diving in Con Dao due to high winds from the North, high waves and poor visibility. Harbor would close and no boat can go out. If the harbor is open, then, we can get out if the condition is suitable for diving.
There are also options of Shore Dive and Night Dive during low season for experienced divers.

One of the owners, Mr. Phong will still stay in Con Dao during low season.
The other owner, Danny Coldrey, will stay in Phu Quoc island to carry out the diving there.

I can know the weather about 10 days before. It would be best to message us by whatsapp at +84 975 947 685 to get updated.
For now, I would put your names in our booking for Con Dao and let’s play it by ear.

Fantastic dives - can only recommend

We started off with 2 dives and booked another 2, simply because we loved it so much. Gordon is a fantastic instructor/ dive mate. He took the time to brief you on the different fish you might be spotting as well as telling us more about the island(s) and Vietnam in general. We as new divers could benefit from all his little tricks he taught us on the go. Communication was super easy and Gordon was also very spontaneous based on the weather. He made sure that we are getting the best experience possible by selecting the right spots. We would have gone even more if the weather allowed so. Thank you for the great experience 🙂

Great dive trip

This was one of the best things I did in Southeast Asia. The island is amazing, and I 100% will be coming back. I booked my dives very last minute, and Con Dao dive center was very prompt in their response, and got a dive scheduled right away. The gear that we used was all in really good condition. Danny was very knowledgeable, and really made it a great experience. I will definitely do it again.

No Dugongs on this trip Jun 2023

Great way to spend half a day, I would urge all to do a try dive and then get certified. There is so much under the surface, and the dive team made sure we saw things not normally seen. Did 4 dives over 2 days, and the sites are different. We came down from Hue, checking the WX before and seeing 50% chance of rain, we came prepared. But it never rained once, just beautiful days with clouds. Their operation is top notch and several of us did multiple days. No issue with the dive equipment on board, they pack it up for cleaning on the return trip. The snacks were bananas and wafer cookie, so yes, if you want, bring your own extra snacks. The Dugongs are there, so if you are lucky, you may see some. So when you go, say hi to Phong, Danny and Captain. You will be glad you went.

Excellent experience
Read More
We went in a small group of 2 divers and 4 snorkelers. Roughly 3-4 hours and 2 dive sites, one with more fish and the second with more varied coral. The snorkeling and diving were both amazing, *so much* varied coral and also lots of different kinds of tropical fish to see. Even though it had been raining the visibility was very good - Gordon postponed the trip by a day so that we would have the best experience. He provided all the equipment, bottled water, and a chocolate bar for in between dives. The boat was a covered speedboat so you’re out of the sun if you want. Gordon himself is a great guide, super helpful and relaxed. He will take payment in cash (at the time) or credit card (go to his excellent burger/pizza restaurant Bar 200 in the evening). He gave us great advice for getting around the small town of Con Son and dinner options (which were excellent)...

I have done at the Discover Diving center and dive 2 more days. It has been a real luxury to learn and dive with you in these islands. The place lends itself to it, it is spectacular. Mainly I highlight the attention, professionalism and security. Danny and Mr Phong are great with endless patience. A pleasure. I hope they open a center in Mallorca soon 😉 or I'll have to go back!

Astounding sights and instructions

I was with my family on a diving trip with the company - we were all snorkeling except for my 15 and 14 year old children who were scuba diving for the first time. Here is what they thought: The tour was amazing, and the staff as well. Our instructor, Thai, was completely fluent in English, and he was also funny. He taught us how to do sign language underwater, how to use the equipment, how to equalize pressure, and he helped us getting everything on. At our first dive we went 9,4 meters down, and there was colorful coral everywhere. A huge abundance of a large variety of fish was present, and the guide filmed it all with his GoPro. One of us had a problem with equalizing in the beginning, and the other one had a problem with water getting into his mask. The guide helped us both, and we overcame the issues. We also had a second dive to 12 meters, and it was breathtaking. All in all, we would definitely recommend the company, and it was a great experience.

Great place to get introduced to scuba!

We did their Discover Scuba package with four kids ages 10-13. Danny and Phong were amazing at giving the kids an introductory scuba experience that was safe and fun. He put them in a safe cove and took them through some amazing coral reefs. The water was so clear and the reef was full of sea life. Con Dao is a wonderful little area with great food and beaches too.

The diving staff is incredibly nice, and warm even to our accompanied shiba dog. Such an amazing experience of a life time to see these vibrant aquatic ecology under the beautiful Con Dao Island. Highly recommend, worth every second and pennies.
