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

Although it took quite a few emails to finalise the arrangements, things were very smooth once we arrived. I dived with my 2 teenage children who had only very limited diving experience. Gordon was very patient and really looked after my daughter who was especially nervous. He is very knowledgeable about the area and marine life and it was a pleasure to dive with him. Although we were a bit unlucky with the viability, the reef was excellent and the marine life plentiful. Thanks for a good day Gordon, Phil.

We came to Con Dao to do our PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water courses. Gordon and Danny were incredible. Such patient, supportive, professional, really fun guys who made the experience so enjoyable, and they were just fabulous in every way. An excellent place to learn to dive, nice calm water, plenty to see underwater, and having Danny and Gordon guide us through our courses was awesome given all their experience and knowledge they shared with us. Thank you so much for all your help and for getting us qualified. Highly recommend Con Dao Dive Centre, they were awesome!

Excellent experience

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)...
