Situated 25 nautical miles off the coast of central Quang Nam Province’s Hoi An Town, Cham Island (commonly known in Vietnamese as Cu Lao Cham) actually consists of seven islets named according to their shapes and characteristics. The scenic landscape is ideal for scuba diving, swimming and camping with a stunning array of coral and marine life. During this day, we can both introduce you to the amazing underwater world of the Cham Islands for your first scuba diving lessons (conditions apply); experienced divers are more than welcome to see the unique underwater world. If you are already impressed by the waters off the Hoi An coast, wait until you see this part of stunning Vietnam below the ocean’s surface…

We will pick you up at your hotel in Hoi An by car and transfer you to the Cua Dai port for an adventurous transfer by speedboat (shared) to Cham Island, a Marine Protected Area. A full day is dedicated to discover scuba diving at Cham Island with a PADI certified instructor. Situated 25 nautical miles off the coast of central Quang Nam Province’s Hoi An Town, Cham Island (commonly known in Vietnamese as Cu Lao Cham) is one of the main scuba and snorkeling sites in Vietnam. This will be a great time to enjoy the sea breeze and the magnificent views you can admire while sailing away far from the main land.

Upon arrival at our first dive site, you will have the chance to learn about the essence of scuba diving in a mere 2 hours before taking the plunge in the open water. Our boat will bring you to another site to see a different part of the rich marine world after your first stop. The site is a cluster of granite islands, an ideal place to find lots of coral (hard and soft coral) and ample macro life to stay amazed from descent until resurfacing.

This scenic underwater landscape is ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming and camping with a stunning array of coral and marine life. Enjoy a BBQ lunch and relax on Ong Beach at Cham Island before returning to the main land. There still will be plenty of free time available for you to enjoy the white sandy beach and crystal clear water.

In the afternoon get on the speedboat back to Hoi An, followed by your transfer back to your hotel in Hoi An. This relaxing tour’s duration will be approximately 10 hours.
