Nha Trang

Diving around Nha Trang takes place in one of three locations. Hon Mun Marine Park, 5 miles (8 kilometers) east of Nha Trang, features pinnacles that slide from the surface down to 150 feet (50 meters). Macro and reef life is healthy here. Alternatively, Moray Beach, with its shallow sandy bottom, is great for training dives and, of course, for spotting moray eels.Further north, Whale Island offers some of the most diverse marine life in the area. Seahorses, frogfish and stone fish can be found hiding among the numerous pinnacles surrounding the island. Eagle rays and stingrays can also be encountered in the deeper areas of these dive sites. Closer to Nha Trang, visitors can dive up to 50 feet (16 meters) down from the beach. The beautiful scenery yields interesting encounters with cuttlefish, octopus and lion fish.In Nha Trang, diving is cheap and straightforward. Getting an open water or advanced certificate here is a great idea. Not only will it be easy on the wallet, but also a stress-free experience with interesting marine life to keep you entertained.

Nha Trang Sea Life

Unfortunately, marine life in Nha Trang is a bit lacking. Most diving here is done for perfecting dive skills and furthering experience. With that said, there are some quirky creatures and the occasional pelagic species that inhabit the tropical waters off Vietnam’s south central coast.Along with 350 species of hard and soft coral, scorpionfish, cuttlefish, lionfish, clown fish, frogfish, moray eels, parrot fish, needlefish, paperfish, rockfish and trumpet fish are common. Seahorses and nudibranchs add a macro element.On the bigger side of things, octopus, travelly, tuna, barracuda and grouper are sometimes visitors to the area. On a rare occasion, stingrays and eagle rays can be seen.Perhaps your logs won’t be full after a dive in Nha Trang, but they certainly won’t be empty either. It’s time to stop worry about seeing something and start enjoying the relaxing benefits of scuba diving.

How To Get There

Tan Son Nhat International Airport (Ho Chi Minh; SGN) is well served by flights originating in North America, Australia and Europe. Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi is an alternative entry point. However, Nha Trang is significantly further from Hanoi than from Ho Chi Minh City.Once you have arrived in Vietnam, local flights are available via Jetstar Pacific and Vietnam Airlines into Nha Trang Airport. Trains and buses also travel between Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang.
