Being an island Phu Quoc obviously offers some dive spots that could be explored during a stay on this beautiful island. It actually offers several interesting dive spots in the northern part of the island (only to be visited between November and April) and the southern part (open all year long). So if you just need a break from sitting on the beach and exploring the underwater world, then Phu Quoc is a good option.
You will actually hear often that diving here will not be as exciting as in other dive locations, like Thailand, Philippines or Borneo. And yes, Vietnam in general cannot compete against the other location. But nonetheless it is a pleasure diving here, as long as you are happy to be underwater to enjoy the life there. If you either fall in this category or you just want to learn diving, then Phu Quoc is a good place for a relaxing dive.
Dive centre: Flipper Diving Club
This dive centre is located in Duong Dong, just a couple of minutes away from the main pier. The boat departs from here, though if the trip goes to the north you can be picked up at Mango Beach. This is certainly a good option as you do not have to ride to Duong Dong.
The dive centre is very helpful, and you can book in advance via Facebook. The equipment is also in good condition.
We visited only one dive sites – Turtle Island, though you will dive once in the north part of the tiny island, and the second dive will be to the southern part of the island. Unfortunately it seems there some limitations of dive spots, as a few days later they headed to the exact same spots when the trip to the Phu Quoc South has been cancelled.
Turtle Island North
This dive site is in the northern part of Phu Quoc. The island itself is very small, surrounded by blue water, near the shores of Phu Quoc.
