The Island has been associated with Scuba Diving for many years. For example, did you know that it was here on Whale Island that Jacques Cousteau first discovered his passion for diving!

Whilst the diving here on Whale Island & in Nha Trang will never compete with The Red Sea and Great Barrier Reef, we are convinced that your overall dive experience will be un-matched! We are currently trying to establish a Turtle Hatchery on the Island and, whilst it is still very much in its infancy, we are convinced of success and are considering changing the name of the resort to ‘Turtle Island’!

If you are intending taking a course during your stay and need a specific language, please announce us about this.

Property amenities:
The bamboo bungalows right on the beachfront are complete with shower & WC, and offer accommodation for up to 60 guests. Meals are served 3 times a day and are a delicious combination of traditional Vietnamese cuisine with a strong French influence. (Probably something to do with the fact that the resort is owned and run by a Frenchman called Michel together with his lovely Vietnamese wife, Lan Phuong)

Nearby attractions and activities:
The diving here is perfect for beginners and experienced alike. There is safe & simple diving from the beach to a maximum depth of 15 metres. The morning boat dives offer more exciting & adventurous diving; wall dives down to 40 metres, coral gardens at 10-15 metres, racing drift dives and of course less strenuous Nudibranch spots! Whales, sharks & whale sharks are unfortunately not so regularly seen: same for rays and big pelagics!

All PADI courses are offered here, from the introductory Discover Scuba Diving up to Instructor Courses. The Rainbow Divers Instructor Team is the most professional and highest qualified in Vietnam. Headed by English PADI Course Director Jeremy Stein and PADI Master Instructor Graham Lee (English), the team is managed on a daily basis by French PADI IDC Staff Instructor Christian Vincent who also speaks Fluent English. The rest of the team comprises Instructors and Divemasters from France, Japan, Sweden, Holland, Denmark, Germany, Australia, and America and of course Vietnam.

For 8 year olds we can offer the PADI Bubblemaker program which is a dive experience one on one with an Instructor to a maximum of 2 metres. For 10-12 year olds the PADI junior Open Water course and a couple of specialties are available, full details of courses for kids & youngsters available.

The resort is located 80 kms North of Nha Trang at the tip of an archipelago. It is absolute paradise – your own ‘desert island’ where you can really get away from it all!
