Nha Trang is Vietnam’s capital of diving and the place where many travellers choose to get their first diving qualification with a 3-day Open Water Course. The shallow and calm reefs of beautiful Hon Mun Island are the perfect place for beginners!

There’s no spending time in the swimming pool as the sea here has shallow sandy areas, calm waters and perfect “pool-like” conditions! As a result, you get more efficient buoyancy training as well as more fun exploring underwater.

Nha Trang Divers is a small and reputable dive club, the primary focus of the instructional team is to create a safe and competent diver out of the guest. They use the world-recognised SSI dive training system and online learning materials to save your valuable trip time.

About the SSI Open Water Diver Course

The main focus of the course is to provide you with practical knowledge and application of the scuba diving skills with the special focus on the core diving skill – “neutral buoyancy”. Nha Trang Fun Divers team will happily help you to become a confident and knowledgeable certified diver!

You will get two training boat dives on each course day with up to sixty minutes ‘in the water’ per dive.

The 3 days of the diving course have a similar schedule…

  • 7:00 – 7:30 AM – Departure from the dive club or your hotel in central Nha Trang by free shuttle bus.
  • 7:40 AM – The dive boat will leave from the Cau Da Tourist Quay. Along the way, you will receive an appropriate pre-dive briefing as the dive boat sails onward to Mun island.
  • 9:00 – 10:30 AM – You will reach your first dive site and learn important lessons whilst getting used to your equipment in the water. After this, you can have fresh fruits back on the boat or refresh yourself with a cup of tea or coffee.
  • 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM – We will take you to the second dive site of the day. Most of the diving spots of Nha Trang are located around the shores Mun Island, so it is only a short boat ride away from the first stop.
  • 12:00 – 12:30 PM – Lunchtime! We will enjoy a multi-course Vietnamese lunch, with the option of vegetarian or vegan. The chef will prepare lunch on the boat from the daily choice of fresh groceries, so please let us know should you have any special requests and we will try to take care of it.

Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region! 

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 48 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.
