I met Mitch, the dive centre manager at Rainbow Divers, the day before my dives. We chatted for a while and I discovered Mitch’s work had taken him all over the world before settling in Nha Trang. I asked him what he thought of the diving here “It’s nice enough,” he says before listing the amazing experiences he’s had with sharks and mantas in other exotic locations. But he told me it’s great for new divers and a cheap place to get certified.
The next day I arrived bleary eyed for our 7am bus to the harbour and met Jeremy - the owner of all five Rainbow dive shops in Vietnam who was visiting for a few days. Once settled on the boat, one of the many instructors Jack explained how things would work. There were some people completing their Open Water certificate, some trying scuba diving for the first time, some snorkelers and some fun divers. And in addition to this, some staff were receiving additional training too.
Thanks Mitch, Jeremy, Pedro and the team for making my day so good.
Have you dives Vietnam? Let me know what you thought.
