As the Republic of Vietnam grows more and more as a tourist favorite destination in South East Asia, its shore line is home of some good dive sites in Nha Trang and off to the island of Mun also known as Hon Mun.
Situated on the north east of Ho Chi Minh City (former Saigon), and far from the murkier waters of the MeKong river delta, Nha Trang offers great Vietnamese culture, essentially based on the harvest of the sea in a very traditional way. The coast line around Nha Trang has developed through history its pure tradition of fishing techniques and it will be possible to visit some of these fishermen villages, guardian of aincient traditional fishing secrets.
Vietnam is the newest dive destination. Nha Trang offers fantastic sites: with over 350 different species of coral, also various and rich underwater life. Off Nha Trang lies the island of Mun, home of some interesting dive sites for the adventurous diver.

These are some of the dive sites in NhaTrang :

+Hon Mun :
This is the island where all dive sites already mentioned in the Nha Trang section are located. It also has a couple of other sites such as Rainbow Reef and Tiger Wall. There are some shallow spots which offer good night diving and a smaller southern island called Hon Mot with a couple of good dive sites.
There are no wrecks around the islands of Nha Trang as everything above 50 meters has been salvaged by locals.
Depth: 5 - 40m Viz: 5 - 20m Currents: Occasional Getting there : Boat 1 hour

+Moray Beach :
A shallow dive with a sandy bottom, also some bizarre rock formations here. The site gets its name from the resident giant moray eels that are upto two and a half meters long.

This site is also good for spotting pipefish, razorfish and trumpetfish with a couple of leaf fish hiding in a small cave at 3 meters.
