snorkelling was great
Aug. 2019
the snorkelling was great but way to short. We spend 2 hours sitting on a very crowded beach when we should have been snorkelling for longer..Lunch was good but drinks were hot. Overall it was an average day at best

Snorkelling was a waste
The whole day was unorganised and chaotic. We weren’t provided with any context or clear instructions on what was happening. Feels like we spent half the day waiting for our next transport.

We were told a speed boat was coming to take us to another location. 5 minutes later we were told this boat was no longer coming.

Beach was polluted, coral seemed mostly dead and there was minimal marine life to see.

Sea trekking is a MUST!
Originally we had only book for snorkelling, as with other reviews we managed about 10 minutes in the water before we got out due to sea lice. If you have booked this I suggest bringing a top to wear in the water.

We then additionally paid for the sea trekking it was amazing and cannot speak highly enough about doing this! It made our day.

Lunch was nice and different on a restaurant at Cham islands and had a nice amount of time to relax. Although we had finished lunch at 11:30! So didn’t eat it all as we weren’t particularly hungry.

We picked for the wooden boat, it is perfect if you want relax on the top deck and take slightly longer to get there and back. Did get transferred to lunch on a speed boat which was nice.

Jim was a great tour guide had excellent English was helpful at any point we needed him.

We felt like there should have been an extra activity as we only had 1 hour for snorkelling and then about 2 hours after lunch on the island. For the price we paid (and extras) felt like there could have been more. It says full day tour picked up early (at 7:20) and back by 3pm.

Hot beverages, great views and boat ride.
May 2019 • Friends
Not very professional, beverages not iced, did not gather us for lunch, garbage cans full at the beginning of trip. The snorkeling equipment good, the lunch menu was great and the time allotted for snorkeling was sufficient. The fact that our boat was used for other boats for scuba was confusing. But for the price we would do it again.

Great day out.
Apr. 2019 • Couples
The wooden boat to Cham Island is a leisurely trip to the snorkelling destination and a relaxing cruise there and back. We found the coral, sea life and fish fascinating, it was better than the Great Barrier Reef at Keppel Island and off Airlie Beach (Aus) where we snorkelled last sept. We could feel what were probably jelly fish spore on our skin, this didn’t bother us, you could wear leggings and a long sleeved swimming vest or a sting suit if it concerns you. Food and relaxation time was great.

Great service, mediocre snorkelling
Mar. 2019
Our tour was very well run with a great staff, good quality equipment, and incredible food at lunch. The snorkelling on our day was just mediocre. Visibility was not great and the variety of fish to see was not what we were hoping for. If you're new to snorkelling, you will see some great colourful fish and coral. If you have snorkelled the world, you will likely be disappointed. Go for the cruise and lunch.

Unfortunately the trip did not live up to our expectations.
First, the upper deck of the wooden boat was so slippery that I fell. There was no railing to hold on to. Luckily I wasn’t hurt. No warning was given beforehand.
Second, when we got to the first snorkling place my sister jumped in the sea wearing her life jacket. A string jellyfish got caught inside her life jacket and she was stung very badly. It hurt terribly. She climbed back on board and no assistance was given. In spite of the fact that she had a very bad rash and was in terrible pain they continued to send people into the water. Of our group of 16 about 8 were stung that morning. The guides laughed it off and kept saying the pain would go away in 15 minutes. They never checked how bad the stings actually were. They covered her whole back, both arms, her chest, stomack and legs. My sister was in pain for three days and we had to go to the pharmacy in Hoi An to get treated. And she wasn’t the only one from the group. The guides had no first aid or anything.
Third, after getting to the second snorkling place the guides assured us there were no jelly fish there. We could see the jellyfish from the boat. Some people still went in and were stung again. My sister and I did not date go in again after our first experience, so the excursion was completely spoiled for us. And my sister was getting sicker.
Fourth, we had specifically booked a wooden slowboat but had to return in a speedboat without being informed about this beforehand. The excuse was that the wooden boat was broken. When we arrived in the harbor, the wooden boat was already there.

All in all it was a horrible experience and we felt the guides were totally unprepared and inexperienced to handle unexpected situations.

Great value for the price
Went with my daughter (10yo) was a good trip for the price. Safe, friendly staff and good food. The equipment for snorkeling was in great condition. Snorkeling spot could have been better.

Happy, but not thrilled.
Feb. 2019 • Couples
The staff were all great, from the man who picked us up from our hotel, to our host/guide, to the speedboat driver who took us back to the mainland.
The diving was fine – plenty of coral to see, not terribly colourful, but alive. We didn’t see that many fish either, perhaps because the people walking undersea were attracting them to all the free food they were handing out.
There was plenty of diving time for everyone. Many were back on ship before the scheduled time to move on to lunch.
Here, we changed from the slow boat to the fast one, and the driver enjoyed giving everyone a little thrill with his driving speed and skillful maneuvering.
The lunch at first seemed most impressive, as there was a big variety and servings were generous. But in the end, we found everything over cooked, and a bit dull.
There was then a generous amount of time to relax or explore the island. When our boat came to take us home, most were ready. A pleasant way to spend an afternoon.
