The Con Dao Islands are located about 180km from Vung Tau.

Con Son is the main island and was a prison until 1975.

The Diving

The local dive centre is managed by senior Instructors. They rotate on a monthly basis onto the Island to rediscover for themselves the best diving in the country. The dive boat is purpose-built for up to 20 divers. Diving is possible every day, subject to a minimum of 2 divers. Single dive trips will be surcharged.

The boat usually departs at 7.30am after breakfast at your hotel. Water & fruit is complimentary on board, but please ask your Hotel to prepare a ‘snack-box’ if you wish to eat something more during the trip. We do however usually return in time for lunch.

Personal Accident & Evacuation Insurance is necessary because of the remote location of the Islands. You can arrange this directly with DAN through the local dive center.
