    Volleyball on the beach in Nha Trang.
    1 more image

    The beach and the beachfront is a big meeting point for those who like to be active in Nha Trang.
    There are dozens of people playing football, volleyball, running and doing other sports especially by late afternoon and it´s generally not hard to join them and take part.
    I have played football with the local guys there several times and it´s a great way to make new friends and before you know it you will probaply end up in a karaoke bar after the game is finished with all your new friends.

    For those who have yet to try parasailing, this is the place to try.

    It is a special parachute with winglike extensions that will lift the person in its harness up and through the air when towed by a speedboat.

    Equipment: Just bring yourself and all equipment will be provided.

    Scuba dive in Nha Trang

    by kelnsha Updated Aug 5, 2006

    Coco Dive Center
    4 more images

    You can either scuba dive or snorkel here by booking a full or half day outing with one of the dive shops in Nha Trang.

    A full day outing including boat transport, 2 or 3 dives and lunch typically cost between US$35 and US$90. Most dive operators also offer a range of dive courses, including a 'discover diving' programme for uncertified, first-time divers to experience the thrill under the supervision of a qualified dive master.

    It is difficult to recommend one dive operator over another: my best advice is to shop around, speak to a few different operators and use your better judgement. I spoke to three dive operators (Coco, Octopus & Rainbow Divers) and they provide good customer service. I chose Coco Dive Center because they are much cheaper.

    Equipment: You do not need to bring any dive gears here becuase they are all inclusive in the dive package. The only difference is you pay US$5 less if you bring all your dive equipment. If you prefer using your own gear, just bring your dive mask and snorkel will do.

    Do bring sunblock or sunscreen if you do not wish to be burned. Of course, suntan lotion or oil if you want to have a good tan.

    Diving with Rainbow Divers

    by Fuzk84 Written Jul 29, 2006

    I went diving with Rainbow Divers. Since I'm a total noob i went for DSD (discover scuba diving). Slightly over $50USD (including taxes and all) for two dives of about 20mins each.
    The divemasters(?) are all friendly and professional. I felt like i was in safe hands all the time. They are all nice enough to point out the interesting creatures when underwater with them. I had a very enjoyable experience onboard with them! Well worth the money!
    I didn't take my camera along so there are no pics to show.. =_=

    Jeremy Stein's Rainbow Divers

    by TravelFess Written May 14, 2006

    I have scuba dived numerous places and this is place is top notch. I got my advanced certification through them and my friend got her initial PADI certification. They have numerous instructors (I was one on one for my adv certification). Also there were only 3 (at most) divers per master diver on all the dives. Many dive clubs in the SE Asia area can be less than reputable but this place is the real deal. I highly advise them.

    Relaxing on the upper deck on the way back

    I went diving with Rainbow Divers for two days. I dive regularly with my own equipment back home, and I like my diving operators to pay due respect to safety, equipment, and service. I was very happy with Rainbow Divers, but their prices are not the cheapest in town (42 USD per day incl. gear, two dives). Decent equipment (although their wetsuits were a bit thin, and fins cheap). Great divemasters, good service, nice boat.

    I knew conditions were not great in January, but I was pleasantly surprised. About 10 metres visibility, lots of fish, corals etc. Definetely worth diving here even off-season, unless you demand Red Sea visibility.

    Equipment: Swimming trunks, towel, certification card, good spirits and a sense of adventure. Food, drinks, equipment included.

    Jetski

    Jetski can be hired at Nha Trang beach at the cost of VND200.000 for 15mins slot.

    Please making sure that the life jacket is securely fastens. All the left side straps on my life jacket were breaking lose when I was thrown off after attempting a sharp turn and it me harder to swim to recover the jetski.

    Diving in Nha Trang with Rainbow Divers

    Diver Down

    The diving is pretty good here but not the best. However, it is a very good place to learn to dive. You can see squid, schools of fish, moray eels, coral, etc. Rainbow Divers are the best as they keep their equipment up to date and have top notch people in charge. Very reasonable rates with $35 US for a try dive ($50 for 2 try dives) and somewhere around $200 US for a full course.

    Diving in Nha Trang

    by elbe Written Feb 24, 2003
    On the beach in Nha Trang

    The beach of Nha Trang seems like paradise if you’ve been on the road in an bus for several days: White sand, blue water, green palms and above that a blue, sunny sky. Perfect to go underwater :-) At the PADI 5 Star Dive Centre “Rainbow Divers” you’ve the possibility to see the Chinese Sea from another side. Unfortunately I haven’t had the time to dive but I talked to an instructor who seemed to be very serious and of course PADI is a name around the world (I also learned diving there) and so you should be in good hands. But I have to say that I’ve done a walk on the beach as there was low tide. And I saw a lot of garbage (which is completely gone when there’s high tide) and a cadaver of a dog who has been skinned. So probably you should have good nerves if you want to dive there :-)
    A daily boat trip with min. two divers: $ 50
    beach dive (with buddy): $ 25
    beach dive (with divemaster): $ 30
    They also offer night diving, open water course, advanced course, rescue course and others.

    Equipment: You can rent everything there.

    Beach Volley

    I must say that beach volley is the universal beach activity that played everywhere in the world.

    P/s: Of course these people must first know the rules of playing regular volley.
