Hon Mun Island Snorkeling Tour In Nha Trang

On our visit to coastal resort City of Nha Trang in Vietnam a few seasons ago, my son and I had a great day taking the a …

arranged through Ever Blue Travel. 

Whenever I visit any 🏖 tropical beach destination around the globe, the first thing I try to book is a Snorkeling or Scuba Diving Tour.

I spotted this adventure from the tour desk located in our hotel lobby and just had to go!

Situated right inside the lobby of our beautiful oceanfront 🏨 hotel in Nha Trang, was a friendly tour excursion agent with Ever Blue Travel. 

Arrangements were made to head out the next morning to one of the most beautiful nearby islands known as 🏝 Hon Mun.

Hon Mun or also referred to as {Ebony Island}, is a pristine 🤿 scuba diving and snorkeling destination and just minutes from Nha Trang town center by 🚤 boat.

This island is also a {protected marine area} in Vietnam, managed by 🐠 Marine Protected Area (MPA) Nha Trang.

 

Located on the south of Nha Trang Bay among a few other scattered islands, this is by far the favorite island for underwater enthusiasts.

Picked up at our hotel promptly by our 🚌 Ever Blue Travel driver, we made our way to the nearby marina to catch our 🚤 speed boat across to the island. 

Located at the marina, is also the {Museum of Oceanography} and our tour just happened to include a short visit to the 🐟 Aquarium!

Halls lined with tanks full of beautiful 🐠 tropical fish, with larger ones housing 🐢 sea turtles, 🦈 sharks and much more. The visit was interesting, before continuing on and climbing onto our boat.

The weather was clearing from morning 🌧 showers and overcast skies, so the timing was perfect to board our speedboat!

Speed Boat Ride to Hon Mun Island

Nha Trang Marina and Princess Cruise Ship

Arriving at the Marina earlier, the skies were eerily dark and raining slightly. Showing in the distance is a

having arrived in port early in the morning. The marina was bustling with tour boats of all sizes, as we made our way onto the speed boats. It was a 🏁 race across the bay to the island to see who would be the first in the water at our destination of; Hon Mun Island!

With the skies clearing and the water turning clearer as we approached, I was looking forward to snorkeling in another part of the world.

As soon as our snorkeling equipment supplied by the tour operator was fitted to our liking, into the warm clear waters we went. The first thing I noticed was the remarkable shape the condition of the coral was, especially for being such a tourist bound destination.

So great to see! ❤

Arriving at Our Snorkeling Location at Hon Mun Island

Hon Mun Island Snorkeling Tour

Beautiful coral surrounded our entire 🤿 dive and snorkel area!

Such a pleasant surprise compared to other destinations we’ve traveled to, where the coral was smoothed over and ruined by tourists.

Just as luck would have it, my underwater 📸 camera which I had gone scuba diving with on many prior dive trips, leaked! My camera was ruined and my chance of taking a few pictures of the beautiful coral was not to be. 🙁

How disappointing when one pays for an expensive underwater camera, to find that just after a few short years, it leaks. 

Aarrggg!!!

The next 3 pictures shown below, give you an idea of just what to expect when taking this snorkeling tour out to beautiful 🏝 Hon Mun Island.

The water was crystal clear and very warm when we visited in November. We were very comfortable in our bathing suits only!

The island is surrounded with lovely coral reefs with beautiful colorful 🐠 marine life surrounding the coral!

After enjoying at least 1 hour snorkeling in the warm sea enjoying the view, we then boarded our boat and headed to a small floating fish farm.

This farm was scattered with a few floating homes. We made a brief pit stop and given the opportunity to purchase a 🍺 refreshment at the local floating store.

It was then on our way to another larger neighboring island. On this island, it was time to enjoy an excellent Vietnamese outdoor lunch along the shores of South China Sea.

After given plenty of time to enjoy our lunch and relax, it was then back onboard our boat for the journey back to the marina. Our shuttle bus was waiting upon our arrival, taking us for a brief ride back to our hotel.

Although the skies were cloudy and rainy at times, it was an enjoyable way to spend the morning. Nothing beats a great day on and in the water snorkeling!

Later, enjoying lunch and a chance to mingle with our other travelers from different parts of the world! 🌎
