For wooden boat riding trip to the South Phu Quoc, as usual, the price would fluctuate from VND 300.000 – 500.000 and of course it is the unprofitable price if the big boat just carries 5 – 10 people thereby tour providers will regroup individual booking into a big group tour of 40 – 80 people, particularly some of the big name in Phu Quoc usually carry hundred people.

For snorkeling trip by speedboat, as the government has been adopting newly amended law over the design and interior of a speedboat, many companies affording larger speedboats which could accommodate 30 people in maximum thereby please check out clearly every vague information in advance if you are intending to join any speedboat trip. Some operators are getting conscious of the matter and new small-group tours have been introduced to tourists as a consequence of the effort in response to increasing holidaymakers’ demands.
However, even getting on a small-group tour doesn’t ensure a peaceful atmosphere you will gain when in the tour as the aforementioned matter that most of the speedboat tours are sharing a similar route thereby you still meet the crowd at all of the tour’s venues.
