This adventure will take place in the North of Phu Quoc Island in 12-hour length, only 4 people per trip are allowed.
You are cordially invited to go on a spearfishing/island adventure with the Savage Dragon. Spearfishing is an ancient sport, but this time, we are doing it in a modern way. If your picture of spearfishing consists of a man in a speedo standing on a rock-throwing a spear into the water, well… it’s time to update that image a lil’ bit. A modern spearfisher hunt with a speargun is protected by a neoprene wetsuit against the environment of the seas and navigates the underwater depths using a pair of long freediving fins. Sunset is when we shall conclude our hunt, and hopefully we will have gathered enough for our dinner. It’s time to hop back into my jeep and drive back home. Dinner and relaxing time awaits!

***There is also a “secret” location called Mystery Island so hidden away that no tourist boat ever goes there. It is known to only a handful of local fishermen who go there once a year. In order to get there sea conditions have to be perfect: calm waters, still winds and weak waves. Mystery Island is an absolute gem but is not included in the usual travel plan due to its difficulty to access. However, every now and then, perhaps once a month, there is that perfect day. Should you happen to be the lucky few, I will announce it and the decision to visit it is yours.***
Collagen là một loại protein chiếm 25% tổng lượng protein cơ thể và đến 70% cấu trúc da. Collagen phân bố chủ yếu ở lớp hạ bì, có chức năng chính là kết nối các mô trong cơ thể, kích thích quá trình trao đổi chất. Được mệnh danh là thần dược cho làn da không tuổi nên uống Collagen đóng vai trò cực kỳ quan trọng sự khỏe mạnh của làn da. Ngoài chức năng kết nối các tế bào da, viên uống Collagen còn có nhiệm vụ tạo ra sự đàn hồi, kích thích quá trình trao đổi chất. Từ tuổi 30, lượng Collagen bắt đầu suy giảm về số lượng và cả chất lượng, hậu quả của tình trạng này là những thay đổi rõ rệt trên da mà chúng ta còn hay gọi là dấu hiệu lão hóa như: độ căng mịn, đàn hồi da giảm dần, các nếp nhăn trên khóe mắt, miệng bắt đầu xuất hiện và lâu dần sẽ hình thành nên những nếp nhăn sâu dễ thấy khi nàng cười hay chuyển động các cơ mặt, những đường nét trên khuôn mặt có xu hướng chảy xệ.

You are cordially invited to go on a spearfishing/island adventure with us by a vintage Army Jeep in 12 hours to North Phu Quoc. Spearfishing is an ancient sport, but this time, we are doing it in a modern way.
What to expect in this spectacular hunt?
You can either come with me as Accompanied Guests or as Hunters. Accompanied Guests get to experience everything but they do not actually do the hunting parts. Hunters, on the other hand, will be supplied with their own spearfishing gear and will go with me to spear some nice fish for the group to eat. Novice Hunters are those trying spearfishing for the first time and will receive instructions on speargun handling and safety. Advanced Hunters will go hunting at their own pace. Either way, everyone will get to taste their own delicious seafood-decked lunch and dinner and experience an adventure like no other on this side of the Gulf of Thailand).
For this North trip, we shall drive to Ganh Dau village and get onto our boat from there. There are five usual hunting spots: Mouse, Almond, and Turtle Island, plus Monkey Beach and Tidal Rocks. Generally, we should have time to visit 2 to 3 spots during our adventure. The decision to visit which spot depends on the weather, visibility, sea roughness, and my judgment as well as experience.
The first order of business is to make landfall at one of our hunting grounds and prepare a campfire for lunch. Thus, the only two viable spots for our first landfall are either Almond Island or Monkey Beach. Almond Island has a rocky shore littered with limestone coral fragments and a lovely spot for our camp under the shade of a beach almond tree. Monkey Beach is a hidden stretch of golden sand without road access – the only way to get there is by boat, thus it remains unspoiled and untouched by mass tourism. You might be wondering… if Almond Island has a beach almond tree, does that mean Monkey Beach has…? Absolutely! There’s a family of monkeys living in the jungle surrounding the beach, and they often come down to pay our meals (and coconuts) a visit.
We can start spearfishing immediately at our first landing spot. I will get the fire going and join the hunt as well. After some hours hunting, we will prepare our lunch, possibly with the fish we manage to get. Afterward, we can resume our hunt. From here our options are quite varied.
We can head towards Mouse Island, which is famous among the local spearfishing community for its abundance of fish – large mackerels, trevallies, parrotfish, tusk fish, coral trouts, emperor hogfish, snappers, mangrove jacks… Whatever your flavor, Mouse Island has gotten you covered.
Another interesting spot is an often overlooked place called Tidal Rocks. These rocks jut out of the waterline and in the distance, you’re more likely to see the sea foam bashing against them, rather than the rocks themselves. This little sanctuary in the open sea provides ample hiding spots for larger cobias and groupers.
Turtle Island is a famous spot for scuba divers, snorkelers, and other guests from Vinpearl. Corals here are without equal, and there is plenty to see underwater. It is a great spot for beginner spearfishers as well as an amazing aquarium for snorkelers and non-spearfishing guests to enjoy.
Sunset is when we shall conclude our hunt, and hopefully, we will have gathered enough for our dinner. It’s time to hop back into my jeep and drive back home. Dinner and relaxing time await!
1. Why do our tours usually depart different time to other tour operators'?
The development of the smokeless industry is enjoying a strong rise in a number of tourists, this has given rise to noisy space in Phu Quoc in general and the An Thoi archipelago in particular. This is one of the challenging riddles needed solving for us to bring customers to see natural beauty, a quiet atmosphere, the original sense of Phu Quoc Island. And as a result, we eventually found out a proper solution, schedule for customers that want to stay away from the crowd. So much noise in life that we cannot absorb. Starting the tour earlier, we make sure that you will be experiencing the noise, discomfort from external elements. You probably don’t want to meet carrying hundreds of people boats as well as land on a crowded island that certainly ruins your experience?
2. Notice of environmental protection
“Traditional Vietnamese Handline Fishing” is “eliminated” from activities for purpose of conserving marine ecosystem Every day hundreds of boat leaving the harbor for “snorkeling tour” in Phu Quoc, most of them provide customers with fishing activity and mostly they fish tiny and small size fish with rudimentary tools (handline). For Onbird, we keep a “terrible” vision of this irresponsibility in the protection of the environment.For snorkeling tour on purpose if you fish then you will probably fish up small size fish, we don’t expect big fish from this tour and there is no point in fishing if you will eventually let them back the sea in either living or dead status, on the other hand, it is crime against the nature mother.
“Dedicated Professional Deep sea fishing Trip” is dedicated to providing customers with an awesome experience fishing big fish in the waters around the An Thoi archipelago. This is a dedicated fishing trip with dedicated fishing boat, electronic Sonar, GPS, Top American Penn Equipment, and specialized UK guide.
There is an upsurge in the number of visitors to Phu Quoc island during the last few years. Hundreds of big wooden boats have been being made in order to meet orders of purchasing from “cheap” tour companies. These carrying many people boats have been being a direct cause of dying coral reefs in Phu Quoc. They are irresponsible in anchoring, guiding customers in shallow areas of coral reef. Local government is implementing a number of solutions in order to limit the number of wooden boats, restricting them from anchoring in areas of coral reefs.
