Early Morning departure – Phu Quoc Private Snorkeling Tour

1. Crystal Reef and Half-moon Reef is our first and second snorkeling spot respectively.
We will be enjoying pleasant swimming and snorkeling at Crystal Reef, experience blue clean water with schools of fish amid slightly rays of early day sunshine. Viewing clearly schools of fish swimming at the bottom at Crystal Reef is a usual thing regardless of the depth of 4 m. The most special thing to discover here is the “Phu Quoc Undersea Coral Mountain”, it is a very shallow area of 0.3 – 1 m of massive reefs of Cabbage coral and they have been growing into a massive shape of a mountain for thousands of years. In exploring the “Phu Quoc Undersea Coral Mountain” you will certainly see fish eating seaweed on coral, something will absolutely carve deep into your mind along time after the exploration.
Saying goodbye to Crystal Reef, it takes us about 5 minutes to reach Half-moon Reef at the behind of Crystal Reef whose coral reefs are much different from those in Crystal Reef. It would be hard to measure the beauty of each of those 2 islands because they all possess their own special attraction. Getting out of the speedboat into the water you will be interested in the undersea world in Half-moon Reef on sight, the average depth is about 3 m but some particular spots reach 8 – 10 m where some massive corals are out of your sight, but we can try making some free dives, but please set your mind at rest, with our guides we make sure that you can enjoy the beauty of most of the coral reefs, anemone with clownfish here as long as you are a good swimmer because normally we take 1 hour to swim off spots of coral reefs here. Right here you will have the opportunity to explore the Phu Quoc large Golden Anemone Reef or the Phu Quoc Yellow Nephthea Coral Covered Cliff... which are some of Ocean treasures under Phu Quoc sea.
After consuming most of the energy for 2 snorkeling spots, it is time to land on May Rut Trong (Hon Vong) islandwith beaches, rows of coconut trees, hammocks, swings, and a beach bar for you to charge energy again with foods, cocktail or beer…Laying your feet on white sand to leave anxiety in life behind, laying your back on a sunbathing chair and looking at islands, blue sea in the distance in order to set your mind at peace, to relax prior to noon, before leaving back the harbor because at noon (11:30 AM – 12:00 PM) May Rut Trong (Hon Vong) island will be getting crowded.
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.
