The private family snorkel adventure in Phu Quoc island with us is usually a kid-approved, mom- and dad-loved activity. We design everything that is a guaranteed good time for family bonding following a crowd-avoiding route. With shallow tidal reefs, our selective snorkeling spots have in common ease of access, pretty marine life, and not too deep water.
Here at OnBird, we always provide an experienced crew, the utmost discretion for safety measures, suitable equipment for both parents and kids (from 4 years old up), marine life education, and the best ocean activity instruction in Phu Quoc island.
Make the most of your family getaway, grab a snorkel, throw on some fins, and explore all that Phu Quoc’s underwater paradise has to offer, children included!
To ensure safety and experience, especially for kids (from 4 years old), we make forecasts about water conditions a few days before the departure date to decide safe as well as a good timeframe or even itinerary thereby the departure time will vary by the time.

WHY THIS TOUR IS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER REGULAR TOURS IN PHU QUOC:

  • Professional and scientific Snorkeling (Licensed Operator) with high safety and risk management
  • Water conditions tracking (wave, turbidity, locations, current). The only operator can tell you how water conditions will be and choose the best spots, timeframe, and date
  • Crowd-avoiding route with proper snorkeling spots
  • English-speaking & dedicated and professional UNDER-WATER GUIDE accompany you at all times during snorkeling time
  • The first and the only snorkeling adventure designed for families with kids in Phu Quoc Island
  • An easy and safe snorkel adventure crafted for both children & parents
  • High-quality and clean snorkel equipment (anti-fog mask, tube, open-heeled fins, floatation support device) for parents and kids from 4 years to 12 yrs
  • A thorough briefing along with a close-up education, and practical snorkeling allows kids to observe Phu Quoc marine life at close range.
  • Snorkeling spots designed suitable for kids and parents to marvel at vivid coral reefs and sea creatures

For environmental as well as marine protection, small-fishing with traditional reels and fish-feeding are not allowed in this snorkeling excursion (Why you should not feed the fish?)

PICK-UP TIME (Morning or Afternoon experience is subject to the water conditions)

  • Vung Bau area
  • Cua Can area
  • Ong Lang area
  • Duong Dong town
  • Bai Truong area
  • An Thoi area

 


IN DETAILS:

☑️ Pick up at your hotel, transfer to An Thoi port for the speedboat embarkation.

 You’ll be picked up at your hotel and transfer by A/C car to An Thoi port for speedboat embarkation.

 

☑️ Leave the harbor and board the speedboat for a calm crystal water spot

 

☑️ First stop for briefing & safety guidelines: Stony Coral Colony

At Stony coral colony, the family enjoys beach activities at the emerald calm water areas, get yourself familiar with the open water environment. Kids and parents have time for an educational section about snorkel gear usage, safety guidelines and snorkeling instruction by our guide. You’ll be here around 30 minutes.

 

☑️ Move to first snorkeling spot: Coral Mountain (shallow water)

Phu Quoc Coral Mountain is a shallow water and drifting snorkeling spot. Enjoy easy snorkeling at leisure as the area is pretty shallow water of 0.5 – 3m deep with great clarity of the water. Within a closeup reach, both kids and parents also have chances to discover an area of 200 – 300 sq meters of Pavona Coral or Cactus Coral.

(No limitation on time snorkeling here but its advised to less than 1 hour).

Phu Quoc Coral Mountain is basically a large clump of Cactus Coral (Pavona Coral) that has been growing in Crystal Reef with a lot of massive and table corals surrounded. They’ve been vastly developed in a shape of the undersea mountains, that’s why we named it Phu Quoc Undersea Coral Mountain.

Other species can be found here including: Christmas tree worms, massive coral, butterfly fish, etc.

 

☑️ Head for the second snorkeling spot: Coral Steep or North-east Coral Reef (Medium-depth snorkeling)

Named the coral city, the Northeast coral reef is one of the most beautiful coral reefs in Phu Quoc, Vietnam. Located 16 Km from the south of Phu Quoc Island, the Northeastern Reef is one of the most difficult to access coral reefs in Phu Quoc in a year due to its geographical position, which is frequently influenced by currents and winds. Wave season should be closely watched for new water conditions to determine a safe time frame to reach the reef. With a depth of 1 – 8m along with a high species diversity from hard corals and soft corals, as observed by OnBird, there are about 18 different species of coral, creating a diverse coral population that looks like a miniature coral city.

Coral Steep is a small coral field with many different coral species, we find there many cauliflower with violet colors.

 

️Relaxing time 

Re-charge energy taken for snorkeling at a Beach Bar on the island with fruit served. Bring home some memorable photos of sunset time with family on the secluded, pristine island.
