TOUR INTRODUCTION

* From May to October, it’s rainy season, therefore snorkeling & diving spots (Half-moon Reef & U-Turn) are subject to the Southwest monsoon. We will take you to North-East Coral Reef, Coral Steep and Shallow Reef instead

This private distinct & crowd-avoiding snorkeling tour, the tour is arranged to go searching for the peaceful atmosphere in the An Thoi archipelago and the hidden coral reefs. It will give you a chance to fully feast on the very best of Phu Quoc’s untouched parts with a wide range of beach activities, notably: snorkeling, swimming, free diving (within your ability), chilling on the beach,… More specifically, each particular activity may come about on an individual detached island during the tour under our professional guide & support. Be as relaxed or active as you like, because this is your private time.
