TOUR INTRODUCTION

 
Strikingly different with other mass group snorkeling tours on the island, OnBird only operates the small-scaled trip, minimum 4 adults and maximum 8 adults on a tour to maximize the experience of guests and minimize the damage on coral reefs.
Despite the fact that our speedboat capacity is up to 20 adults, we limit the numbers of participants on each journey, so that each individual traveler still gain enough privacy during the snorkeling trip with us.
With a touristy-avoiding route and timeframe, the tour will go searching for the peaceful atmosphere in the An Thoi archipelago and the hidden coral reefs. Our guests are able to enjoy the beautiful coral reefs “in an explorative manner”, which is totally less known in Phu Quoc Island.
