Diving around Nha Trang takes place in one of three locations. Hon Mun Marine Park, 5 miles (8 kilometers) east of Nha Trang, features pinnacles that slide from the surface down to 150 feet (50 meters). Macro and reef life is healthy here.
Alternatively, Moray Beach, with its shallow sandy bottom, is great for training dives and, of course, for spotting moray eels. Further north, Whale Island offers some of the most diverse marine life in the area. Seahorses, frogfish and stone fish can be found hiding among the numerous pinnacles surrounding the island. Eagle rays and stingrays can also be encountered in the deeper areas of these dive sites.

Tan Son Nhat International Airport (Ho Chi Minh; SGN) is well served by flights originating in North America, Australia and Europe. Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi is an alternative entry point. However, Nha Trang is significantly further from Hanoi than from Ho Chi Minh City.
Once you have arrived in Vietnam, local flights are available via Jetstar Pacific and Vietnam Airlines into Nha Trang Airport. Trains and buses also travel between Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang.
