I was just in Kenting and was BLOWN AWAY with snokeling. Really increadible - I went to Houbihu and then to BaiSha. Houbihu looks gross, with the Nuclear plant and the pier there. It’s omnious looking. But once you put your face under water, it’s fantastic. It could be super crowded on the weekends. Baisha was very nice with rock outcroppings and sandy bottoms - but the waves were a bit scary.
The company I used to rent the equipment - boots, wetsuit (great floatation and sun protection), fins, mask, and snorkel - is Ocean World near DaKuang. The website is rey-ray.24cc.com
Anyway, It’s two guys named Ray (One spells it with an ‘e’). They do a DD and open water course, as well. They both have pretty good english and seem to understand the foreigner way.
The open water course they can do in three days and will give you accomodations as well. I didn’t ask about the price. But I may do it soon.
cheers - hope this helps and let us know what you decide.
PS: the website isn’t working right now… here is the email email@example.com … The COASTAL PURSUITS guys seem good, but where do they do the training - one to one ratio is nice.
