Whether you are a diver or non-diver, jiver or non-jiver, all are welcome!
What better way to unwind after CPAC 2020 in the bustling city than an extra week of rest & relaxation on a tropical island off the southern tip of Vietnam! October is the start of the dry season in Phu Quoc, so plenty of sunshine, water temperatures up to 320C and visibility from 8-12 metres.
Plan for lots of swimming, sun-bathing, snorkelling, scuba diving, etc. during the day, and al fresco dancing by the pool/in the beach bars in the evenings. Sightseeing tours and other activities may also be planned for those interested.
Stated dates for Dive & Jive are just a suggestion. You can stay for as long or as short as you like! Bookings for day trips, courses, and accommodation may be added on to your CPAC registration by logging into your participant account.
We recommend taking the 4:45pm Jetstar flight from Danang (DAD) on Monday 19 Oct, landing at 6:40pm in Phu Quoc (PQC). Duration: 1hr 55mins, approximate cost: USD 85.
Flipper Diving Club, a PADI 5* Instructor Development Dive Centre, runs daily diving and snorkelling trips to the islands around Phu Quoc. Snorkelers, divers, and passengers all go on the same boat, so even if you just want to come relax and read a book on board while the rest are diving or snorkelling…no problem!
For logistical purposes, we are only offering day trips to the South for booking. Compared to the North, the South also has a larger variety of sites to choose from and better diving! Check out the dive sites here.
Do remember to allow 24 hours after the end of your last dive before flying! Be safe.
