Nha Trang and scuba diving tours:
Launched in Nha Trang since 2003, scuba diving service has significantly contributed to the success of Khanh Hoa tourism industry. It also helps raise the attraction and diversity of this tourist spot.
Andrew Kate, a tourist from Holland said: “I have never gone scuba diving and Nha Trang is the first place where I have tried it. The reason why I want to try such a risky type of sport is the beautiful sea, the clean water, and the warm sunshine here. It is a great condition for Nha Trang to develop types of sport in the sea. Personally, I was so satisfied after trying myself with scuba-diving. I was actually impressed by Hon Mu marine ecosystem, which is so diverse with a large variety of colorful species. For me, it is like a wonderful and lively picture of the marine world. Also, the scuba diving service is really good”.
Once invested and exploited in a right way, scuba diving service will be “a chicken that lays golden eggs” for the local tourism industry. It is a good fortune for Nha Trang to have many advantages of the natural, especially in developing sea island travel. However, the exploitation of scuba diving service brings about both economic benefits and environmental problems. Thus, to exploit the tourism potential as well as to achieve the long-term benefits, tight measures for the preservation of marine ecosystem should be taken towards local residents, tourism exploiters, and tourists.
