Southwest of Phnom Penh off the southwestern coast, the snorkeling on Phu Quoc Island is considered the best in Vietnam. The best Phu Quoc Island snorkeling is off the southern tip where there are 15 islands accessible by charter boats. Alternately, there are good snorkeling dive sites found right off the northwest coast of Phu Quoc.

A good region to stay is Long Beach. To reach the snorkeling on Phu Quoc Island from the mainland, there is a regular ferry service from Pha Ha Tien. Also, the ferry service continues over to the Tho Chu archipelago, which has good snorkeling, too. To reach the snorkeling in Vietnam by air, you will most likely need to fly into Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN) located north of Ho Chi Minh City. Alternately, you may be able to get a flight into Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi. Once in Vietnam, there are several domestic airlines, such as Vietnam Airlines and Jetstar, that have routes to the remote cities closer to the dive destinations. These domestic flights can cut a day or more off travel times by bus or train. With that said, the railways in Vietnam do happen to serve the coastlines reasonably well and might be worth checking into for your itinerary. Keep in mind that the Tourist Visa for Vietnam must be issued before arrive.

Overall, Phu Quoc Island is the 2nd most popular snorkel dive spot of all 7 snorkeling dives in Vietnam.
