3. Snorkelling

Nha Trang Snorkelling is a scuba diving sport with swimming goggles. Visitors will face down in the water to see the coral reefs below. Many people will wonder in case they can't swim, whether they join in or not. It is possible. Because Snorkeling is swimming above the water and looking down below, so if you don't know how to swim, you can wear a life jacket. Those who already know how to swim can dive deep below to see more clearly.

However, don't touch or break the coral when sinking because many corals are very easy to die when being directly reached.
