Start your morning with a delightful drive from Danang to Hoi An where your speedboat will be waiting to take you on this exciting Cu Lao Cham Island tour. Upon arrival at Bai Lang pier, you will have the opportunity to visit a small museum showcasing the history and culture of the local Cham people and highlighting the plethora of marine life living within the crystalline waters of this biosphere.
This greater understanding of life both above and below these Vietnam islands helps you to appreciate the environment you’re in, while enriching your experience as you embark on the ultimate Cham Island snorkeling adventure. Gliding through the sparkling water you will be surrounded by a range of aquatic life, including more 100 species of beautiful coral, endless hectares of seaweed and underwater plants, four types of tiger shrimp, 84 species of mollusc and a myriad of dazzling fish and other rare or endangered sea creatures. Few things to do in Danang compare to the thrill of this truly personal contact with the world beneath the sea.
Having worked up an appetite swimming and snorkeling around Cu Lao Cham Island, a much- anticipated seafood lunch will await you back at Bai Lang fishing village. Enjoy an array of fresh shrimp and squid dishes, while also sampling local vegetables, exotic fruit and sweet Vietnamese dessert.
After lunch comes the most difficult decision you’ll make all day – will you take a luxurious snooze while swinging in a hammock; dive back into the sea for some more Cham Island snorkeling; sunbathe on the white sands of the secluded beaches; or will you channel your inner Robinson Crusoe and explore the island’s tropical trails. Whatever you choose, the afternoon is yours before the speedboat inevitably heads back to the mainland from Bai Lang pier – leaving in its wake vividly perfect memories of your time on this unforgettable Cu Lao Cham Island tour.
