Vietnam – Nha Trang – Snorkelling

– NOVEMBER 02, 2015

Today we were able to get a little bit more sleep before the 9am shuttle bus picked us up at our hostel to drive us to the docks for a day of snorkelling.  It started raining here in Nha Trang late last night and continued through the morning.  The city here doesn’t have a sewer system, so all of the rain water gathers in the streets until it eventually makes its way to the seaside.  Travelling through town in these conditions can be a bit dangerous, but our shuttle bus was well equipped for the short drive.  Take a look below to see the water pouring down the last stairwell to the ocean and location of the docks.

Nha Trang Snorkelling – It was raining and with no sewer in this town the water pours down to the seaside. Look at the stairwell for the waterfall of rainwater gushing down!

There were 12 people booked for this snorkelling trip, while the boat could hold 28 passengers, so it wasn’t full.  The rain must have scared away some people, but we have snorkelled in the rain before and we found it to be quite fun.

Nha Trang Snorkelling – A good day.

The weather conditions weren’t perfect, but we made the most of it and had a good time.  There will be more snorkelling fun to come in Thailand and the Philippines, but today was a nice change of pace from seeing land-based stuff.  A good day.
