Experiences to try on Dam Ngang Island (Gam Ghi Island)
Hon Dam Ngang (Gam Ghi island) is a coral preserve of Phu Quoc island, possessing colorful coral reefs with dense density, stretching from the coast to the far distance. The sea at Dam Ngang Island is clear. It would be best to stand on the boat to see the colorful coral reefs below, so diving to see the coral here is exceptionally ideal.
The ship will usually be equipped with diving equipment: snorkel, propeller, life jacket. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to swim. You can still participate, wear a life jacket, diving goggles, and face down in the water, simple, right?
When diving to see corals, one thing to note is that you don’t step on them or break them as souvenirs. These actions cause the corals to die and lose the ecosystem here.
