How to hire a boat
- An Thoi Town: you can’t really go wrong here, boats leave all the time to the islands down south, however why not hire you’re own, they come in all sizes so find one that suits you. Plenty of fisherman here that would be keen to take you for a spin.
- Duong Dong: Another good place to try just because of the large number of fishing boats, its not as close to some of the small islands around Phu Quoc, so you might end up fishing, though viewing the Duong Dong river is another interesting alternative.
- Cua Can: Plenty of fishing boats, however it might be possible to find someone to take you around the scenic river around town, and there’s a couple of small islands a little further north.
- Vung Bau Beach is close to Turtle Island (Doi Moi) and you might be able to get across for a snorkel or a swim. The guy running the dive shop might be able to take you for a spin for a fee as well.
