A one-of-a-kind submersible innovation with a transparent hull is now
whisking tourist away on an aquatic ride of their lifetime at Vinpearl
Nha Trang Resort.
Named the Vinpearl Submarine Nha Trang, this submersible can reach
depths of up to 100 metres. The submarine is created by Triton — a
Florida-based luxury submersible company — from premium-grade “optically
perfect” panoramic acrylic panels that offer guests an almost
360-degree crystal-clear view of the vivid marine life flitting past its
The submarine set off on its first dive in May this year from
Vinpearl Nha Trang Resort located on Hon Tre Island, Vietnam. It
measures 15.4 metres long and can seat a total of 24 guests.
During the 30-minute dives, passengers on board will be taken to view
shipwrecks, coral reefs and an array of colourful marine creatures,
alongside a diver show that serves as a fun and experiential way to
inspire positive action for environmental issues.
Other than doing its part for the environment by educating guests on
ocean sustainability, the Vinpearl Submarine Nha Trang is also touted as
an eco-friendly ride and described to be “virtually silent, entirely
non-polluting and producing no carbon or effluent emissions.”

According to Ngo Huong, a representative for Vinpearl, “Triton has a
demonstrated reputation for building submarines that can repeatedly and
safely visit even the deepest points in our oceans, and we knew their
significant experience would ensure the safety of the sub, and in turn,
Bruce Jones, CEO of Triton, added that the technology advances in
submersible innovation would boost the "overall guest experience" for
tourists at Vinpearl.
Tickets are currently priced at a discounted rate of 980,000 VND
(US$42) per pax online via Vinpearl’s own booking platform, but all
upcoming rides are currently sold out.
Travel agents can also get in touch with the resort to offer the submarine tickets to their clients.
