Make the most of your time on Cat Ba exploring the breathtaking natural landscapes of Halong Bay on a two-day cruise. Sail, snorkel and kayak around hidden areas of the Vietnamese coast.
Halong Bay 2 Day Cruise
Having picked you up from your hotel or the meeting point in Cat Ba at 9 am, we'll make the short journey by minibus to Beo Dock. There, our cruise ship will be waiting for our two-day adventure on Halong Bay.
Setting sail from Cat Ba, we'll sail past Monkey Island and Buddha Island, both located in the tranquil Lan Ha Bay. We'll then set a course for Halong Bay, where we'll spend the rest of the day exploring its natural wonders. Climbing into kayaks, we'll delve deep into rock formations like the Monkey, Dark, Bright and Bat Caves. You'll be enchanted by the hidden lagoons and beautiful karst landscapes!
Afterwards, we'll return to the boat and continue our cruise to the north of the bay, where we'll drop anchor to eat a delicious lunch while enjoying the spectacular views. In the afternoon, with renewed energy, we'll go snorkelling, before visiting the largest fish farm in the area.
As night falls, we'll anchor the boat for a very special activity: a Vietnamese cooking class! Learn to prepare typical spring rolls and - of course - taste them afterwards! Then, for the finishing touch on the day, we'll grab our kayaks again and paddle out to see the bioluminescent plankton that shine from under the water at night - a truly unforgettable experience! We'll then retire to our cabins for the night.
Begin the day bright and early with breakfast at sunrise, before setting off for the island of Dau Be, where we'll take to our kayaks again in search of the three hidden lagoons, a secret natural paradise off the tourist track.
We'll have lunch back on the boat, enjoying Vietnamese specialities and tasty seafood, before sailing over to Tung Cai Lagoon. Perhaps you'll recognise this stunning bay - it served as the filming location for the King Kong Skull Island movie! After swimming and snorkelling in the lagoon, we'll make the journey back to Cat Ba.
Our unforgettable two-day tour of Halong Bay will come to an end at approximately 3 pm back at the original departure point on Cat Ba Island.
This cruise includes one night's full-board accommodation on board the boat. The price indicated is per person sharing a double cabin.
