Discover the spectacular karst landscapes of northern Vietnam and explore off the beaten tourist track on this one day boat cruise around Halong and Lan Ha Bays.
Halong & Lan Ha Bay 1 Day Tour from Cat Ba
After picking you up from your hotel or the meeting point in Cat Ba at 7:45 am, we'll board a minibus and head to the dock where our boat will be waiting.
We'll be welcomed on board with a tea or coffee as we set sail from the island of Cat Ba. Our boat trip will take us around Lan Ha Bay to admire the breathtaking limestone islands characteristic of this area of northern Vietnam. We'll sail past Monkey Island and Buddha Island, two of the most popular tourist attractions in the area.
Sailing through the beautiful landscapes of Halong Bay, we'll reach Bai Tu Long Bay, one of the least crowded spots in this famous area and the perfect place to anchor our boat. We'll take the opportunity to enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea, as well renewing our energy with a delicious meal on board the boat. Typical Vietnamese delicacies and mouth-watering seafood await!
At 1 pm, we'll leave the bay behind and cruise onwards to find a good place to kayak. We'll then spend an hour and a half kayaking through caves and natural rock tunnels, exploring places that the boat can't reach. You'll also have the opportunity to delve deeper into the marine world, snorkelling in the waters of northern Vietnam!
At the end of an unforgettable day exploring Halong and Lan Ha bays, we'll make the return journey to Cat Ba via a floating fishing village located just off the coast of the island. You'll be dropped back off at the original pick up point at 5:40 pm.
