We booked a 2 days/ 2 nights boat trip through ha long bay on board the "Dolphin". Everything went smooth: starting from the pick up at our hotel in Hanoi 6.15 am, we took the hydrofoil in Haiphong at 9am and arrived in Cat Ba town around 10 am. Kay - our local guide was already waiting for us. We... More

We did the 2 day/1 night boat trip. Weather pretty misty, but it added to the atmosphere and the kayaking into the lagoons was brilliant - even saw the white headed langurs! Food was brilliant and the crew were great.

We did a one day hike in cat Ba national park for $18/person. It was awesome but very dangerous. The rocks were wet and slippery and a lot of up and down. You need to be fit and make sure you have proper hiking shoes. We were told it was an easy hike and it was not. But we did... More

We did one day trip in Lan ha and Ha long bay with those guys and it was as promised. But first they have wrong position on tripadvisor map, office is almost oposite to welcome arch. So after spending some time looking for the office, we finally booked. Trip starts at 8, ends at 5 and when the weather is... More

We did the 2 days/1 night boat trip and we loved it! Even though the weather was not so good, it is still a wonderfull surrounding! We really enjoyed the kayaking through some caves and to the hidden lagoons. The food was perhaps the best food in my month travelling with a lot of fresh fish. The guide, captain and... More

We had a great time out with these guys today. The kayaking through the dark cave was a thrill and we believe we may have seen some monkey movements on the island lol. The lunch feast was delicious! We gorged ourselves on various dishes. In the afternoon a few of us jumped of the top of the boat and swam... More

We booked the 3d/2n Ha Long Bay Cruise on the "Dolphin" and enjoyed it very much. Our guide Hang knew a lot about the area and was fun to chat with. Although the weather wasn't great, we enjoyed kayaking and exploring the caves and visiting floating villages. The food, prepared by our chef Cuong, was amazing. Fresh fish, seafood, spring... More

After doing a great tour with Asia Outdoors, we decided to do a second one with Cat Ba Ventures, the owner of which is married to the owner of the hotel where we were staying. Like the hotel - Thu Ha - this was also an excellent choice! This was a tour of the national park. It was brilliant and... More

$30 is an absolute steal for a full day trip including Kayaking and lunch. Don't miss this. Perhaps the most magical place I've ever been to. Just as stunning as the Sounds of New Zealand. Tip: Take your own beer/snacks since nothing you buy on the boat is free. Also take 2 towels, a jacket and sturdy shoes for exploring... More
