We had an excellent two night tour with Blue Swimmer. We booked our tour from the operator of the company (Xuan) who was very nice and took the time to explain all the myriad options. Service afterward was awesome too, they booked our ongoing travel for us and shuttled us to the ticket office where our tickets were waiting. Our... More

Our family (two adults, three teenage children) used Blue Swimmer Adventures for a one day boat tour of Lan Ha Bay. The trip was one of the highlights of our five weeks in Vietnam/Cambodia - very organised, lovely, clean boat and the lunch (cooked fresh on board) was at least equal to some of the better restaurants we've eaten in....

As we wanted to explore the Lanha Bay Bay on kayaks, we were told that the only place we can rent the sea kayaks from is the Blueswimmer at the Ben Beo harbor. To ensure that all will be smooth we went to talk to the people in the office day before our trip to see the kayaks, to check... More

While booking we found the price rather high. But once there and we realised how much value we got for the money, we were extremely pleased. Our family of four had a great, and very private, time, with an outstanding guide, Hien. If you want to see this amazing landscape from nearby in an active way, this is just perfect!... More

Took the family on this trip day after arrival in Hanoi, it could not have been easier or more polished: Picked up from hotel exactly as they arranged. Transfers to Cat Ba seamless Guide waiting for us on arrival from hydrofoil. Minh...a top guy who always went the extra mile to help out and make sure we were all comfortable.... More

I had been a hoping to do 'experienced sea kayaker' trip in Hanong Bay. So upon arriving in Cat Ba we immediately got a taxi over to Ben Beo harbour to http://blueswimmersailing.com/ to check them out and hopefully organise a trip for the next day. We met Vinh and talked about possible routes on a map - all was organised.... More

We did a two day one night kayak tour and loved it. Blue swimmer was so flexible, we could tailor the trip just the way we wanted it. They told us that they had a max of six people in a group but it ended up just being my travel buddy and I with our awesome tour guide Tsang. He... More

We enjoyed a Blue Swimmer tour of Lan Ha and Halong bay at the end of a short break in Vietnam. Loved the variety of activities, the kayaks, bikes and safety equipment were in good order. We were well briefed beforehand and crew were excellent and knowledgeable of the area. Food was lovely throughout and very generous. Blue Swimmer also... More

Yesterday I rented a kayak from Blue Swimmers Kayaks. I went with one other traveler I met along the way. The day was really fantastic! One of my favorite experiences in Vietnam. I believe that kayaking is the best way to experience the Halong Bay region. Also I think that the area around Catba is as beautiful as anywhere in... More
