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

We phoned to book a 2 day 1 night tour very late the night before we wanted to go, but Cuong the organiser came to our restaurant to arrange everything for us. We ended up having a boat just for the two of is which was great! Our guide Minh was really friendly and spoke good English. We went our... More

We had originally put 3 days aside to visit Halong Bay. Once in Hanoi we continued to review the options and decided that one of the Blue Swimmer offerings, with lots of activity, based around the less busy Cat Ba Island would suit us better. We made a good choice. Three days, two nights. Some cycling, lots of sea kayaking,... More

We booked a two-day kajak tour with Blue Swimmer. Together with Tong our guide the two of us had a fantastic time! Kayaking in the middle of Lan Ha Bay was absolutely amazing, deserted beaches and unique views. Even though we are not used to kayak for two days it was a better way to explore Lan Ha Bay than...

Guide, setting, food, views were top notch. Need tobe reasonably fit to do kayak/ride/ hike but they will personalise tour suit.

We did the 3 day tour and got to explore the beautiful sights of cat ba bay. Henry at the office and our guide were fantastic. They couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Don't stay in cat ba town but book with these guys and head straight out onto the bay when you get off the bus.

What you can expect from the customized 3 days/ nights tour with 1 night camping and 1 night on the boat: After lunch on the main island, we were brought to the private camp by a small fishermens boat run by engine (no eco aspect here). It is not really a private camp since you will be booked in at... More
