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

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

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

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.

We did a 2 night 3 day trip around Cat Ba Island. It involved a lot of kayaking which was hard on the arms but this is a really great way to see the island. We ran into very few other tourists on our adventure which was another huge bonus. Our guide, Ben, was probably the best part of the... More

We used Blue Swimmer for a days boating and kayaking in and around Cat Ba Island. Having seen them recommended in the guidebook, we stumbled across them whilst having a wander and promptly booked a trip for the next day. Although more expensive than many trips advertised on the island, we had a tailor made experience and thoroughly enjoyed the... More
