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

Firstly, our guide Minh was excellent. Very friendly and genuinely cared about us having the best possible experience. The 4 day tour had the right amount of variety. Kayaking was great, as was the rainforest trek, cycling and hike to the cannon fort. The accommodation was comfortable. We really enjoyed our night in the homestay, where we were treated to... 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

My wife and I chose Blue Swimmer for a 3-day adventure in Lan Ha Bay and Cat Ba Island and had a fantastic time. The accommodations are rustic, but that wasn't what we were there for. We wanted to go kayaking, swimming, biking, and feel close to the nature in this beautiful area. Blue Swimmer's tour completely delivered. Our guide... More

My husband and I booked a customised tour of 2 nights, 3 days with Blue Swimmer - involving one night in a beach bungalow and one on a junk boat, a lot of sea kayaking and swimming, and some hiking and cycling. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip, particularly travelling and sleeping on the junk boat. It was also fantastic to... 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.
