2.5-hour Sunset River Cruise and Basket Boat Rowing in Hoi An
$45.00
Overview
Set out for the Thu Bon River during a sunset cruise by riverboat, then transfer to a bamboo basket boat while you help row and cast nets with local fishermen. This guided 2.5-hour evening tour departs hotels in Hoi An Ancient Town and includes a refreshing beer or soft drink.
What to Expect

Start your 2.5-hour tour with hotel pickup from Hoi An Ancient Town in the late afternoon. It’s a brief minivan transfer to the pier where you’ll board a riverboat for a sunset cruise.

Swap the vessel for a bamboo basket boat and have a chance to try your hand at rowing along the coast. Join in the evening’s activities including learning from local fishermen the techniques of round-net and cast-net fishing.

Back aboard the riverboat, journey to the mouth of the Thu Bon River where it meets the Cua Dai Sea. Savor the sunset while you refresh with a chilled beer or soft drink. Once you arrive back at the pier, a driver will return you to your hotel in Hoi An.
