Went there around 3 pm and found out it was closed even if it's supposed to be open at the time. There were people on the house beside the place so I asked about the kayak tours and they did not seem to understand.
I was about to leave but then one of the people I asked handed me a phone which I suppose was the owner and someone arrived in a few minutes.
Paid 250k VDN for a 1.5 hour kayak rental, it was supposed to be 2 hours but it was getting pretty late. A dry bag and life jacket were provided. It was a really nice experience, not advisable to do alone though(for safety reasons). But I still enjoyed it very much, i was the only one at the time in the waters, apart from 2 or 3 locals on coconut boats.

Great staff and gear. We rented stand up paddle boards for two hours. Metal drink bottles and dry bags can also be borrowed (included in the price).
It’s easy to paddle across the channel to a beautiful peaceful island where you can paddle in very calm water amongst the palm trees. A really nice escape from the bustling ancient town. We only saw 4 others during our two hour paddle. I'd recommend this over the touristy round boat rides.

We did the bike tour with organic farm experience and cooking class. IT WAS AMAZING! We were the only two on the tour and the guide (Ms Dung) was outstanding! We also got to experience time on one of the circular boats which was really peaceful! The cooking class was excellent and we got to eat in the organic garden which was lovely. Would definitely recommend this trip 😊 and cannot speak highly enough of everyone we met as everyone was so friendly!

Sunset Kayak. Stunning!

The taxi collected us from our hotel and took us to the kayak centre which was a few miles out of town.

Whilst the kayak centre is just alongside the main river, the route was on the quieter side waters allowing for a relaxing and calm kayak back towards the centre of Hoi An.

Our guide was keen to share Vietnam history and route information with us which added to the overall experience. We arrived in Hoi An at sunset to beautiful views.

This really is an amazing tour and should be on your list whilst in Hoi An! Make sure you have a good camera! You will want to remember this experience for a long long time!

Had the best 3 hours on the water cruising through some gorgeous scenery before coming into Hoi An Old Town. Loved seeing it all from the river. Nice to get away from the hustle and bustle for a bit and reconnect with nature. I highly recommend this and you don't need to be experienced.

We booked this at the last minute (30min before the start time). Our guide (Martin) picked us up from our hotel and took us to the start point. We were provided with life jackets, cold water, waterproof bags and a ‘how to’ before we set off. With a small group of 6 people we were able to take our time. The paddle was lovely and easy going. Martin got us to the bridge at the night market just before sunset. The combination of the sunset, lanterns and lantern boats was beautiful. We then had a quick paddle to our landing site where we had a coffee and a quick walk through the night market before being dropped off to our hotel. Thanks to Martin for a great evening!

We had the best guide for our tour even though unfortunately I forgot his name! He had just finished university in Hue and now working in Hoi An as a guide. He was so interesting and always answered our questions and he was also very aware of protecting the environment. We had a longer paddle than expected because the water levels were low and we couldn't take the shortcut but he was so gracious and helped us the whole way! Recommended.

Dear Marie, Thank you for your nice words. HUY the guide still remembers the dynamic morning with your little girl. Exploring the Nipa palms mangrove forest in low tide condition brought a different experience and we're so glad to know you enjoy it. We wish you all the best and hope to see you back in Hoi An one day. Kindest regards, Hoi An Kayak Tours team

First of all, “Hoian Kayak Tours” is not to be confused with Hoian Kayak Center which is not in operation anymore. I was misled by the listing still on TripAdvisor and contacted the kayak “center”. The result was ending up without a reservation when I arrived in Hoi An since no one responded! Luckily my hotel (Vietlong) helped me to contact Hoian Kayak Center where Mr. Long runs a friendly and passionate crew doing something that is uncommon in the area.

On the first day after arriving in Hoian I did an easy paddle and got a good sweat. But I was most interested in seeing the sunrise. In the morning the water was calm and we had the most vantage view of the horizon with fishing boats in the foreground. After enjoying the amazing sunrise and took tons of pictures, we headed over to the fish market for some breakfast like the locals. My guide Kien who picked me up at 4:30am from the hotel was great to explain about Vietnamese culture and gave me tips about town. As much as the water was calm I am glad I didn't go for the SUP because the water is a bit rougher at the river's mouth where we watched the sunrise. I am a novice at SUP and not a great swimmer but it could've been an awesome experience to others.

Besides kayaking they also offer other activities that is perfect for active people. If I am ever back in Hoi An I will definitely contact Hoian Kayak Tours again.

We were a small group of people who did the SUP tour and all enjoyed it very much. For some of us, it was the first time trying SUP whereas others had done it several times before but no matter the experience level, we all had fun. It was great to see the landscape and old town from a different perspective and to steer your own board instead of sitting passively on a boat. Before booking this tour, we had seen pictures on their flyer and website which led us to expect we would be paddling in small canals, surrounded by the mangrove forest but we ended up on the main river. It was not what we had expected but enjoyed the experience nevertheless.

Great way to get a different perspective of Hoi An. Tour begins in a rural area and ends in the old part of The city. Our tour guide was fantastic and had a vast knowledge of the river and its history. I took my 12 yo son who was in a double kayak with our guide. A great workout that cumulates with a couple of beers and a bite to eat. Great value for money.
