Mr Henry was very helpful in organising our trip details including transfer from the Sapa night train to Cat Ba. When an issue was encountered with the driver he took our concerns seriously and worked at a resolution. Our tour guide Minh adapted the sea kayaking to suit our group (4 children aged 9-13 yo and 6 adults) and focused... More

We did the three day two night tour with one night at the beach bungalows and one night on the C Jewel boat. Blue Swimmer were was very accommodating and let us alter our trip to add more hiking. Thank you Mr. Henry! Our guide Ming was great fun and very informative. The scenery was breathtaking!

My boyfriend and I went on a 3 day/2 night tour with Blue Swimmer and had a great time! They organised the bus from our hostel in Old Town to the island - about 3-4 hours total travel time depending on how efficient everything goes. Once we were there we had a great time at the eco bungalows and kayaking.... More

This was a great family experience. Mr. Henry was detail oriented & dependable, and got us to the island in great shape by organizing transportation that otherwise would have been difficult.. Our guide, Thang, was exceptional. He spoke very good English with good intonation. In addition, he was a native to the area having grown up on a local floating... More

We booked an overnight two day trip with Blue Swimmer which worked out very well. Quite a performance getting there from Hanoi with two bus trips and two boats. But it is the most glorious place. For Sydneysiders the scenery is rather like the Hawkesbury, looming cliffs surrounding endless inlets . The Kat Viet bungalows were in a superb isolated... More

A trusted friend of mine who is in the eco-travel business in Hanoi recommended Blue Swimmer Adventures to me. Don't let the laid back surf shack-style office fool you: These guys are chill but also super professional. From the very beginning of the process of enquiring, customizing and purchasing my trip, Mr. Henry--the owner--was professional, helpful and prompt to respond.... More

The excursion was very interesting as one got experience many different aspects of life on and around Cat Ba. Staying on an island, overnight on a boat and staying in the ancient house on Cat Ba. All this with lots of activities like kayaking, walking and cycling to local attractions. The staff were all helpful and interesting.

We booked a tour with Mr Henry for 2d/1n on a boat around Lan Ha Bay and it was wonderful! The tour was beginning in Hanoi by a private transfer to hai phong, then boat to cat ba and finally the trip on the "new junk"! The guide and translator, Mister Thang, was awesome! Always here to show us the... More

Lan Ha Bay is a pretty special place to paddle. As a very experienced kayaker, I had considered just hiring a kayak for the day but I'm glad I went with the guided option - there's no way I would have found those caves and tunnels to paddle through on my own. And they can be quite dangerous if done... More

Blue Swimmer organizes small and personalized tours through this beautiful landscape of Lan Ha Bay. The company cares for people and respects the environment, really all that we need to ask from a tourism company. The night of sleeping on the boat, the biking through the village, the hike up the mountain, the kayaking through caves, all of the experiences... More
