We done the 2 day one night tour, staying on floating fish farm homestay. Our guide, Thong was fantastic, really helpful and informative. The kayak tour on the first day was really special, only the booze cruise that turned up, slightly ruined the tranquility with the loud pop music. Food was great at the homestay. The following morning we set... More

We wanted to do a one-day kayaking tour by ourselves, so we rented a double kayak at Blue Swimmer for 25 dollar. A very reasonable price considering kayaking is 25 dollar per person on the Castaway Island for example. With really bad kayaks... Our one was in good condition, we got life jackets and a dry bag, too. Free of... More

Fantastic experience, I booked as a solo kayaker on the guided day trip and found myself the only one booked. This meant that I had my own private tour the islands. My guide Minh was great, he picked me up and dropped me back at my hotel and was more than happy to chat throughout the day on all sorts... More

Just paid $140 USD for a 3 day/2 night stay, and it was well worth the splurge! We had a private tour guide Tong who picked us up in the city, and took us via a water taxi to their private island. There were probably no more than 20 people on the whole island each of us staying in little... More

We did a two day, one night excursion where we kayaked and went swimming on day one then relaxed at a small beach with a few bungalows. We had a family style, wonderful dinner, and enjoyed our private bungalow that evening. On day two we enjoyed a family style breakfast and then kayaked back to Cat Ba Island, biked into... More

We recently did the 3 days 2 nights Eco-bungalow/Fishing junk trip. I would say our experience with Blue Swimmer was just okay. There seemed to be a lot of email correspondence in order to book the trip & I never felt that details were clearly communicated. In addition I was required to do a bank transfer to put down a...

My family and I recently went on Blue Swimmers Adventures Day Tour of Lan Ha Bay. It was really great and a really fun way to see the sights and get the feeling of Ha Long Bay without the massive amount of tourists and garbage that Ha Long has. The office is located right in Ben Beo wharf where you... More

We booked a two night, three day tour of Cat Ba Islands In April after Blue Swimmers were recommended by a friend and every aspect was brilliant! I had a lot of questions and emails in advance and each one was answered promptly. It ended up just being the two of us on the tour and our guide, Minh, was... More

We had the most fantastic 2 day/1 night tour with Blue Swimmer. Mr Henry the tour operator was very helpful in providing information for us and helping us book a trip quite last minute. Our tour guide Thang was absolutely brilliant - such a friendly, nice guy it was a pleasure to spend time with him. He was there to... More

Me and my boyfriend had one morning left in Cat Ba so did not have time for a full tour. We rented a double kayak instead and went around the bay without a guide. We didn't need to book and the staff were friendly and accommodating. They give you a map & waterproof bag. The bay was easy to navigate... More
