“This company is not professional at all.”

Reviewed May 2, 2013 via mobile

I booked in advance and gave my hotel card to them to the pick up service. Next day I missed the tour just because they would pick me up in the wrong hotel, and since no one for the boat trip was there, they just left me behind without checking what hotel I really was. Me and my friend lost the boat trip and had to find out in a hurry something else to do in the city. I would definetely not recommend them.

While the trip only costs $6 (including pick up from your hotel and a full spread at lunch), there will be plenty of opportunity along the way to spend more cash. First stop - the Aquarium - is at a cost. Next stop - a dock (this was one of the "islands"?) we were again offered the up-sell option. We had a medical emergency at this stop on the trip; and thanks to a mutiny by our fellow passengers, we were able to convince the crew to return us to dock after only 2 stops. We went, based on a Lonely Planet recommend, but I wouldn't do it again.

I urge everyone to second guess going on the Mama Linh boat tour. Although it is inexpensive, the costs add up and your time is better spent exploring Nha Trang or simply sitting on the beach.

The boat we boarded was filled to capacity and not comfortable (keep in mind you are on this boat for almost 6 hours). The first stop was the aquarium, which was as expected and fine. Expect to pay 70,000 dong for this visit. The next stop was the snorkel stop and "playtime." Which was basically 10 boats on a dock where you could snorkel on a dying reef or pay extra for a 2 minute parasail trip. My sister became ill at this stop and the only way back to the harbor was to pay $65 US one way on a speed boat. This was the only option apparently and the guide pocketed his commission, thus profiting on my sister's illness and transport back to the harbor and a bathroom.

The next spot was lunch, then "floating bar." I'd recommend not attempting to drink the awful liquid they call wine. Not even to get drunk. Then the beach, which you also have to pay to enter, and is dirty and full of people.

I recommend saving the 10-12 bucks you spend and spend it elsewhere.
