A selection of beverages are available onboard your vessel, however, guests may also pre-select preferences prior to departure.

Two of our overnight cruise itineraries are designed to take you to places that other visitors don’t get to explore. The Eastern & Western Isles are “off the beaten track” or cruising more remote waterways “the paths less travelled….”.

Activities

Life Recreation
All Boats carry on board kayaks, swimming ladders, snorkel, masks and fins as well as fishing rod and hand reel equipment, for use at your leisure at no additional cost.
 
Excursions
The entire trip is one exciting and interesting excursion. Ha Long bay features a variety of interesting sights, limestone caves, islands and secluded beaches, allowing our guests to custom design their own itinerary.

Sightseeing
The Eastern Isles presents more views and vistas. Islands are further apart and you see the scale of the Halong Bay islands. As you are cruising the greatest distance on this route, there are fewer opportunities for stop-overs. However, we do include a sunset kayak, if you like, at your overnight anchorage at Cong Do island.

The Western Isles are more intimate and islands are closer together. Cruising narrow waterways you experience traditional life on the water with fishing boats, floating markets, villages and mussel farms. At times, these are only ten-fifteen metres from your vessel and you cruise by.

The Central Isles are for guests who want to see the established tourist sites. These include Sung Sot Cave, Titop Island and Soi Sim Beach. We time your arrival to avoid as much of the main fleet of boats from Bai Chay, however, this area is popular for many visitors and generally a busy waterway.
 
Our Recommendations
For guests who simply want to relax and experience a true Vietnamese way of life on the waters of Halong Bay, genuine, sincere, “up close & personal” we recommend the Western Isles itinerary for overnight cruising
