Love the whole experience!

Our guide, Viet and his team were super!! The entire experience from hotel pick-up to drop off was first class! We had a wonderful time learning to fish, cast the fishing net, visit a fisherman on a remote island, ride and paddle a round boat AND the most incredible vegetarian lunch prepared and consumed on the boat! Bravo to Captain Cuc for his excellent culinary skills!
