Full description
After getting picked up from your hotel in Cat Ba, make the journey to Beo Pier, enjoying views of the mountains on the way. Upon boarding the boat, enjoy a scenic cruise around Lan Ha Bay, a quieter section of the more popular Ha Long Bay. Visit floating fishing villages where you can see the daily life of fishermen.

Continue cruising and pass the border into Ha Long Bay. Get the chance to see different-shaped limestone such as Pen islet, Sailing islet, and Frog Islet. Stop for a swim in Cam Lagoon before enjoying a delicious lunch on the boat.

Later, continue to Hang Ca, where you will stop to visit a fish farm. Afterward, kayak through Dark Cave, Bat Cave and Bright Cave. Visit the less-accessed areas to experience the most exotic scenery for yourself. After your kayak, head to a deserted boat for a swim, snorkel or lie down on the boat deck to drink, relax and take photographs. Before you head back to Cat Ba, pay a visit to Monkey island, hiking to the best viewpoint to admire the island.
