Day 2: Halong Bay -Lan Ha Bay – Cat Ba Island

AM: Breakfast on boat

Today, you would go further to another side of Ha long by another boat, paddle and play in LAN Ha Bay then end up the day at an Eco Lodge in Cat Ba Island

Lan Ha Bay –Stunning Bay!

We start rock-n-roll right after your breakfast by getting on a kayaking support boat that comes from Cat Ba Island and traveling to new corners of the bay.

Along the cruising way, we go through the famous Frog and Chop Stick Islands, as well as Cua Van Floating Village. The boat will stop at around 10h00, and then it is your paddling time. Before making a very first stroke, our kayaking expert will show you all the useful techniques and safety guidelines to have fun on your kayak. As being guided, you will have a round trip paddling to different corners, passing fishing villages, beaches, and lagoons.

You’re properly paddling for about 2 hours then break on a private beach, where you are free to swim or just have sunbath… all up to you. We have lunch here, on the beach.

Kayak Activity

PM: After lunch, you can keep swimming or just relax. This afternoon we have about 2 more hours paddling to see other places, by now you are a kayaking expert. It depends on tidal permission (4 meters difference), for our guide to lead you through Ba Do Cave with your kayak, to see a lagoon inside, and it would be an unforgettable experience of your lifetime. Otherwise, passing by this area is worth traveling that far.

There is a famous Turtle Island, which travelers on other tours can only imagine. Lucky groups may witness a family of Cat Ba Languor (Golden-headed Languor) – an endemic primate eating leaves on trees nearby.

The support boat will pick you up at the end of a kayaking route, and take you to Beo Pier of Cat Ba National Park. We will pass by Monkey Island and Cai Beo Fishing Village before hitting Cat Ba.
