  • Try the kayaking 5 stars

    If you head north of Cat Ba bay to Bay Beo, there's a place called Blue Swimmer Adventures. We hired 2 single kayaks for $8 each from 12-5pm. Including our ticket to lan ha bay.

    Great value and nice kayaks.

  • 2 days of Slo Pony Tours 5 stars

    26th November, 2010

    Wanted to recommend this place. While it is expensive compared to some of the other tour offices on the main strip, it turned out to be very worth it.

    Did the full day cruise, kayak, and climb (rope course) tour, as well as a six hour trekking trip.

    Staff were very helpful, making good recommendations for hotel (Nobel House was full), food, and other activities outside of their tours.

    The cruise/kayak/climb trip was amazing, everyone was very professional and staff were fun, interesting people. The trek trip was a bit more difficult, as our guide spoke no English what-so-ever, but it was still a nice way to spend the day.

    They have meetings every day at 6, for people to come and discuss what everyone wants to do the next day, and then activities are based on that. So you might not get to do exactly what you want, unless you're willing to pay a higher small-group rate.

    Overall, great experiences!
