Boat from HCMC to Can Tho

Posted by apertyx on 24/7/2009 at 20:24

Good Day,

I've seen some references to a public boat running from HCMC to Can Tho, but haven't been able to nail it down.

Does one exist? If so, has anyone an experience to share.

Hi there,

We joined a 2 days tour to Ben Tre & Can Tho and stay behind Can Tho for 1 day in June. I was trying to eliminate the time for planning and waiting for the connection bus. The tour is not expensive.

Hope this helps.

I have been looking for something similar. I haven't found a public boat, but I have found packages with both Delta Adventure Tours and Kim Travel that claim to go down the Saigon River to the Mekong delta.

I have found online references to the ‘Green line hydrofoil’ between HCMC and Can Tho (via My Tho) which takes 4 hours and costs US$24 one way. It is supposed to leave HCMC at 7:30am getting to Can Tho at 11:30. I haven’t found a website or email- HCMC phone number is 08-821 5609. May be someelse can confirm if this still operates?

Last year we got a fast boat from Bach Dang jetty at 8am sharp for about 200000VND to My Tho, but I believe it goes onto Can Tho, but it is worth going down at least the day before to book your seat as it gets very full,
(and to find out exactly where it is).
We came back by bus.

I took that jet boat to Can Tho, and it was really fun (it did break down and we transferred to a Mercedes van). At times, there's also a hydrofoil on that run. To get the latest skinny on the boat situation, I'd go to Tripadvisor/Vietnam and ask JASONTOURGUIDEVN - he's the Delta expert.
