Kayaking in Halong Bay

By Viator, July 2018

4.5 16 Reviews | Add your review

A junk boat tour is the most popular way to explore Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Vietnam’s top attractions. But for a more adventurous way to take in the scenery, kayaking offers a different view of the karst cliffs, limestone islands, caves, and floating villages. Here’s what you might experience in a kayak.

Highlights 
  • Discover caves and beaches that can’t be accessed by boat.
  • Enjoy the calm waters and mild winds of the bay.
  • Follow a tunnel to a secret bay at Luon Cave.
  • With the up-close perspective from a kayak, find out how the Dark and Light Cave got its name.
  • If you’re short on time, take a day tour from Hanoi that includes kayaking.
  • Give yourself more time to kayak at your leisure by booking a 3-day Halong Bay cruise where you can paddle out from the boat in different locations, such as Cat Ba Island, Ti Top Island, and Lan Ha Bay.
