What You Can Expect

Can Gio Biosphere Reserve Tour by Luxury Speed Boat

Can Gio Biosphere Reserve Tour by Luxury Speed Boat

In the morning, your guide meets you in your hotel lobby for transfer to Ho Chi Minh City’s central pier, where you depart by luxury speedboat for the lush, green tributaries of the Mekong Delta.

Enjoy a light breakfast of sandwiches or pastries, tropical fruit and Vietnamese coffee onboard your boat during the 2-hour journey to Can Gio. Once the target of chemical warfare, the UNESCO-designated Can Gio Biosphere Reserve, located south of Ho Chi Minh City, is teeming with wildlife and biodiversity in lush mangrove forests.

Make several scenic stops on your way to the reserve. Take in the bustling Can Giuoc Market, where you can sample local fruits and get great photo ops. Then cruise past a tapestry of green paddy fields, tropical fruit trees and water palms before moving into a landscape of mangroves.

Your guide explains the features of Can Gio, one of Vietnam’s most important ecosystems, where more than 52 flora species and 200 fauna species live. Visit traditional fishing hamlets, then cruise the tranquil waters of Giant Bat Lagoon in a rowboat. Your guide leads a short trek through the mangroves to a private riverside location where have a traditional Vietnamese lunch.

After lunch, head to Vam Sat Eco Park. There, you might spot gibbons and monkeys, try crab fishing and go bird watching for local and migratory bird species. See a crocodile reserve (and feed them via a fishing rod if you wish) to learn about the once-plentiful crocs that were hunted to near extinction. Alternatively, take another mangrove jungle walk with your guide.

Depart Can Gio in the afternoon, returning to Ho Chi Minh City by boat. At the central pier, transfer to your air-conditioned vehicle for drop-off at your hotel.

Booked this tour to hopefully see a bit more of the life outside Ho Chi Minh and this tour did not disappoint. The tour crew were helpful friendly and considerate, ensuring we were well fed and refreshed all day. We were updated regularly as to what would happen next and what we could expect and the experience was a pleasure. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone especially if you only have time for one trip, do this one it will give you a snapshot of South Vietnam.

Outstanding tour. Our guide Hao was exceptional. Visiting a local market was a highlight. There were no other tourists there and Hao was very informative about the local produce and products. The mangroves and bat viewing was interesting. Visiting the monkeys and crocodiles was exciting. Our four children aged between 15 and 5 years thoroughly enjoyed the all day tour. I did not feel they were in any danger with the monkeys or crocodiles whilst on the tour with Hao. The speed boat added to the excitement and adventure. This tour is worth the extra cost. This was one of our favorite trips in Vietnam.

GREAT experience. Our tour guide, Huo, was so helpful and informative to share the Vietnamese culture. The whole tour was great but my favourite was the market where Huo walked us through and spoke about the items for sale. Loved the crocodile and monkey part as well. GREAT day! Thanks so much. Would definitely recommend to friends.

A great day out. I was not one hundred percent happy on the small pontoons feeding the crocodiles, I would rather have been on something more substantial! lol.
