2 DAYS & 1 NIGHT // 3 DAYS & 2 NIGHTS
Be a part of an exclusive Halong Bay tour on the Hanoi Rocks Cocktail Cruise. Get away from the crowds and skyscrapers clogging up Halong Bay and see this natural world wonder as it's meant to be seen.
Our voyage takes you on a scenic cruise through Halong Bay and the lesser known Lan Ha Bay, away from all the bulky cruise liners.
Kayak through exotic caves and sail around 1000s of limestone karsts as you make your way to our beautiful private island, Cat Ong, where you'll enjoy for an unforgettable night filled with delicious seafood, island cocktails and a beach bonfire.
Keep the adventures going with a journey to Cat Ba Island to trek to the peak of Cat Ba and take in a panoramic 360 degree view of the tropical forests and mountains that fill the island. Spend your second night onboard our party boat where you'll enjoy drinking games, karaoke and can even try squid fishing!

Everything! Well, almost everything. Your food, transportation, accommodations, guides, activities are all included.
What's not included?
Personal insurance, drinks and any extra nights you may want to book.
I'm a vegetarian/vegan, should I bring my own food?
If you have any allergies or special food requirements, let us know. We can have something special prepared for you.

Just the essentials: Swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, shower stuff, insect repellant and change of clothes for the next few days. Remember to bring something warm for the nights during the cooler months (Dec - Apr)
Can I bring my own alcohol?
Unfortunately, no. Vietnam is notorious for selling homemade/low grade counterfeit alcohol to foreigners and we really don't want to have to call in an emergency rescue because someone downed a bottle of ethanol.
Anyone caught bringing their own alcohol is subject to a 500,000đ fine and may be removed from the trip without a refund.
Can I book a bus south when I return?
You can book a southern bus for when you come back from Halong Bay. To make sure you have a spot on the bus we recommend booking your bus ticket before leaving for Halong Bay.

Our nightly bus to Sapa leaves at 9pm so you have more than enough time.
