Lan Ha Bay Day Cruise with Escapes Sails is a good option for you to enjoy your holiday in Vietnam. Lan Ha Bay has recently been known as an alternative route to the usual one taken through Halong Bay for its peacefulness. The gently shimmering sea that carpets the bay is hugely inviting; so the Escape Sails ensures that your experience is not just limited to our luxury boat, but also spent in kayaks, on sampan boats and directly in the water.


  • Enjoying views of the Red River Delta on smooth and quick transits to and from the bay

  • Heading through the Dark and Bright Caves and finding a shimmering lagoon beyond them

  • Kayaking through the outstanding area of the deep tranquility surrounding

7:30 – 8:00:  Pick-up at your hotel near by the Old Quarter in Hanoi by luxury transfer.

10:00 – 10:30: Embark the Escape Sails at Cat Hai port. Enjoy welcome drink, cruise briefing & start cruising.

12:00:  A splendid lunch is served while cruising into primitive Lan Ha Bay with its hundreds of multi-sized islands creating a spectacular panoramic view.

14:30:  Our next stop is to the Dark & Bright Caves, two fascinating wet cave systems with directly opposite appeal. There are 2 options for you can choose as below:

+ We kayak through the silent waters, enjoying the stillness of an area uncluttered with other cruise ships.

+ A local will row us on a sampan boat through the Bright Cave, where we emerge into a hidden lake enclosed on all sides by streaked cliffs and their tree-topped peaks. Passengers with keen eyes may be able to spot beautiful Cat Ba langurs, an endangered species of monkey that has sought sanctuary amongst the forested mountainsides of the Bright Cave.

15:30: In the mid-afternoon, we spend more time aboard our luxurious Halong Bay day cruise. Relax on one of the two sundecks and cherish the phenomenal sights of unbounded nature on all sides, perhaps with a drink from the bar. Later in the afternoon, our talented chefs will put on a cooking demonstration and fruit-carving show, followed by a Westernstyle afternoon tea with accompanying snacks.

We will cruise back to the harbour and on the way you will have a chance for swimming in the clean water and quiet area of Lan Ha Bay

17:30 – 17:45:  We arrive back at Got Harbour just as a beautiful sunset envelops Lan Ha Bay. We take the final step off our cruise and board the bus that will be waiting to return us to Hanoi.

19:45 – 20:30: The driver will drop you off at your hotel lobby in the capital’s Old Quarter, concluding your Lan Ha Bay and Halong Bay daytrip with the Escape Sails.
