We have no tour from Hai Phong, but you can transfer to Halong and join the cruise there. Day cruise is leaving from 10:00 AM or 12:00 AM. It takes about 1.5 hours transfer so depend on cruise you choose you can decide the starting time.

Dear Best Price Travel, my husband and I will be in Hanoi from 15 to 18th of November. We are excited to book a Phoenix Day Cruise Halong Bay, although we read that sometimes it is too foggy there... Is there a way to book it but leave the dates flexible (between those 4 days)? Warm regards from Brazil, Isadora
