Full Day: Hanoi - Lan Ha Bay - Dark & Bright Cave - Frog Pond

11:30 - 11:45: The bus will arrive at Tuan Chau Marina and reach the pier. The welcoming staff will be waiting for your arrival. A complimentary welcome drink will be served with a quick briefing as we set sails into Halong Bay.

NOTE: The bar will be open for the entire service. Water is served throughout the journey. Any other drinks that aren’t mentioned will incur a charge.


The first activity in this wonderful journey is exploring the stunning Dark & Bright Cave by kayaking or sitting on a bamboo boat rowing by locals. 

We will spend around 1-hour round trip paddling through a little grotto and into this private lagoon. Surrounded by imposing rock walls in all directions, it's a peaceful little corner for you to relax. The tour guide will tell the folklore of Halong Bay before paddling back to the boat.

Hello, I am interested your day cruise but I am not sure if and what kind of transport is included in the price for 99 USD for the 24/11/2023 for one person. On one side it is written that the price includes "Round–trip bus transfers using highway" but later on there is the following note "NOTE: The transfer service is up to your request. It's excluded from the cruise's price." So, could you please clarify this to me. 

@Pedro Montero:

We use limousine shuttle bus 18 seats.
