10.00: We continue cruising by passing by the Buddha island before crossing the border to get out of Lan Ha Bay and into Ha Long Bay. We keep cruising into less touristy areas of the bay, close to Bai Tu Long Bay. The boat will bring you up to the Northern part of the bay and drop anchor at a very calm lagoon to have lunch.

We spend around 1.5-hour kayaking through Dark Cave, Monkey cave and Bright Cave to show you the beauty of the nature in these hidden lagoons. You might even see some monkeys jumping around. After kayaking, we continue moving to a beautiful spot for swimming, called Ba Trai Dao or 3 peaches.

15.15: We arrive at Ba Trai Dao where we anchor nearby a secluded sandy beach that separated from the crowds where you can enjoy a refreshing swim. 

16.15: We’ll make a stop to visit the biggest fishing farm where we spend around 20 minutes to walk around the farm, a great place to shoot some nice pictures and see how Vietnamese fishermen make their living.

17.15: Enjoy sunset from the top deck on the way back. The boat reaches the harbor around 17.45, from where the bus will take you back to the meeting point where the trip ends.
