Overview

Indochina Sails’ 15 years of experience in Halong Bay has transformed a once burgeoning tour company into one of the most trusted operating in the area. Indochina Sails were one of the first companies to enter Halong Bay and we rely on everything we’ve learned over that intervening time to provide you with an experience and an itinerary that we know you will love.
The Valentine Cruise itself has over a decade of history behind it and is one of the most reliable cruises in Halong Bay. After annual refurbishments, we are proud to present the new Valentine Cruise - Private Cruise in Halong Bay, our intimate vessel offering fantastic experiences for small parties. With a maximum of 5 cabins and a minimum of 2, our capacity is very limited, meaning that the Valentine Cruise is likely to feel more like a home than some of the other more crowded cruises. Our cabins speak the language of luxury, with a very spacious area and bathrooms fitted with both a rainfall shower and a massage shower as well as a bathtub and a Jacuzzi.
Our crew speak this luxurious language, too. They understand hospitality at its highest level and will aid you in an experience that you will never forget. Join them on the lavish but intimate Valentine Cruise, your gateway to the upper echelons of Halong Bay.
