En route to Halong, we will pull over at a Pearl workshop to see how this precious gem is collected from the bay and refined into luxurious jewellery.

11.45 - 12.00: Step Aboard your Halong Bay 6-Hour Day Cruise

We arrive at Tuan Chau Harbour in Halong city and board the ship. Your 6-hour day cruise in Halong Bay starts here with a welcome drink and a quick cruise briefing by the crew.

12.40: Lunch Service

After some relaxation time, head to the restaurant for a delicious lunch of local specialties. Our cruise passes some of Halong's most recognisable limestone towers as they rise out of the emerald sea. Take in these sights from our wonderful sundeck and the panoramic views it affords.

14.00: Kayaking or Sampan Boat Ride at Luon Cave

Our first stop of the tour is Luon Cave, a wonderful tunnel of water that provides exquisite photo opportunities. You will be able to choose between a kayak and a local rowing boat for exploration, both of which offer excellent views of Halong’s magnificent geology up close. Alternatively, continue your relaxation on the sundeck of the boat as we make this 1-hour stop.

15.00: Exploring Sung Sot Cave

Nearby Luon Cave, we find another example of Halong's incredible rock history in another of its limestone caverns. We have about 1 hour to explore Sung Sot Cave, which translates to the Surprising Cave in English. Follow the guide around the complex interior, where stalactites and stalagmites demonstrate marvellous shapes and give the cave its whimsical name. Hear about the local legends of each rock and their roles in Vietnamese folk stories.

As our 6-hour Halong Bay cruise enters its final hour, we return to the ship and begin our cruise back to the harbour.
