First Option: a half-day journey: Cat Ba – Lan Ha Bay – Cat Ba
The cruise will start at Ben Beo port, in Cat Ba island, leaving at 12h30. After a warm welcome, the junk will sail to the biggest floating village of fishermen. After one hour of sailing, the wonderful beaches of Ba Trai Dao will appear, with a majestic view in the background we will stop and have a swim. During this excursion, you will be astonished by the beauty of the Lan Ha Bay which is situated between Cat Ba island and Halong Bay with its abandoned beaches and the floating fishing villages.
After this we will have lunch with freshly caught products of the sea, followed by a moment of rest. Then we will continue our cruise through the Lan Ha Bay and will put up the sails (if the weather permits us to do so) You will have the impression that you travel through a world of millions of years ago with fossils of animals.

After an hour of sailing the wonderful Ba Trai Dao beaches appear, which are such a magical setting that you want to stop there and swim.
After this, a lunch of seafood is served, followed by some resting time while the crew will stop the engine so the ship can continue by sail (if the weather is good enough) into the bay. After this, you can go on a kayak tour which will bring you to a small lake which is completely surrounded by cliffs.
