Kayaking is the best way to explore the breathtaking beauty of Halong. Paddle through islets; visit hidden caves, lagoons, unspoiled beaches and floating fishing villages; and talk with local fishermen.
Thanks to the bay’s thousands of islands the conditions for sea kayaking are ideal - the water is calm, the current is fine and the wind is not too strong.
After some enjoyable kayaking, there is no better way of treating yourself than with a private seafood barbecue on an unspoilt beach.
Within minutes a quiet beach is transformed into a romantic spot with beautiful umbrellas providing shade and an elegant dinning table right on the beach. Our crew will invite you for a BBQ lunch on the beach - as if it were a wonderful gift granted by a mermaid. Imagine for a moment that you are the only people on earth enjoying a fabulous meal under the clear blue sky on your own private beach.
Start with a glass of wine and proceed to enjoy an array of succulent, grilled seafood. The melodious music of the waves will put the finishing touches to the perfect, dreamy ambience.
Going fishing with local fishermen makes for an excellent tour. Indochina Junk is the first and only company on Halong Bay with this programme.
Our fishing trips create the genuine feeling of being a fisherman on these waters, and make for an exciting and interesting excursion for all tourists.
Dining in a Cave
After a whole day packed full of activities, we anchor at a secluded harbour where you will enjoy an amazing dinner in your private cave.
Pass through the cave’s mouth and along the candle-lit pathway for the most enchanting of experiences. Allow yourself to be bewitched by the mystical scenery inside.
The dinner will be an unforgettable experience as much for the delicious and beautifully presented food, as for the romantic setting. This is a wonderful occasion, ideal for a honeymoon, wedding anniversary, birthday, or even a special surprise for your loved one. Enjoy, share, relax - it will make your trip even more memorable.
As part of our ecotourism programme for a responsible environment in Halong Bay, our mangrove forestation project was first initiated by Indochina Junk for the purpose of restoring an area of mangrove that has been reduced by the effects of nature and man. We are helping to create a living environment for the species to provide abundant marine resources for those living in the fishing villages around Halong Bay.
By joining our mangrove forestation tour, visitors have a chance to show their responsibility through practical activities such as planting mangrove trees. A bit of hard work and a lot of fun, join in the activities you never thought you would do in modern life even if you had the time. Join in, and experience a unique experience with us.
