Half day boat trip

Take a traditional Chinese fishing junk around the Cat Ba area to experience the beauty and tranquility of the ocean sights surrounding the island and Ha Long Bay area. These junks were built in Pak Hoi and in the picturesque fishing port of Apowan on Cat Ba Island.  They operate throughout the Bay of Along, from the waves of Fai Tsi Long, to the Norway Islands, and even on the shoals of Bach Long Vi Islet in the middle of the Tonkin Gulf.

During the American War, these junks were incredibly useful as mine sweepers in the area due to their extremely flat bottom and versatile steering.

You can take a trip back in time without the disturbing sound of motor engines to places where local old-timers still boast about the era of their grand fathers, when the main town of CatBa was dotted with casinos, opium lounges and Tuong Opera-like theatre for off-shore Chinese mercenaries.
