Escape Sails - Unique 7 Hours Cruising in Enchanting Lan Ha Bay




Lan Ha Bay Day Cruise with Escapes Sails is a good option for you to enjoy your holiday in Vietnam.Lan Ha Bay has recently been known as an alternative route to the usual one taken through Ha Long Bay for its peacefulness. The gently shimmering sea that carpets the bay is hugely inviting; so the Escape Sails ensures that your experience is not just limited to our luxury boat, but also spent in kayaks, on sampan boats and directly in the water.

Out on our innovative double sundeck, the Escape Cruise also features a few demonstrations as we make our way through the luxuriant seascape. Our chefs will lead an informative cooking class and an entertaining fruit-carving demonstration, providing a window into Vietnamese culture and the light touches of Vietnamese hospitality for which our country is often praised. We also feature an afternoon tea service in a Western style, lending you a slice of home during our passage through this exotic land.

07.00 – 07.15 | HOTEL PICK UP
You will be met by driver and trasfer you to Got Ferry. The transfer takes approximately 2.5 hours including the 20 minutes break time along the road.


At Cat Hai Port, we will have a short time to relax in the waiting lounge before stepping on board the majestic Escape Sails. Here, we will be presented with a welcome drink as the crew announces the itinerary for the following 7-8 hours of cruising time.


A multi-choice lunch, suitable for catering to every diet, will be served in the elegant dining room as your luxury Halong Bay day cruise sets sail. Some of the bay’s more famous islets will greet us while we cruise, including the islet of Da Chong and its 100-year old French lighthouse left behind after Vietnam’s colonial era.


We make our first stop of the day in a quiet corner of the Tra Bau area, where the Escape Sails has exclusive access. The beauty of the karst-lined seascape opens up to us as we kayak and swim through its silent waters, enjoying the stillness of an area uncluttered with other cruise ships.


Our next stop is to the Dark & Bright Caves, two fascinating wet cave systems with directly opposite appeal. A local will row us on a sampan boat through the Bright Cave, where we emerge into a hidden lake enclosed on all sides by streaked cliffs and their tree-topped peaks. Passengers with keen eyes may be able to spot beautiful Cat Ba langurs, an endangered species of monkey that has sought sanctuary amongst the forested mountainsides of the Bright Cave.


In the mid-afternoon, we spend more time aboard our luxurious Halong Bay day cruise. Relax on one of the two sundecks and cherish the phenomenal sights of unbounded nature on all sides, perhaps with a drink from the bar. Later in the afternoon, our talented chefs will put on a cooking class and fruit-carving demonstration, followed by a Western-style afternoon tea with accompanying snacks.
