We booked the 3 day 2 night cruise with Cat Ba Ventures. This was to be the most important part of our holiday and we wanted it to be perfect. We were not disappointed. The staff in the office were extremely welcoming and thoroughly professional. Our boat was fabulous, made even more so by the amazing crew on board. Our... More

I spent hours researching which outfit to use for our Cat Ba trip and we chose Cat Ba Ventures. We did the three day, two night option. It was the right amount of time. I wouldn't suggest you go shorter. There is a lot to see and do, especially if you want to hike on Cat Ba and not just... More

We booked a 2 night 3 day private boat charter starting from Cat Ba and touring primarily around La Han Bay, where you get the same scenery as Ha Long Bay but without all the tourist boats and more beaches to stop at. We kayaked through caves, stopped at isolated rock islands and pristine beaches, snorkeled and swam. The crew... More

My wife and I booked the 2 day 1 night tour with Cat Ba Ventures in Nov 2016 and we just loved every bit of it. Cat Ba Ventures was easy to deal with via email, they got back quickly (considering the time difference) and gave us plenty of details to make a decision. When we got there the staff... More

We used Cat ba Ventures for all are booking on the Island. The Halong Bay cruise, the national park and hospital cave tour, and the private transportation from Hanoi airport to Cat Ba. They are very professional. If they say pick up at 8am, then they are there at 8am. Their tours are well organized, and they seem to have... More

I did their one day trip today and can honestly say it was amazing. We had a group size of 27 which was fine, still lots of room on the boat, visited a fishing village, swam in a beautiful location, had a great lunch cooked for us onboard (lots of varied vegetarian options), went kayaking through caves for 2 hours,...

We opted for the 2 day 1 night tour with Cat Ba Ventures. Overall it was really lovely - keeping to quiet areas of Lan Ha and Halong Bay, plenty of kayaking into stunning lagoons and swimming. We also bought fish for dinner from a local fishing boat which was a nice touch. The trip was extremely well organised, the... More

This trip was really one of the best in my live. We stayed for a 2 day-one Night journey in this wonderful area. The booking we did via email and Mr. Tung was very supportive and had answered all our questions directly. He explained us exactly how to travel from Hanoi to Cat Ba. And it worked. This was crucial... More

We chose Cat Ba Ventures to book a private boat for 3 days and 2 nights of relaxation and reflection after 17 days traveling through Viet Nam. We were fortunate to be assigned the Dolphin and a great crew. Given the smaller size of the Dolphin, it is able to navigate to areas that the big boats with their hoards... More

We used Cat Ba Ventures to book a day cruise to Lan Ha Bay & Halong Bay. It was a great trip - 30 people were on the trip which was a good number not to many but they did mention it has a capacity of 50 people which I feel would be too many to be comfortable on the... More
