We did the 3 day 2 night tour with kayaking biking and hiking and both nights spent on the boat. The arrangements for the tour were very efficient. The transfer to Cat Ba went smoothly. Our guide for the tour (Ming) was great fun - easy to talk to and kept us informed about what to expect. The boat we... More

The whole day was fantastic. We did the full day cruise and kayak trip. Just the right amount of cruising in the boat and seeing great scenery and paddling in the kayak and seeing more great scenery! The lunch was fantastic. I would recommend the trip and Blue Swimmer. The only recommendation would be for the guide to be more... More

My girlfriend and I did the 4 day, 3 night Blue Swimmer trip and we had an excellent time! Thang was our main guide (Thanh guide in training) and they were both awesome. Thang taught us a lot about Vietnam and we left him a list of American action movies to check out. We had great weather (60-70's deg. F... More

We did the 3 day 2 night boat cruise with kayaking in Lan Ha Bay and cycling and walking in the Cat Ba National Park. Our guide Thang was excellent, taking us through caves in the kayaks (amazing!) and avoiding the noisy tourist spots.

Mr Henry was very helpful in organising our trip details including transfer from the Sapa night train to Cat Ba. When an issue was encountered with the driver he took our concerns seriously and worked at a resolution. Our tour guide Minh adapted the sea kayaking to suit our group (4 children aged 9-13 yo and 6 adults) and focused... More

We did the three day two night tour with one night at the beach bungalows and one night on the C Jewel boat. Blue Swimmer were was very accommodating and let us alter our trip to add more hiking. Thank you Mr. Henry! Our guide Ming was great fun and very informative. The scenery was breathtaking!

My boyfriend and I went on a 3 day/2 night tour with Blue Swimmer and had a great time! They organised the bus from our hostel in Old Town to the island - about 3-4 hours total travel time depending on how efficient everything goes. Once we were there we had a great time at the eco bungalows and kayaking.... More

This was a great family experience. Mr. Henry was detail oriented & dependable, and got us to the island in great shape by organizing transportation that otherwise would have been difficult.. Our guide, Thang, was exceptional. He spoke very good English with good intonation. In addition, he was a native to the area having grown up on a local floating... More

We booked an overnight two day trip with Blue Swimmer which worked out very well. Quite a performance getting there from Hanoi with two bus trips and two boats. But it is the most glorious place. For Sydneysiders the scenery is rather like the Hawkesbury, looming cliffs surrounding endless inlets . The Kat Viet bungalows were in a superb isolated... More

A trusted friend of mine who is in the eco-travel business in Hanoi recommended Blue Swimmer Adventures to me. Don't let the laid back surf shack-style office fool you: These guys are chill but also super professional. From the very beginning of the process of enquiring, customizing and purchasing my trip, Mr. Henry--the owner--was professional, helpful and prompt to respond.... More
