Shrimp and fish are in abundance just under the water surface, while bats, flying squirrels, yellow-haired monkeys, and numerous bird species keep things lively above the surface.

The only way to experience Halong Aby

From the moment that we stepped onboard the AuCo Cruise, we were treated to the best quality service you could find onboard a cruise. The staff were exemplary and made sure that your every requirement was met. There were a number of activities that you were able to enjoy and sometimes it was good to have downtime, and this was encouraged too. Our awesome teenagers thoroughly enjoyed it too and particularly enjoyed the late night squid fishing! Masterchef was a lot of fun as well! Happy hour from the top deck watching the sunset with our friends and children is something I will remember for a long time. Cannot recommend more highly.

Bhaya premium 10

Had a fantastic cruise around this stunning area on a small boat offering comfort and a personalised service. Boat Manager Kevin worked so hard to ensure we had a perfect trip and was a great host. The itinerary included kayaking, swimming, tai chi at sunrise and much more. A unique experience made very enjoyable by such a well organised tour and accommodating host.

Incredible 3d/2n on Classic 2

From start to finish, my husband and I were greeted by the most wonderful staff, pampered with food, deliciously strong cocktails and fantastic views of Halong Bay. It was the perfect length of time on the cruise, and a full/fun itinerary. Special mention to Henry our Cruise Director and Phuong our Programs Director, who both went out of their way to make the experience so special.

Fabulous stay, wish I had more time!

The staff is so wonderful, they’re super nice and kind, they cater to your needs. Whether you have diet restrictions or intolerances they’re there for you, I’m vegetarian and they catered beautifully. The cabins have a cute little balcony, and they have everything you really need. They have some activities on board on the 2 day/1 night, but if you have time They have longer packages and the off course there’s mere activities too. The caves are gorgeous, however there’s about 500 steps in total, so be mindful of that. But on that note, it’s not difficult to walk around inside the caves.

Overnight cruise at Halong Bay

From check in to disembarking, this was a fabulous sojourn around the limestone rocks and Surprise Cave. The boat was beautifully appointed with all the facilities of a larger cruise ship. The staff were so friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this Bhaya Cruise if you’re visiting Vietnam.

Stunning location, comfortable accommodation

Nature provides the backdrop and Jack Sparrow and his crew provide friendly, efficient service. The Bhaya 3 is very comfortable. Cabins make the most of the space. You even have a balcony! The shower was better than at the accommodation we had in Hanoi! How the staff provide such delicious meals out of such a small kitchen defies logic. Between our group, we tried all the activities - kayaking, swimming, Master Chef, fishing, squidding, Tai Chi and a cave walk. We had such fun! I strongly recommend a cruise on Halong Bay. Book on Bhaya 3 if you can.

Fantastic Experience On The Bhaya Classic 2 Day 1 Night Cruise

From the moment we stepped onboard our Bhaya Classic 2 Day, 1 Night Cruise the staff went above and beyond to make our trip as memorable as possible. Our room was incredible - with a comfortable bed, bathtub and even a large terrace to enjoy the amazing views. It felt like a 5-star hotel room! There was a great variety of food to suit all tastes and dietary requirements, with a great wine list and cocktail menu to match. The highlight of our trip was the amazing activities - in just 24 hours we squeezed in two cave trips, a swim on a private beach, cooking lesson, kayaking and Tai Chi at sunrise which was unforgettable. We also loved the staff's attitude to sustainability onboard with both plastic bags and straws banned as well as many "green" initiatives encouraged throughout our stay which was a delight to see. We cannot recommend this tour enough and would return again in a heartbeat, it is worth every penny!
