Depart from Ha Long Bay into Lan Ha Bay: the less traveled, less touristy and astoundingly beautiful southern portion of Ha Long Bay. We’ll cruise through a maze of karst towers before collecting kayaks from a floating fish farm and dropping anchor in a tranquil cluster of islands. You’ll kayak into hidden lagoons, explore deserted beaches and search for arches and caves before returning to our traditional junk boat.
We'll set you up with a Vietnamese lunch cooked fresh by our crew with some time to relax after your meal. In the afternoon we'll head to secluded Moody Beach, where the sea borders two shorelines beneath a massive limestone cliff. Our guides will give a brief introduction, set up climbs and outfit you with climbing harnesses, shoes and helmets. Then, we'll coach you as you climb safely high above Lan Ha Bay’s emerald waters and jungle beaches at the beginning and intermediate routes. In the late afternoon, a speedboat will whisk you back to your cruiser in Ha Long Bay, and on a clear day, your cruise home will include a majestic sunset over the islands. Please be aware that this is a top-rope trip, meaning guides will initially climb and set up ropes on all routes. Additionally, itineraries change according to the season. During summer months we climb in the afternoon when Moody Beach is shaded. By winter, we climb through the morning to soak up as much sun as we can. a speedboat will whisk you back to your cruiser in Ha Long Bay, and on a clear day, your cruise home will include a majestic sunset over the islands.
