“Amazing Experience”

Two days kayaking in Lan Ha bay. Spectacular. Henry offered all the info and advice needed to plan the trip and make accommodations. They offer so many more options than what is listed on the website…kayak, bike, camp, bungalows; day trips or multi-day adventures. The equipment is decent. Kayaks are efficient and in good condition, but with finicky rudders and no spray skirt (although you might sweat to death with a closed deck, so I didn’t mind too much). Chinh is a fantastic guide who has spent a lifetime working the nooks and crannies of Lan Ha. The base camp bungalows are situated on a private island in the bay. Basic but quite comfortable and extremely quiet and private. This is not Outward Bound, Linbad, or Sobek…it’s VN. Don’t expect EPIRBS and extensive first aid kits or doting, fluent English speaking guides. DO expect guides with loads of local knowledge and a safety network of every family and fishing vessel in the area; a comfortable pace; a few mildly challenging open water crossings; wonderful fresh food. Bring an extra SD card, extra battery, and something waterproof for your camera. I came back with 1200 images from three days and I’m not usually that snap happy.
