“V’Spirit Cruises is proud to welcome you on-board one of its deluxe boats for your dreamlike Cruise in Halong Bay!”
1. Discover hidden caves and grottos
Hidden among the thousands of jungle-covered peaks rising dramatically out of the emerald waters of Halong Bay are illuminated caves, isolated grottos and picturesque hidden coves of all shapes and sizes. V’Spirit Cruises will take you on an adventure in the most beautiful cave of Halong Bay – Sung Sot cave, featuring fascinating rock formations illuminated by a kaleidoscope of color. The cave is situated in the central tourism centre of the bay. French named it “grotte des surprises” (grotto of surprise). Hop on board a row boat and venture out to explore these hidden gems for yourself.
2.Kayak among the imposing karst limestone:
While a cruise is an excellent way to enjoy the spectacular scenery of Halong Bay at a relaxed pace, the only way to an upclose look at the limestone mountain is by kayak. Paddle out to the calmer, less-visited corners of the bay, which the bigger boats cannot maneuver, and discover hidden caves, isolated lagoons, unspoiled islands and much more with the direction of your guide.
V’Spirit Cruises itineraries is a perfect choice for anyone who is a big fan of this activity. From the wild and luscious Nature Preservation Zone to the exclusive Lan Ha Bay of the 3 day and 2 night program, a few hours of paddling among these areas will bring you such out of this world experiences.

Dawn is especially peaceful in Halong Bay, and a Tai Chi lesson in the early morning will surely bring balance to your soul. The sights, sounds and sensations of a gentle Tai Chi session at sunrise will seduce beginners and regular practitioners alike.
On a V’Spirit Cruise, we mark the morning Tai Chi class as one of our Halong Bay cruise tour’s highlights.

This will develop your deep concentration to find your inner peace in harmony with nature. Early morning on Halong Bay is a perfect time as it is quiet and sunrise warms up your body. Enjoying the Bay’s outstanding scenic beauty of limestone islets rising from emerald waters will take your mind completely away from stress.

Squid fishing is the most interesting activity and wonderful pleasure of the night journey on Halong Bay.
