We went kayaking for the whole day with Emily and Luke and they were both great. We specially enjoyed the afternoon, the site is better than the morning. Lunch in the boat was great as well. The next day we did the half day climbing with Laura and Meisha which were also very nice. The climbing was very good but we were 8 people (which is the maximum) with only 2 be layers and in the whole afternoon we only did 4 routes each and there were no beginner climbers, I imagine that with beginner climbers you do even less. The experience was great because the site is amazing and the routes were good two but from our point of view it would be better if there were at least 3 belayers.

Asia outdoors were so professional and were able to meet our needs as a family. Our guide, Kyle, was excellent. Relaxed, enthusiastic, with great skills and knowledge of the area. And very safe! Although we were all at different skill levels Kyle was able to give each of us a memorable rock climbing adventure. Many thanks!

We did the seafarer overnight excursion which meant the first day kayaking and rock climbing the next day with an overnight stay in the whisper bungalow.

The kayaking was great fun with a good balance between relaxing time in quiet lagoons and paddling around the spectacular islands around Cat Ba island. Our guide showed us some great spots and some useful info.

The lunch on the boat was incredible, local fresh produce cooked on the boat with plenty to go around.

The whisper bungalow is the overnight stay in the winter season and it was a lovely private room in the middle of the national park surrounded by nature. The rooms are clean and private with dinner in the evening being great home cooked Vietnamese cuisine.

The final morning was climbing which had some good challenging climbs from a beach on one of the islands. It was great fun although if I was to offer one bit of constructive feedback, a little more time spent teaching how to descend from the climbs would have been useful as my girlfriend was a beginner and came a little stick descending.

Full day cruising and kayaking on sit-on kayaks. Not the most comfortable but cheap. Really generous, tasty 5 course lunch. Guide was pleasant, brought us to interesting spots. Be prepared to see lots of garbage floating by and smell the fish farm nets in some areas. Still a unique setting.
