What our guests say:

I would like like to thank all of the crew, and particularly Tony, for such an enjoyable trip. The boat was clean and comfortable. I felt safe at all times. The scenery was spectacular. The activities on the short trip were also good fun. Although we only spent 24 hours in the bay, we managed to go in a cave, up a mountain, swim, kayak, and eat and drink well without ever feeling rushed! Thank you.

Mr. Chris Mini cruise

We have just come back from a cruise with Lafairy sails in HaLong bay. That was an extremly perfect sail. Lafairy is small boutique boat which is made of wood, friendly to environment and very comfortable. Luckily, weather on that day was very nice. The food was above excellent Cuong, Vy, Ky, Tom and master Tai chi Ngu made my trip unforgetabme. Highly recommend!

Mr. Patrick T Halong Bay wonderful trip

Pearla Dawn Sails is  exactly a cruise you should go for a vacation in Lan Ha Bay. The boat is made of wood so it looked a bit old but this is what I love, something old, boutique, classic. Everything was so lovely, from the boat, the cabin to the crew: the tour guide welcomed us at the waiting lounge, the staff waved their hands to say hello when we were on the tender ahead the boat, the smiling bartender served us delicious drinks to the chefs prepared good meals. The cabin is quite small but compact with neccesary amenities for a cruise and what I liked the most was the pillow, haha. I loved the dinner on top deck when we ate BBQ and surrounded by the fresh air of the bay. Not only the meal, the traditional music show from the mechanic was a highlight as well. A special thank you for all the lovely things you did for us.

Ms. Linh N Thank you for a lovely cruise

Halong Bay was one of the highlights on our Vietnam trip. With 20 person from Switzerland we booked the whole boat for 3 days. The weather was great and we could see an amazing sunrise and sunset. Kajaking and visiting the caves with blue sky and perfect 28 degrees. This boat has different categories of rooms, 2 really comfotable rooms with balcony. The food was very delicious and the stuff really helpful and friendly. Linh our guide on the boat was a funny person, always smiling and very friendly. Her english was very good and all of our group loved her. We had a great time on the boat together with the great crew and a lot of adventures and experiences.
