Ha Long Bay Tour By Seaplane

Tour program

Located in Quang Ninh province and the Gulf of Tonkin, Halong Bay is one of the new 7 world’s natural wonders (recognised in 2011). There are 1.969 islands covered by green plantations, which time, wind and waves have sculpted into fantastic shapes.

A Seaplane trip is a perfect way to give you a unique view of the whole bay. Another way to appreciate this magical scene is from a boat, cruising between the limestone karst cliffs which loom like fairytale castles, complete with rocky spires and hidden caves. The bay is dotted with tiny islands and pristine sandbanks rising out of the emerald water, providing an excellent backdrop for swimming or simply being lazy on board a junk boat.

We offer an exclusive package including a seaplane and private car and boat where you will explore Halong both from the air and the sea. You will firstly travel by car to Noi Bai Airport to take a seaplane ride to enjoy a panoramic view of the bay before boarding your private boat in Halong Bay.

  • Daily departure
  • Return seaplane flight
  • Private boat in Halong Bay

 

The Seaplane Information:

The Cessna Caravan C208 EX aircraft are 2014 models and registered VN-B468 and VN-B469. In June 2014, the aircraft was collected from Cessna’s factory in Wichita Kansas and flown to Wipaire Inc. in St Paul, Minnesota where Wipline 8750 amphibious floats were fitted. The aircraft was then flown to Vietnam via California, Hawaii, Marshall Islands and the Philippines, a journey taking approximately 60 hours.

The Caravan is the largest single-engine floatplane currently manufactured and has proven itself to be one of the most reliable, cost-effective and, most importantly, safest aircraft ever built. The amphibious floats offer the ultimate flexibility and allow us to fly to any suitable water or runway landing area.
