We did a 3 day 2 night kayak trip in Lan ha bay/ Halong bay, and it was fantastic. We were a family of five, and had a boat to ourselves with two cabins. The boat was simple but perfect for us...

We were able to kayak on our own without a guide. We had a boat that brought us to a spot from which we went on our own. We told them the time we need to get back and they were waiting there for us right on time. They spoke English quite well, which made things easier too. The only downside is, that they told us the day before, it would cost 60 USD to go on our own, because the boat would get out just for us. The day after we shared the boat with someone else but still payed the full price. We were getting tired of bargaining about everything and just paid the full price. Also the beaches you can visit while kayaking are full of trash. Which is obviously not the fault and not the reason of the company and not a reason for giving 4 stars only. But it's worth mentioning anyways.
This was probably the top event of our trip, definitely in Cat Ba, maybe in all of Vietnam. We did the one day trip, and it was the WHOLE time advertised, from 8 to 5:30 - truly a full day of kayaking! Partner and I are fit but not insanely athletic, so the rowing was a bit challenging, but definitely doable. And it was truly worth it. We had hoped to see the islands and rock formations without the trappings of a large group, and that's exactly what we got. Our guide was wonderful, and provided lots of great information about the area and the people living there. He was also very flexible and gave us many options about what beaches were nearby, paths we could take, distances and times, so we could assess our energy levels and never felt "dead in the water." There was a lunchtime stop at an island bungalow, where they were very accommodating with vegetarian dishes, and a supremely comfortable afternoon nap/swim before continuing. This was the experience we were hoping for: paddle from beach to beach and see the karst up close and personal. Absolutely would recommend.
