Hoi An Kayaking – 4 Options

PRIVATE KAYAKING – THE SAME TOUR CODE: CHA03

Hoi An Kayaking offers exciting ways to quite literally ‘get off the beaten path’ and experience Central Vietnam’s beauty and culture. Kayaking on the river in Hoi An is incredibly interesting, especially when Gary acts as the guide. The winds and tide patterns may make it easier or difficult but we were well looked after even when the going got a bit tough. The sunset tour allowed us to view not only a beautiful sunset but the fishermen preparing for their nights work. The whole process was very straightforward and the staff were very polite and helpful. Well worth a visit.
