Tour program:

04.30 AM – Pick up from your hotel to our kayak station in Cam Thanh. After a briefing on paddle safety and the area you will be kayaking, we’ll set off towards Cua Dai bridge to catch up with an amazing view of the sun as it rises over the ocean (weather permits).

Enjoy yourself in the pure sunrise moments as long as you wish, then with some short strokes we’ll arrive at a local fishing market. We’ll disembark for a walk through the bustling market to a local shop where we all sit down for a local breakfast and café.

On the way back, we’ll paddle through a coco-palm island for a quick view of the unique ecosystem in Hoi An. The sunrise paddle is an experience not to be missed when you are in Hoi An!
