Description of our Private Sailing Junks for stunning cruises in Halong Bay

Following the success of our Junks Catba Legend and Catba Princess in collaboration with Cường, we decided to have another Junk built: Catba Imperial. This Junk was built in 5 months by the best engineers of Quang Ninh and the same way traditional fishing junks used to be built in Halong Bay. Then, a famous designer took care of the interior.

Highlights

Catba Imperial is remarkable on the bay, with his wonderful decorations and his size

Catba Princess It is a comfortable boat, ideal for family or small group cruises

Catba Legend has an ideal size for honeymoon and small family trips

Safety is our priority

Our friend and associate, Cường, is an experienced man. He was born in the fishing village of Viet Hai in Cat Ba national park. He is nicknamed “Cường Mán” by CatBa inhabitants because he has a deep knowledge of Halong Bay. He has been sailing fishing boats, boats for transporting merchandise and tourists boats for more than 20 years.
