Best way to enjoy seaplane in Halong Bay

Halong Bay is known to be one of the most popular destinations in Vietnam. For many people, exploring and admiring Halong Bay through cruise tours are not enough. While cruises trip will bring to you great experience about Halong Bay from bottom-up, the seaplane will give you one of a kind experience to enjoy all the breathtaking scenery of the bay from the sky. To renew and make your journey even more incredible, you can venture to explore Halong Bay’s beauty by seaplane.



1. What's Halong Bay seaplane? 


Halong Bay seaplane is taking a scenic flight over Halong Bay then enjoy the beauty World Heritage Site from your plane. Seaplane has been available in Halong Bay a few years yet it’s still new to many tourists. This kind of service is operated by one and only vendor, Hai Au Aviation. Due to its monopolistic supplier, the cost you need to pay for a seaplane is quite expensive.



2. Ways to join Halong Bay Seaplane


There are two ways to have a seaplane flight over Halong Bay: joining the flight from Hanoi or from Tuan Chau Marina.

If you are wealthy with a generous budget, you can book direct flights between Hanoi and Halong (also managed by Hai Au Aviation), which help you have a sightseeing excursion in Halong Bay within a day. Each day, there are two flights departing at 9:00 and 12:45. From Hanoi City center, you need to be ready in Noi Bai International Airport by taxi or private car, and check-in at Counter No.10 in Lounge A. The duration of the flight from Hanoi to Halong is about 60 minutes, including 15 minutes seaplanes enjoying Halong’s seascapes from the height of 500 - 3,000m. Thousands of islets and islands emerging on the surface of turquoise water will gradually appear in front of your eyes. Ending the excursion, the seaplane will land in Tuan Chau Island then the return Halong - Hanoi seaplane flights will depart at 11:30 and 16:00 every day.



If you don’t want to limit your time in Halong Bay under 24 hours like this, you can totally just need to book seaplane service only. It is a 25’ scenic flight taking off from Tuan Chau Marina and return the starting point after finishing the itinerary around the islands of Halong Bay. There are three flights per day, departing at 11:30, 13:30, and 14:30. Depending on time arriving in Tuan Chau and the time of flight, you can have lunch before or after the seaplane tours. Depending on the demand, conditions and your travel budget, you can consider one from two above options.

However, most of the travelers often expect to stay longer in Halong Bay for sure. If you planned to have yourself a Halong Bay Cruise package, the best way to enjoy both cruise and seaplane experience is combining them appropriately. You can use oneway transfer Hanoi – Halong provided by cruises (or private transfer if you want) then join overnight program onboard that you paid (1 night or 2 nights stays is up to you). Finishing the trip, you will get back to Tuan Chau Marina then get ready for the seaplane flight. The most ideal flight after your disembarkation time is 11:30 AM or 1:30 PM. As shuttle transfer service from all Halong Bay Cruises will return Hanoi right after gathering passengers who just finished the cruise trip, in case you take the flight over Halong Bay with the seaplane, you need to book a private transfer (taxi or private car) for transferring back to Hanoi.



3. Useful tips to enjoy your Halong Bay Seaplane


There are several helpful notes that you’d better remember before deciding to pay a seaplane flight. Firstly, in case you choose direct flights between Hanoi and Halong, you should present earlier or on time at the airport, as the counter will be closed 25 minutes before the departure time. Plus, the maximum weight of baggage per guest is 20kg. Secondly, the staff will also check the total weight of the total number of passengers on each flight and confirm whether all of the guests can do the scenic flight or not. If standard weight is over, some of the guests maybe have to choose the next flights if their available seats are enough. Still, information about passenger’s weight will be required to clarify right from the confirmation email for better prior arrangement. Thirdly, in some urgent cases, you can change into another flight, but it needs to be subjected to seat availability. Last but not least, scenic flights rely on weather conditions. If the weather on that day is not great enough to depart the flight (rainy, foggy, windy, etc), all of you will be refunded with 100% amount that you paid for seaplane service already. Also, on holidays, the fare of seaplane will be increased than normal rates. For your more information, it's easy to access the official website of Halong Bay Seaplane on the internet.



If you are an adventuresome passenger, the seaplane is definitely a unique chance to admire the beauty of Halong Bay from a different angle. However, depending on your budget for the trip to Halong Bay, you can decide whether to choose seaplane as an extra excursion or not.
