4 . Regarding seasickness on the boat?

Ha Long Bay is an archipelago in the Gulf of Tonkin, with calm and serene waters. The numerous small islands around Ha Long Bay act as a shield against large waves, so seasickness due to waves and wind is very rare.

However, on some days when the water level is unstable, the boat may encounter a few small waves causing it to move up and down. Thanks to the unique limestone karst terrain, these waves do not significantly affect your sightseeing experience.

Tip: When the boat is rocking, it is advisable to limit movement to avoid seasickness.

We closely monitor weather forecasts. If the weather turns bad, we will consider whether to continue the trip and will contact the customers. We will inform you of any weather-related changes before you depart from Hanoi to Ha Long, to avoid wasting your travel time.
