Halong bay cruise on Ecoboat

Eco Boat cruise Halong

The EcoBoat is a environmental education classroom, which cruises the waters of Ha Long Bay’s World Natural Heritage Site. Starting on-shore, our hands-on, field science program invites you to explore and investigate the karst islets and caves, coral-sand beaches, and mangrove forests within the Bay’s emerald waters, and learn how local communities create and sustain their livelihoods from this bio-diverse and geologically unique marine environment.

The EcoBoat program offers one-day and multi-day EcoVoyages with curriculum and activities designed for primary and secondary school students as well as college and adult organizations. For school programs, we can collaboratively design a program of activities that aligns with curricular needs (science, social studies, art, literature, English) and which is appropriate to the age and development of the students.
