2.5-hour Sunset River Cruise and Basket Boat Rowing in Hoi An
From US$45.00
Set out for the Thu Bon River during a sunset cruise by riverboat, then transfer to a bamboo basket boat while you help row and cast nets with local fishermen. This guided 2.5-hour evening tour departs hotels in Hoi An Ancient Town and includes a refreshing beer or soft drink.
What to Expect

Start your 2.5-hour tour with hotel pickup from Hoi An Ancient Town in the late afternoon. It’s a brief minivan transfer to the pier where you’ll board a riverboat for a sunset cruise.

Swap the vessel for a bamboo basket boat and have a chance to try your hand at rowing along the coast. Join in the evening’s activities including learning from local fishermen the techniques of round-net and cast-net fishing.

Back aboard the riverboat, journey to the mouth of the Thu Bon River where it meets the Cua Dai Sea. Savor the sunset while you refresh with a chilled beer or soft drink. Once you arrive back at the pier, a driver will return you to your hotel in Hoi An.

Fun and informative tour with Lily and the Jack Tran crew!

Our tour guide Lily was a BLAST as well as the rest of the crew. We enjoyed seeing the "fishing" industry in Hoi An as well as parts of the Thu Bon River you can't access from the mainland. We started out with a little...More
