Hello, I and my crew have been paddling around Hoi An river for years and found it's one of the best way to experience its nature and local life. The view of Hoi An is also very different from water perspective. Grab your paddle and let us introduce you to this unique experience.

This was an excellent Kayak trip and lovely way to see Hoi An from the river. We paddled through quiet backwaters then along the main river and in to Lantern Town, it was beautiful and peaceful, a great way to see nature. We had a knowledgeable and friendly guide, a small group (just us 3), prompt hotel pickup and transfer, excellent communication, highly recommended! :)

A nice first experience of kayaking in a pretty location. The host was very friendly and spoke English well enough to share some history of the area and make some recommendations for things to do. A great way to have a mini adventure without leaving the city.

From start to finish the experience was perfect. With only an hour before pick up at our hotel, I changed location to a beach some 8kms away, no issue, picked up on time. This is a must do experience in Hoi An and we loved it (my daughter and I)

日本語は通じません。英語での進行になります。でも何の心配も必要ありません。 お互い第二言語としての英語、同じ立場を理解してくれて丁寧に説明してくれます。 体力や未経験も全く心配無し、ルートもペースも全て合わせてくれるます。ゆっくりとしたホイアンの土地の良さを自然と調和し、体験をもって感じさせてくれます。 ホイアンに来たら絶対にやって欲しいとオススメできる体験でした。
