3 days - The Auco Cruise

The Au Co ship is setting new standards of safety and luxury in the Gulf of Tonkin and setting herself apart from other Halong Bay Cruises. Her impressive external steel structure belies the innovative and luxurious Oriental design to be found within.

In the Gulf of Tonkin, we’ve found the ‘location, location, location’. But aboard The Au Co itself, we’ve created ‘space, space, and more space’.
The ship is a remarkable 55.29m in length and 10.43m in width. Each of our 32 spacious cabins has its own private balcony or terrace – allowing unparalleled private views of the surrounding seascape. On the upper decks, our elegant restaurant and open-air bars are designed along principles of Feng Shui (or in Vietnamese ‘Phong Thuy’) to heighten our passengers’ sense of connection with the wonderful environment of the surrounding Gulf of Tonkin, as well as giving them a taste of the Orient and Vietnamese culture.
Through our innovative use of space, design features, and luxurious attention to detail, we aim to give our passengers a truly unique cruise experience.
But what exactly is it that makes The Au Co a lifetime experience? For every cruise, The Au Co pledges the following:
  • a unique route – our three day two night cruise is the first of its kind, offering passengers the opportunity to explore three bays, including Halong Bay, and Cat Ba Island, discovering each of these exciting destinations through a variety of excursions and activities.
  • state of the art design – the ship herself not only features the latest safety features but is also designed throughout to give a sense of space and luxury, enhancing the cruise experience .
  • a cultural experience – from the decoration of the ship, to the quality of our dining service, through to the range of activities available, The Au Co is designed to allow our passengers to get a true sense of Vietnam and experience a taste of the Orient .
  • a responsible cruise – we aim to preserve the beauty of the Gulf of Tonkin for future generations by minimising the impact on the local environment, operating under the concept of sustainable tourism, and supporting local communities.


The Au Co is a unique Vietnam cruise. Our three day two night cruise is the first of its kind, offering passengers the opportunity to explore three bays, including Halong Bay, and Cat Ba Island.

During your three day voyage you will not only journey through the natural wonders of UNESCO’s World Heritage Site, Halong Bay, but uniquely you will also have the opportunity to discover the Gulf of Tonkin’s adjacent Bays of Lan Ha and Bai Tu Long, both relatively unexplored by other tour ships. Here, you will have a chance to swim or kayak safely in remote lagoons and experience the way of life of the locals inhabiting a floating fishing village. On Cat Ba Island, with its renowned National Park, you will have opportunities to walk or cycle through the rainforest, or visit a traditional village and meet local fishermen.
