Every day, departure across the Mekong delta, either way

Join in on one of our short trips, Cần Thơ - Cái Bè and Cái Bè - Cần Thơ any day.

They are our most classic trips, and they sail across the Mekong delta rather than upstream or downstream, so they keep you on smaller riverways, in touch with a constantly evolving scenery. If you are unsure about which itinerary to take, believe us and pick one of these two.

Longer trips

Between Cái Bè and Cần Thơ

Make the best of the smaller waterways and take a return trip across the delta, Cái Bè - Cần Thơ - Cái Bè, departing every day. The itinerary is retracing its steps, but at different times in the day, and as part of the trip is run at night, there is always something on the way back that you did not see on the way to. A loop also makes the road transfers shorter from/to Ho Chi Minh city.
