treasure junk boat
Sailors have hoisted the sails and swabbed the deck. The Treasure starts its motion, spawning its way in beautiful emerald waters. The vessel is a stylish junk crafted by traditions and equipped with comfortable and modern amenities. Its name, Treasure, refers to the natural beauty of its environment. Something fragile and extremely rare that we must preserve and protect as a legacy for our future generations
The Treasure is proactively acting for better cruising practices in the region. We are not organizing an environmental revolution (we would love to, but let’s be realistic for a while), but acting at our scale to minimize our social and environmental impact. We also raise awareness among clients, boat crew, local authorities and floating fellows from the archipelago.
Cruising on less traveled routes, hiring and training local people, buying exclusively local fresh products, organizing yearly clean up tours in the area, promoting the practice of kayak, supporting a big environmental project in Vong Vieng floating village, informing and giving advices to our clients, working in close collaboration with local authority on sustainable development issues, refusing to participate in spoiling the caves and other natural areas (the way some caves are exploited in Halong bay is an insult to nature preservation and a slur to visitors’ dignity)... are some of our actions and initiatives for a more responsible tourism.
The treasure is a one of a kind vessel in the whole Halong archipelago. Based on a solid structure and re-designed in a wooden junk style. It is stable, able to navigate in any seabed of the region and can easily face the rough if needed.
Its giant sails may come as a support to the engine if the winds are with us, they are part of the folklore and give a nice sensation of embracing the big outdoors [editor’s note: absolutely no boat in Halong bay can sail only without the engine running] .
The Treasure is a large vessel, very spacious and comfortable. You will find yourself particularly cozy on it.

Our chef and his team are devoted to offering you some of the most reputed cuisine of the region. The selection is wide and ingredients always local and fresh. Seafood-based, but not only, the menus are well balanced. Vegetarian and kids can be catered for. We strive to make each meal a colorful event for both eyes and papillae.
On all of its itineraries, the Treasure offers some kayaking. Real expeditions to lagoons, creeks and floating houses, around the huge standing karsts formations, always away from any other boat. We use Necky kayaks, high quality equipment, imported from Canada and carefully maintained.
To entertain your cruise, vegetable carving and cocktails classes are available. Sometimes upon request as it depends on the number of people on board. Nice wooden board games are also available.
The Treasure features a very large sundeck that you may enjoy anytime of the day. With a cup of coffee witnessing the transient serenity of the bay early morning; relaxing in the sun with a privileged view at the limestone labyrinth; celebrating with a drink this once of a lifetime moment when the moon rises over the karsts.
