Delay and Cancellation Risk

Since Cessna Grand Caravan 208B-EX is a small craft, its flight depends strongly on the weather condition.
Flights from Hanoi to Halong are sometimes delayed or cancelled due to fog in Halong Bay. Risks happen quite often during January – March. Hereunder some important remarks and backup proposals when seaplane is delayed or cancelled at last minutes:

It is better to book both seaplane ticket and Halong overnight cruise package with Vietnam Seaplane Tours because if there is any trouble caused due to bad weather, we will find out the most efficient solution and arrange easier with suppliers.
In case of flight delay or cancellation by supplier, we will arrange the tour by car and refund the flight ticket.
The tour package is the combination of seaplane and cruise in Halong Bay. When the flight is cancelled and you don’t travel to Halong by car, you will get the flight refund but not the cruise.
Many people connect another flight from Noi Bai Airport to the next destination after coming back by seaplane from Halong Bay. If your case, please accept the risk when the seaplane comes later than planned and there is not enough time to check in the next flight.
