Bhaya Legend is the jewel in the Bhaya fleet’s crown, this private-hire boat cruises around Halong and Lan Ha bay on bespoke routes with no fixed itinerary. Bhaya Legend consists of seven individual 1,2,3 and 4 cabin boats, to suit groups of all sizes.

Bhaya Legend is the smallest boat in the Bhaya fleet, inspired by the traditional Vietnamese junk design, Legend is small but perfectly formed. As this boat is available for exclusive personal hire, cruise itineraries are completely bespoke, crafted with assistance from Bhaya’s expert team of specialists. No set route and its small size means that Bhaya Legend is able to access areas of the bay that are less heavily used by cruise ships, ensuring that your stay in Halong Bay is a completely unique and private experience.
Bhaya Legend is made of local woods, freshly decorated with elegant oriental embellishments with classic bamboo and ceramic accents. The rich shades of deep blue and red perfectly recall the mysticism of the Far East. Dedicated private butlers are never far away, ensuring you receive an authentic Vietnamese experience that far surpasses your expectations.
Dining options are completely tailored to your specifications, prepared with locally sourced ingredients from Bhaya’s organic farm on Cat Ba island and fresh seafood. Meals can be served where and whenever- a candlelit meal in a grotto or with your feet in the sand of a private beach is an excellent way to finish an exciting day of sightseeing.
Activities are also completely bespoke but can include visits to floating villages, fishing communities and private beaches. Kayak between the mysterious limestone karsts and explore caves and grottos. Snorkelling, fishing, Tai Chi and much more is all available.

The cabins on Bhaya Legend are spacious and luxuriously decorated with rich colours and fabrics that perfectly recall the opulence of the orient. Each cabin can accommodate up to two adults and one child under the age of 12 and boasts a spacious en-suite with shower and freestanding bathtub. A private balcony is the perfect place to relax and take in the views.


Children are welcome on board the Bhaya boats. As the itinerary is so bespoke they are great for families as you can tailor-in specific child friendly activities. However, parents are responsible for their children at all times. Babysitters can be arranged with prior notice if parents would like some time out and each cabin can accommodate one child under the age of 12. Please Note: Interconnecting cabins are not available on Bhaya Legend.


All your meals are included during your stay and menus will be created to your exact specifications. Dietary requirements can easily be catered for, and you can choose to eat meals when you like, and where you like. A lunchtime picnic in the jungle or breakfast on deck, the choice is yours.


Tours on Bhaya Legend can include visits to a pearl farm, fishing communities and floating villages. You can enjoy exploring caves and grottos, cycling on Cat Ba island, fishing, snorkelling and swimming. Spa treatments are available on board, as are cooking classes, wine tasting and even themed parties can be arranged for groups.
