In the evening at Sealife Legend Cruises and Huong Hai Sealife Cruise, guests have optional activitíe to choose to entertain themselves such as enjoying the open air on the sundeck, listening to live music of Filipino band, singing karaoke at Navy Club at the basement, relaxing in the suite, etc. You can try your luck with squid fishing.
The crew prepare fishing rods and shoves for guests to join the activity. To attract the squids, guests will stand next to a light, and moving their rod up and down.
Interestingly, people don’t use bait for squid fishing, but they use a fake shrimp to call the squid. Shrimps has very poor eyesight, they will be confused with the fake shrimps jumping up and down with their real food. In Halong Bay and surrounding area of Bai Tu Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay, there are two seasons of squid during April – May and November – December. If you are lucky, you are able to catch up to twenty squids per hour. When the night is falling down, sit together with squid fishing rods and chat about everything, the time seems to fly fast when strangers from multi-countries come closer.
