What to expect
Depart before sunrise with pickup from your centrally located hotel in Hoi An. A short transfer by minivan gets you to the pier where you'll board a boat for a cruise on the Thu Bon River. Arriving at the mouth of the river where it meets the Cua Dai Sea, observe fishermen unloading their daily catch of shrimp, crab, and fish from boats returning from a night at sea. Then follow them with your guide to the nearby fish market, where you have the opportunity to help prepare the fish and seafood for sale. Soak up the lively atmosphere of this daily spectacle as fishmongers ply their trade. After this morning ritual, try your hand at rowing a traditional bamboo basket boat used by local fishermen and admire views of the sunrise over the coast. Back on the main boat, you're served a traditional fisherman’s breakfast while you cruise back to Hoi An. Following your tour, a driver will transport you back to your hotel.

Good experience.
Oct. 2019
너무나 즐거운 경험이었고, 인상 깊은 액티비티였습니다. 가이드 Viet에게는 특별히 감사를 드립니다. 자세한 내용은 영어로 같이 적어두겠습니다.

From the activity program of the Nam Hai, Four seasons, My wife and I had great experiences about Hoi an market, traditional fishing, and boat. Viet, who is an excellent guide, introduces traditional cultures verly kindly and help to make an unforgettable memory. The morning market was very complicated but Especially, the twisting experience on the traditional round ship is very impressived. If I have a chance to visit Hoi an again, I have every intention of participating for another program with my wife.

Great Tour!
We did this tour in Hoi An after reading about it in the travel and leisure article. It was fantastic! Michael was an amazing tour guide! It was really cool seeing the local fish market, and then the captain cooked a fresh meal for us from the purchase at the market! Can’t recommend this tour enough!

This was one of our favorite tours in Hoi An. Viet was such a great host, he made the tour worth getting up so early. His English was great, he was very funny, and was always smiling. The tour itself was very cool as well-what an experience seeing the bargaining at the fish market. Would highly recommend!

We had a fabulous and good time in Jack Tran Sunrise fish market tour in Hoi An. The trip was memorable with the good nature of our tour guide VIET and the rest of the crew. They were very welcoming, helpful and accommodating.

VIET is knowledgeable with the local cultures and spoke very good English. We can communicate easily, this made this tour easy and relax with no language barrier.

There were so much photo opportunities, strongly recommend for those who like photography tour. Contact Jack Tran tour and request VIET as your tour guide.

Magical experience
This was truly memorable!

Met by Mary, my Vietnamese tour guide, at my hotel. Swiftly transported in a very comfortable 4x4 to the local harbour/shore line just outside Hoi An. Scrambled aboard a bamboo basket boat, with life jacket (kids would love this!), and rowed out to a very comfortable, well-equipped, larger sailing vessel. There were two sailors in charge of the vessel and I felt completely safe throughout.

Mary was extremely personable, spoke great English, and answered my many questions about local life and fishing culture. We sailed out to sea to watch the most beautiful eastern sunrise. Actually experiencing this was truly magical - one of life’s little golden nuggets that comes along every now and again...

I then got to watch one of the sailors dance around in a bamboo basket boat which was hilarious - Gang-am-style! Clients can try this for themselves, but not for me I hasten to add!

Furthermore, I got to reel in a large, traditional fishing net on the shoreline near the market which Mary filmed for me and later sent to me on WhatsApp - unforgettable!

We then set off for the fish market, following the fishing boats heading for the same destination in order to sell their ‘catch’ for the best price. The colours, smells, sounds and drama of this aspect of the tour was just brilliant.

Mary then purchased some squid and prawns which the sailors cooked to perfection for me to enjoy on my return journey home. They were so fresh and delicious! Hot and cold drinks were also provided on this tour, I felt extremely well looked after throughout.

Finally I was transported back to my hotel and Mary shortly sent me lots of pics of me that she had also taken with her phone.

This trip is a photographer’s dream and in my opinion a must-do if local culture and traditional fishing techniques are your thing.

Wonderful close up look at Fish Market at sunrise
Jul. 2019 • Couples
We had a great tour of the fish market, including experiencing how the fish nets work, seeing all the action of the fish market in full swing at first light and having our freshly purchased seafood cooked up for breakfast on the boat! A great experience all around with some wonderful photo opportunities too!

The best 4:30am start ever
Jul. 2019 • Couples
I received a confirmation call to the hotel the night before informing me due to summer sunrise the tour started at 4:30 what was lovely. The ride was on time and then the boat to watch the sunrise over Cham island was magical. I loved being able to experience the local fish market first hand. Then poorly attempted at trying net fishing the basket boats were heaps of fun and the specially made fresh breakfast was an amazing ending. The approx 3hours were filled with amazing stories from Viet and laughs. Best way to start the day in Hoi An. The weather was also amazing at that time, nice and cool.

Such a cool experience with Viet
Jul. 2019 • Couples
We had the most amazing time on this your, it was filled with so many unexpected experiences.

The night before they made sure to come to our hotel and check we were ready and pass on information which was very nice of them.

Our guide Viet spoke very good English and greater us nice and early with a huge smile which he kept through the whole trip. He always made sure we were looked after and had anything we needed on hand.

The captain made sure we could get good photos of the sunrise and passing boats and Viet took alot for us and passed them on afterwards (a very nice touch)

Viet took us through all the markets and explained what everything was and pointed out everything we needed to see. Even down to the funny parts of locals fighting over the best prices and best fish.

We got a chance to try fishing like a local with me Hoon (probably misspleed sorry). He made it look so easy but it was a surprisingly heavy job. Very impressive.

The basket boat experience was so much fun. And we got a great show from our guides. Basket boating "Gangnam style".

They then cooked us a beautiful breakfast and even added the shrimp we caught.

Overall had an amazing time and would highly recommend you get up early and experience this.

Really enjoyed our sunrise tour!
We booked this sunrise tour through our hotel, the four seasons, in Hoi An. Our tour guide was John and he was fantastic, as was the rest of the boat crew. We had the boat to ourselves which was even better! John spoke English very well and took a bunch of pictures and videos of us with his own phone and sent them all to me within minutes of the tour ending via WhatsApp. The boat crew were a great time and made us laugh all morning with their basket boat tricks and fishing net reel.
I would definitely recommend this tour and our tour guide John!
