There are some trails in the park so if you have more time to discover cat ba island than only seeing the bay, you can go there. On some of them guide will be useless.

Beautiful view over the green hills/mountains at the viewpoint and top (few minutes more to get there). They said it takes you 1 hr to get to the top, but in 30-40 minutes it is possible for faster walkers.

We weren’t the most fit people, but we made it to the top with some struggle! We lost one in the group on the way up and we were definitely challenged but we made it to the top!! The view took my breath away.

Yeah I saw people on our ferry with motorbikes and scooters, I'm not sure how much it would cost or whether you need to get the ticket somewhere else
