How to get from Haiphong to Ca Ba with a motorbike

Hi everyone,

I have tried without success to find out how I get from Haiphong to Ca Ba with a motorbike.

Some say from Dinh Vu, others Ben Binh, others from Halong City...

I am after the cheapest, but cannot find out any reliable info about times, prices and the route.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks

Fastest is the Tuan Chau - Cat Ba ferry from the Tuan Chau Harbour/Marina.

The time and fare may change from time to time.

Cheers,

John

Thanks for your reply John.

That ferry is from Halong and I am coming from Hanoi so it would be easier to go from Haiphong.

I have heard of Dinh Vu but it’s two ferries. Also Ben Binh. But none of it is very clear.

Oh, my bad.

Coming from Ha Noi to Hai Phong, you want to take the new bridge (Tan Vu Lach Huyen) to get over to the Cat Hai island (which is between the mainland and Cat Ba island).

Just one ferry (the Got ferry), and you will be on Cat Ba island.

I'm not sure if they still run the ferry at the Binh wharf (too far to be economical now that the new bridge is in used.

The old ferry at Dinh Vu port suffers the same fate. Nobody needs a ferry now with the new bridge.

Amazing , thanks John.

I think the ferry from there is called Bến phà Gót.

I would not go from Hanoi to Haiphong on a motorbike. the traffic is insane because it is the harbour of the North (no bikes on superhighways). Take a bus + speed boat and rent a scooter in Cat Ba City.

Thanks Iarsay, but I’ll be heading north after so keen to take my own bike. All part of the ‘fun’ 😬

Are there roads I cannot take the bike on to cat ba?

No, you can go anywhere in Cat Ba except inside the National Park
