Tour itself took about an hour and was worth it. Wasn't over expensive (24 euros for 3 adults and 2 children). The information was in Spanish and English and took you around the natural harbour explaining about the naval defences and the harbour. Good trip for photos.

Doesn't cost very much, you will learn a little about the history of this lovely City - if you want to listen to the commentary. Very relaxing and worth looking at the port from a different view. We have been to Cartagena many times and have never done this boat trip before - now pleased we made the effort!

After feeling the heat wave, we took this 50 minute tour which leaves from one side of the port and returns on the other. You will see a few navy vessels docked, two light houses and you have the possibility of getting off at the "Christmas Fort" and then being picked up by the next tour boat. The boat has... More

We very much enjoyed the boat trip, the audio guide was very good and we learnt a lot about Cartagena. We bought the tickets which included the visit to the Christmas Fort and it was a plus! Loved it. TIP take the trip when it's not too hot. We took it at 5.30pm and it was perfect!

A lovely ride around the bay is a great alternative to a beach day. Loved every minute...And the younger children thought it was wonderful to be out at sea!

We took the tourist boat rather than the catamaran as the former had commentary in English and Spanish whilst the latter just plays rather loud music. The cost was minimal as we had pensioner rates (you need ID for this) and as there was a wait for the next boat we enjoyed a drink on the harbour. The tour was... More

Our family really enjoyed the trip, we took the 40 minute tour without getting off he boat for an hour at the fort. You get to see all aspects of the harbour and the coastline that created the harbour. Good commentary in both English and Spanish. Both children enjoyed it, there was more than enough to occupy them, whether it... More

A good break from the heat of the city - the boat leaves the dock side hourly and for less than 6 euros per person you get a boat ride with an interesting commentary in both English and Spanish. The boat stops at Christmas Fort and overall is very informative as well as being a nice break from the heat.... More

After a hot few hours around the city we stopped for a beer at the harbour and chanced upon this. My husband wasn't too keen as it appeared rather touristy, with loud music etc. however, easily persuaded, we went on for the hour and thoroughly enjoyed it :) great to be out on the water and getting views of the...
