A reasonably priced trip with interesting commentary in both Spanish and English. We chose to get off at the Christmas Fort. The trip was well organised and staff were on hand to ensure that everyone knew when the boat would return (one hour later). There was sufficient time to explore the fort before completing the rest of the boat tour.... More

Well worth the €11 for two people. Spent almost an hour getting a guided tour of cartagena inner and outer harbours. Running commentary in both English and Spanish kept us informed of the historical landmarks that we passesd on our journey. Made the mistske of visiting Cartegena on the day when most visitor attractions are closed. Tip for visitors -... More

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
