Great way to see Cartagena from the Med. Lovely cool breeze with sunshine, disappointed no commentary explaining what all the sights were but most of it was self explanatory. Drinks and snacks available on board if required. At 8 euros for adults and 6 for students it is a great trip, time to relax from walking around in the heat.... More

We had an hour to kill so went on the boat trip around the harbour. During the trip you have a running commentary in English and Spanish telling you the history of Cartegena and it links to the sea. Very interesting and a good way of learning some basics about the area.

Recently in Cartagena when temperature was pushing 40 degrees but found the boat trip had a nice cooling breeze which made it all more bearable. Good value at 8 euros for the 40 min trip and you also have a pre-recorded guide in both English and Spanish. Far better than the bus tour which was interesting but way too hot.

Excellent 45 min trip around the bay which gives you great value for money at only 8 euros per adult or 6 euros if you are a pensioner. Highly recommend this trip and it gives you different views of the city from the water. They also sell drinks and snacks on board and they have toilet facilities.

A boat trip around the harbour with a pre-recorded guide in Spanish and English. The only downside (ignoring the overly loud Spanish tourists) was that it was sometimes a bit hard to know about which feature surrounding the harbour was being described. The boats stops at the Christmas Fort (after 10 minutes) for those interested in visiting the Fort.

Trip included door to door pick up, breakfast on route, visit to naval museum, boat trip around harbour, lunch at a fabulous restaurant overlooking the sea, and an amazing visit to the Roman amphitheatre. A company well worth supporting. Tailored to... More

Take a trip out to the bay around Cartagena for a whole different view of the city. Great photo opportunities as well as a handy way to get to the Christmas Fort, as the boat docks here on the way out on the trip. The commentary is in Spanish & English, and gives you an idea of how fortified the... More

I have visited Cartagena about 6 times in the last few years and have taken this boat ride twice. It takes about an hour and is on a well equiped Cqatamaran with all the facilities. You can get a drink on board and lie out on the deck or the on seating. It gives a completely different view of the... More

This was an amazing triip. Well worth a visit. Wish I could be back there now. Just happened upon the boat when we were passing. It only cost €8 per person. Real romantic trip. Music was wonderful. Scenary breath taking. Weather amazing. Company incredible.
