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.

Went with Jackie and Charlie as part of their secret Spain tour in Cartagena. Fantastic day out. Great organisation. 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.

An ideal water cruise lasting just over an hour. The boat is roomy and most comfortable. The views whilst on the trip are excellent, and the staff most attentive

€8 and a drink on board included takes you round the harbour in about an hour. Great atmosphere on board with music. Smooth journey too so no problem standing up. Only criticism would be it would be nice for commentary to be multi lingual but thats a minor point. Recommend it to anyone

This is an enjoyable trip of the harbour with an optional stop off at the Christmas fort (which is worth visiting for the great views from the top). It is particularly enjoyable on a Sunday when you sail close to the miriad of boats in the harbour. On our trip we even sailed close to one of the submarines which... More
