This boat can be taken in conjunction with the tourist bus that goes around the outskirts of the historical centre of Cartagena and is slightly reduced pricewise by taking both. If you also want to go into some of the attractions or museums these prices are then also reduced. First of all the trip goes into the area just before... More

Disable friendly I found it easy to board and enjoyed getting around the deck. We were able to get drinks which made the whole hour very pleasant. It is well worth enjoying all the sights not visible from the shore including hidden beaches and battlements. We have often been around the harbour when the Naval fleet have been docked and... More

This trip was unbelievable good value for money. We enjoyed the breeze, seeing the amazing coastline with a mixture of naval, historical and industrial sites to see. The children loved it and the staff on the boat were really helpful. The boat was immaculate. Def recommend this well organised trip.

Superb trip on the tourist boat. Took you around the port and out to sea for almost an hour. You could get off at "Christmas Island" and get back on an hour later when it came round again and finish the tour. There was a fascinating talk all the way round of the history of the port and lots of... More

A very exciting trip for our grandchildren. Good commentary but sometimes difficult to know what we were supposed to be looking at- they didn't say e.g. "on the left... ". But speeding across the waves a great experience. Took advice from Tripadvisor and brought our own water and snacks. An added bonus was the opportunity to gawp up close at... More

Went on this very reasonably priced boat trip around the bay, weather was beautiful. I'd recommend you bring some snacks and water as it was very hot and I travelled with two small kids so food was a must.

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.
