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...

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.
