Tours and Tickets by Cardiff Cruises
Enjoy panoramic views over beautiful Cardiff Bay on this 1-hour boat tour. Hop aboard your sightseeing boat at Penarth barrage or Cardiff Bay, then cruise onto the waters as the on-board commentary sheds light on the region’s rich history. Along the way, learn of the regeneration which has shaped the bay we see today and take in top landmarks including the Barrage and its lock gates, the Old Docks, the Wales Millennium Centre, the Welsh Assembly and the Wetlands Nature Reserve. Perhaps alight at Mermaid Quay — Cardiff’s bustling shopping district.

Get rid of the stink of diesel. Couldn't get outside to get away from it. Not worth the money and there is not much to see.

Fun and interesting trip around the bay in a small boat. Although 2 of our party were nervous, the guide put them at ease.

We absolutely loved it! It was a lovely sunny day and the children enjoyed being on a boat. There is an audio guide also to give you some history. Lovely little boat tour!

Beautiful + peaceful = perfect. It was a lovely boat ride around the Bay. I walk with a stick, but the boat was easy to board. All good
