Overview

Throughout history, the port of Cartagena has been the starting point of innumerable adventures and exploits. Go to sea on our Tourist Boat and discover a different view of the city sailing at 2.5 knots by the in the dock sheltered from its maritime accidents. Castles, coastal batteries, lighthouses and docks open your eyes as witnesses of the military, strategic and commercial importance of the bay. A voiceover in several languages will help you to know the evolution of the port . You will disconnect for a while from the hustle and bustle of the city and you can complete your sightseeing by disembarking at the Christmas Fort to learn firsthand about the military life in Cartagena's fortresses during past centuries. The imposing view of the sea front will accompany you on the way back and will remain in your eyes mind after putting your feet on the ground.

Trips run every hour at half past up to 19:30, this was our second trip in two years and have to say it's even longer and better than last years. Less than €25 for a family of four for almost an hour.
