We rented a boat in March 2023 and we had a great time. Boats for U were really good with answering all our questions and very efficient for the booking process compared to other companies I called. The itinerary they chose was great and the were very flexible to all requests. The bilingual host Gina thought us many interesting things about Colombia and negotiated for us during the different stops of the day. She was great.
The other 2 gentlemen were also great, they drove very well and attended to us like VIPs. I would recommend this company 100%

We rented a 36 foot boat from Boats4U on January 1, 2020. I had emailed Juan several months before and he was responsive. I sent him a deposit and our boat was ready as promised on 1/1/20. We had a great day visiting the islands and stopped for lunch at Blue Apple Beach House which was nice. Juan had asked us to send a deposit via Paypal of $15.00 per person to Blue Apple to reserve our table for lunch. I sent Juan a copy of the Paypal payment receipt to Blue Apple. Upon arrival at Blue Apple they said we did not have a reservation nor had they received our Paypal payment. I thought it might be an issue so I brought copies of the Paypal receipt and my emails to Juan. The manager of Blue Apple was apologetic and very accommodating thereafter. I will reserve with Boats4U again upon our return to Cartagena.

This was a great day! If you don’t speak Spanish very well 100% get a translator to go with you- it was WELL worth it! Desiree was our translator and she was very informative telling us about the history and suggesting great spots to stop at! We first stopped on la isla grande in the Rosario islands and there was a small bar in the middle of the water we got to swim up to for the best pina coladas! Snorkeling was around there too. She then took us to see pablos sunken ship we got to see under water! We stopped at Gente Del Mar for lunch which had a perfect beach with lots of chairs! It was a beautiful resort and food was excellent! Next we went to Cholon where they helped us get good prices on drinks so we did not over pay. Last stop was a very small beach next to a resort where no one really was at so it was a relaxing way to end the day! The captain and crew did a great job making sure we were safe and happy all day! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

We had booked all the arrangements thru our Hotel. I had specifically asked to go to the MATAMBA RESTAURANT@ The Aura Hotel on Baru which friends had Highly recommended for lunch. They took us to the Aqua Hotel which was not a pleasant experience. The boat ride was nice, fun to see the Rosario Islands, snorkeling disappointing. they definetly did not take us to the best spot. None of us spoke Spanish which was most unfortunate.

Hello Cynthia, before saying anything else, we would like to apologize to you for not having the experience you were expecting and we hope that we have the chance to meet again and do everything in our power to give you the best boat and travel experience you could have. According to this situation, when you booked the activity with the hotel, it was their responsibility to call and make a reservation at the restaurant for your group to check out the availability at the time. We comply with the directions that were given to us by the hotel but we didn’t have a way to know that the restaurant wasn’t open at the time. That's why we try to take you to a similar place, where you could have a nice lunch as you would have had in the Aura Hotel. Once again we express our apologies for the inconvenience and offer our services for everything you need in the future.

Boats 4 U is very organized. They took us where we wanted to go. Only one thing, they should give more detailed advice to the customer about the islands. They took us to an island where all the people were selling things and we couldn’t enjoy the stay there. Then they took us to the island where we were having lunch and it was a lot better. No one was bothering you! But for the rest, it was an excellent experience for the whole family!

This was my first visit to Cartagena and Boats4u was recommended by hotel concierge. On June 4 we had the private VIP tour of 4 guest and our vessel host/translator/guide Angie made this day very memorable. From the greeting at hotel to explaining the sites and service on the boat. Myself being an experience boater recognize the captain and mate even though do not speak English did good job throughout the day.

Boats4u came recommended from the hotel and soooo glad we booked with them! We were a family of four (all adults). I get prone to sea sick and was very worried when I woke up and saw how choppy the sea was.
Thank goodness our captain Eddin (sp) was well experienced and knew how to handle the swells.
But the one who made our trip exceptional was Valentina. She was knowledgable, well versed and very charming!
Valentina informed us of the itinerary and kept us up to date as the day passed. Everything from the weather to which island we would stop at and she would give suggestions along the way.
Again, having a private tour was perfect! We snorkeled by ourselves and she took us to less visited areas. For lunch she suggested Aura Hotel and it was very good too.
All in all I recommend Boats4U hands down!! You won’t regret it!

The islands were beautiful! The experience as a whole was amazing, I would encourage anyone who has the opportunity to take this tour to not hesitate!! The crew and guide Valentina were extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about the areas explored! We will definitely be doing this again next time we visit!

Rented a private boat for family of 6. The boat trip to the Rosario Islands and Cholon was the highlight of our trip in Cartagena. We stopped at what felt like a private island for the best mojitos and jumped off the boat in swimming areas. Thank you to our first mate Andres who customized a great day for us and to our capitan and assistant who went above and beyond catering to us. Highly recommend this to anyone going to Cartagena.

On March 9, 2023, My niece, her friend, and I took a 29’ boat tour to the Rosario Islands. Though I have done the tour twice before it was never with a guide.

Sofia Guevara Camargo was our guide, and it made the trip 100% better. Sofia is friendly, knowledgable, and a great “traveling” companion. Sofia joined us for lunch, and she was like another family remember. I recommend Sofia to your future guests!

Best,
