What better way to take in the sights along Cardiff’s beautiful waterways than on breezy, carefree boat trips in Cardiff? Every weekend, as well as on school holidays, onlookers can spot our cheery red ship setting off from Mermaid’s Quay. The ninety-minute boat trips venture along the Cardiff Barrage before meandering into the Bristol Channel and then heading back to Cardiff Bay.
This voyage is further than any other Cardiff tour operators venture! Throughout the trip, onboard commentary helps to identify and explain the history of the area and the highlights in sight. Some of the most popular points include the cult favourite Dr. Who Exhibition, stunning views of Flatholm and Steepholm islands, the Wales Millennium Centre, and the Cardiff Barrage Locks, amongst others. To ensure our guests’ ultimate comfort and convenience, there is ready access to onboard toilets. Feeling a bit peckish?
Try our ship’s selection of snacks with a steaming cup of tea or coffee for a tasty treat.

Affordable ticket prices make it easy to plan a fun, inexpensive family outing for locals and tourists alike. Since our ship is able to hold up to 200 passengers, visitors will have no trouble ensuring that they get a spot on the boat. We also offer boat trips in Cardiff for groups and schools. While we typically average three trips per operating day, do keep in mind that it is dependent on weather and tides. Find out more by visiting cardiffcruises.com/calendar for booking details. We look forward to sailing with you soon
