As one of the UK’s most important cities, Cardiff has a long, interesting history and a strong cultural presence. The Welsh Capital is an ideal destination for a weekend break or an excellent family day out. With plenty to see and do, and entertainment day and night, all tastes are catered for.

If on a short break, it’s usual to try and cram in as much sightseeing as possible and a Cardiff Bay boat tour offers an interesting perspective. Scheduled for weekends and school holidays only, the trip is taken on a purpose built touring boat complete with on board toilet and refreshment facilities, making the 90 minute tour suitable for all ages.

Departing from the Mermaid Quay, part of Europe’s biggest waterfront development – the historic Graving Dock, the Cardiff Bay boat tour is a circuitous trip that heads out through the Cardiff Barrage Locks into the Bristol Channel, past the Penarth Pier, towards Flat Holm and Steep Holm Islands and back again.

During the trip, a live commentary will regale you with interesting information and stories, as you view the picturesque coastline on both sides of the Channel, and look for signs of the wildlife of the small islands. Landmarks are pointed out, particularly those of the impressive Cardiff skyline; you’ll be able to spot the pretty, white Norwegian Sailors Church, the BBC Wales Building, the Cardiff Devils Ice Hockey Stadium, St. David’s Hotel, the Wales Millennium Centre and the Dr. Who Exhibition.

After disembarking, it’s an easy trip into the city centre to continue your sightseeing trip, do some shopping, or find somewhere to eat.
