A family outing, a day with friends, a group of tourists experiencing Europe’s largest waterfront development, or local visitors exploring the Cardiff/Penarth area, Penarth Boat Trips provide 90-minute sightseeing boat trips for all to enjoy. This bright red ship is the longest and tallest of all the tourist carriers operating in the Bay; it departs from the historic Graving Dock and passes through one of three locks of the Cardiff Bay Barrage into the Bristol Channel, sailing farther than any other tour operator, past Penarth Pier and toward Flatholm Island.
During a Penarth boat trip, passengers enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a snack while listening to the onboard commentary providing historical and educational information on the sights. As a memento of the occasion, have a picture taken onboard and bring a camera to record the spectacular Welsh coastline as seen from the water and many of the sights along the way, such as, the Dr. Who Exhibition, views to Steepholm Island, BBC Wales, Norwegian Church, Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Devils Ice Hockey, and St David’s Hotel.
These exciting, fun, and educational Penarth Boat Trips are available every weekend March to the end of October and every day during school holidays, if weather is favorable. Special groups/tour rates for private gatherings are available for groups of 20 or more; a group of more than 20 is eligible for up to a 20% discount. This high-capacity ship, largest of all the tourist carriers in the Bay, carries up to 200 passengers per trip, is pet-friendly, and has comfortable accommodations for adults and children, including toilets.
