We took the boat trip on a sunny afternoon whilst visiting Cardiff- it's a great way to see Tiger Bay and the city from the water. The trip lasts about 45 minutes and there's an informative commentary on the way. Ideal for getting sea air and a different view of the city! Very

The boat trip it's self was very good. But it was a shame that the boat hadn't been restocked with refreshments from the previous evening. I booked this trip well in advance for a party of 24 adults and children. Plenty of notice was given that there would be a big party

Having walked to Cardiff Bay form the city centre, which wasn't too bad, 20 min or so, a we decided to take the boost back. Relaxing and fun and a great way to take in the sights.

Unfortunately the tour could not take place because the upper deck was in repair and so we switched to another tour guide who was quicker, cheaper and brilliant in comparison to our tour which never happened.

Very beautiful location for the trip, but the top deck being under maintenance in the summer holidays where people would come more than any other time just doesn’t make sense.
