Reasonably priced trip from park to bay with audio guide to history and places on route. About 30 minute trip one way or you can stay aboard for round trip. Very informative, even saw kingfisher fly by.

Go into Bute park in the centre of Cardiff next to and behind Cardiff Castle. The entrance is on the A4161 road. On entering the park, on the right is the Pettigrew Tea Rooms, turn left walk over to the river and you can get the boat there. When you enter the park there are signs for the boats on your left. I hope this helps.
