Overview

When visiting Cartagena there are two wonders no one should miss, The famous Old City and the astonishing Islas del Rosario (only a 20 minute boat-ride from Cartagena). These islands have crystal clear & turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and the most important coral reefs on the Colombian Caribbean coast. Our company was founded on the premises to provide the finest option when visiting and cruising the islands. We offer comfortable private boats and yachts that are professionally crewed (captain & assistant), while providing top-notch customer service. Rely on us and let us host you. Boating Cartagena is the way to go when chartering a boat in Cartagena – Colombia. We host, you relax!
