Used this to get back from the docks to the city. A very pleasant journey viewing the scenery that you do not see walking.

Took my 5 year old nephew in this boat ride from Cardiff bay to Bute park. Cost was £4 for an adult and £2 for a child. This was a lovely trip with good views and a audio guide telling the history. The weather wasn’t great but we still enjoyed it.

Great Aquabus trip from Mermaid Quay back up the river to Bute Park near Sophia Gardens. Highlight was seeing a cormorant catch an eel!

The boat tour ride from the city center to the bay was reasonably priced. A one way trip is £4 and it’s twice that amount for a return trip.
The ride itself is quite smooth and the waters are relatively calm. There was a bit of wildlife to see, particularly ducks. The voice over commentary was well timed and gave a bit of the history of the landmarks along the route. It was nice ride overall.

I visited Cardiff for only two days. So I took the boat tour with "Princess Katharine''. That tour is maybe short, but the best introduction in Cardiff, before walking itself!
