Thankfully, the rain in Cartagena does not normally last long. While there may be grey skies in Cartagena, the islands will be sunny and clear skies. We will always be in contact with you to determine whether it is safe for you to go out to the islands due to the weather conditions. In the situation that we determine that it is no longer safe for the boat and passengers to go to the islands, we will reschedule your outing for no additional cost.
All fees, taxes, fuel and credit card charges are included in the price.
Depending on the vessel, you will depart from one of two marinas close to the old city and Bocagrande. Our staff will give you clear instructions on how to get to the marina once you have reserved the vessel. We can organize your transport for you or you can take a taxi from your hotel or vacation rental. Both marinas are within 10 minutes of the old city by car.
Sure, you can bring your own food and beverages on board or we can stock the vessel for you in advance. (See our additional services page for more information.) We can also recommend some great restaurants for a delicious lunch at the islands.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US
We were introduced to Keith from a friend and he got a fantastic deal for us on a boat rental for the day. Keith met up with us at the dock and got us on the boat safely and quickly, he was very helpful with other questions concerning what to do in the area as well.
He even volunteered to grab drinks for us in our haste to get to the meeting point on time. Keith also introduced us to Jessica our lovely snorkeling instructor, we had a first time snorkeler in our group and Jessica was very patient and knowledgeable.
We went around to so many of the different islands. The water was amazing and the company was great. We had a great time, the boat, islands, everything was as advertised and it was a beautiful day.
From the boat booking process to the time we docked back 8 hours later, the entire experience was breathtaking. Keith met us at the dock in the morning with waters and fruits for the day. The captain and tour guide were amazing. As we sailed, they took the time to explain the history of many different islands, and landmarks - often stopping in the middle of the ocean to allow us to take pictures. They knew exactly which islands to take us to based on what we were looking to experience. The entire day was absolutely amazing - thanks to Keith, our captain, and the tour guide.
" Our Cartagena boat experience was nothing short of extraordinary. Between the beautiful boat, the warm hospitality, and breathtaking views it was an experience that became the highlight of our trip. "
