Cardiff Boat Tours

Local family business Cardiff Boat Tours Ltd operates Princess Katharine , a water taxi licensed to carry up to 90 passengers. Princess Katharine offers the perfect opportunity for visitors to experience the history and sights of the City and Bay whilst travelling between the two.

We have a recorded commentary, which gives fascinating information about the history of the area, buildings along the route, the barrage and the wildlife on the Bay and river. Going by boat is an exciting experience for all ages and a great opportunity to get a different perspective and lots of photos, from the water.

The crew, always two experienced Boat Masters, are passionate about the boat and have extensive knowledge of the area. The boat is warm in winter and cool in summer, with a toilet on board for passenger comfort.

Princess Katharine has earned Cardiff Boat Tours a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2016 and is currently rated 23 of 148 things to do in Cardiff by them.
Board at Cardiff Bay or in the beautiful Bute Park, in the heart of the city and at the end of a great day of exploring, relax for your cruise back.

The Bay boasts a wonderful range of waterside experiences so let Cardiff Boat take you on a trip to remember; soak in the atmosphere and view the beautiful scenery. If you are unfamiliar with the area just give us a call and we’ll be happy to give you plenty of advice about the best places to go and great things to do.

Have a special event, party or wedding in the Bay? Dedicated to providing passengers with the best river experience possible whether they are first time visitors to Cardiff or daily commuters, Cardiff Boat Tours provides a family friendly and inviting environment for all passengers. Please be aware that the service may be affected by extreme weather conditions.
