Cardiff Bay Boat Tour

All aboard!

The boat tour starts on Mermaid Quay at the heart of Cardiff Bay. Aboard Marianne (their beloved boat) enjoy a calming 45 minute ride  around the local area – the perfect opportunity for you to see the sights if you’re a tourist! Take in the Senedd, the Norwegian Church and other famous Cardiff sights all from the water.
