What to know about traveling and renting a boat in Cartagena, Colombia

Cartagena, with its beautiful coastal Caribbean location and wealth of historic buildings, provides travelers with some of the best sights and activities in all of Colombia. It's the perfect destination for all types of travelers, with activities and culture to enjoy. Right on the water, it's a great place to rent a boat for a day of cruising. Choose from large and luxury yachts to rent out for a group, or go sailing and cruise by wind power along the coast. Types of sailboats you can rent or charter include catamarans, monohulls, and massive schooners.

Another popular choice for tourists and locals alike are deep sea fishing charters in the waters around Cartagena. It's a fantastic Colombian destination for sportfishing, a fun day spent on a boat reeling in catches, enjoying drinks and soaking up the sun.

Cartagena is a wonderful destination for tours. Inhabited for thousands of years before Europeans arrived, the native peoples fished the abundant ocean waters. Many of Cartagena's oldest buildings can be found in the Centro and Getsemaní districts, with classic Spanish colonial detailing dating back to the early 1600s.

The city is famous for its sugar-white beaches; Playa Blanca is one of the most popular spots to soak up the sun and enjoy the famously clear Caribbean water by snorkeling around the coral reefs. To experience the reefs up close, book a scuba diving charter while in Cartagena, and go out with a divemaster to explore under the sea.

    Captained Charter on Lagoon 440 Cruising Catamaran in Cartagena, Bolivar

    We had a great bachelor party onboard the catamaran Lagoon 440. Staff were nice and we had a good communication with the rental company. We stacked up on drinks/snacks/fruit and other stuff at a supermarket two blocks from the marina. Will highly recommended renting a catamaran for a bachelorparty in cartagena.
