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.
A yacht rental in Cartagena costs between $500 and $2000 per day for a full charter. You can book tours on a yacht for about $60/person if you’re willing to go boating with a group. Private yacht charters can cost much more, but on average around $1000/day.
The Rosario Islands are reached from Cartagena on boat charters. You can explore on a catamaran, powerboat, or a small water taxi. The best way to experience the Rosario Islands is on a day trip by catamaran, where you’ll have plenty of space to relax and sunbathe, jump into the waters for a swim, and have a meal and drinks onboard.
Cholon is on the edge of Cartagena’s old town and is the launching spot for boats going to nearby islands. You can walk to Cholon to rent a boat for a day, or take a taxi from anywhere within Cartagena.
Cartagena and the Caribbean coast of Colombia offers some of the best snorkeling in the country. With crystal clear blue waters, fish, coral reefs, and hot, sunny weather year-round, it’s a great place for snorkeling in Colombia.
Beat all expectations! One of the coolest day trips we’ve ever taken. Be prepared to over spend for lunch but you pay for the experience. Chocolate and our captain Dylan were incredible hosts. Would recommend 10/10.
Mario was very easy to communicate with. The boat was as advertised. The crew was the best part of the experience. They were very helpful and accommodating for anything we needed. We passed through Cholon and then we went to Bora Bora Island to party before we returned. We stopped by one of Pablo Escobar's former homes in Cartagena for a quick tour. I would highly recommend this boat.
This was the highlight of our trip to Cartagena. A beautiful boat that was clean and very comfortable. The captain and his team were very nice and accommodating. I will do it again in a heartbeat!
Excellent crew. We really enjoyed our private boat experience. Would do it again.
End to End - this was a perfect experience. From initial communication to receiving exact instructions to boarding to sailing and returning. The admin team along with the crew on board were professional and very accommodating. If I come back to Cartagena, I will without a doubt rent from the owner.
Not the fastest boat out there, but this boat accommodated 14 of our people comfortably. Hired the chef to cook on the boat during our rental which was amazing! Great value for the boat. Just make sure you acquire the location for where the boat will be for your arrival date. I recommend this rental to anyone!
