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.

Maicky is a great captain and Miguel is a great cook and mate. Maicky speaks English well. He is young but a confident skipper. Gives good advise and is great companion. We enjoyed our 2 days sailing from Cartagena to Rosario Islands and back. We sailed in late November and weather was great.
4 perfect days. Great fresh food. Amazing crew. Getting off the boat happened fast at a public doc and we weren’t expecting that, so be ready before you get into the docs.
The entire booking experience and service was excellent. Jose was very professional and responded quickly to all questions and concerns. I would definitely do business with Jose again. The boat was clean, our captain and his assistant was knowledgeable , helpful and very professional. The boat was 💯 as advertised and the memories we created going out to Rosario Islands and Cholon were amazing. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to create a unique and unforgettable experience.
My group of 9 had an absolutely phenomenal experience. The crew of Mike & Harold exceeded our expectations. Friendly, knowledgeable and they even helped us translate with our taxi driver for pickup. This trip was to celebrate my sister's 40th birthday and it did not disappoint. We would definitely do this again!!
Had a great time. The crew was polite and professional. They went the extra mile for our comfort and satisfaction.
Jose was an amazing host! Communication was thorough and he made it very easy to book through him. The catamaran was in excellent shape and was spacious enough for all 15 of my friends and family. The staff on board were incredibly attentive and friendly! Over all we had a blast and would recommend this company to any person looking for a fun boat day.
