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.

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.
Everything was great! I loved that they offered an English interpreter. Both captains were great and took care of us the entire trip. Our translator Mateo ensured that we got the best service and went to all of the hot spots. I would hands down recommend Victor to anyone looking to have a fun boat day in Cartagena. 10/10!!
Alexander, his captain (Jose) and boat were impeccably perfect. Alexander’s communication was fast and reliable. As an avid boater myself, I can attest the boat is well maintained, has a great sound system and comfortable seating. We felt safe with Jose at the helm navigating the Rosario islands and taking us to spectacular locations. I highly recommend Alexander, his boat, and his captain. Alex and his Captain are professionals and made us feel very safe and comfortable throughout the experience.
We had the best day on Alex's boat. Our driver, Luis, was knowledgeable and helpful. We had the best lunch (take Alex's recommendation- one of the best meals we've ever had) and spent all day stopping at islands and swimming. Thank you Alex and Luis for a perfect day!
Alexander was great to communicate with. He was prompt in his responses and answered all our questions. Jose was our captain. He is learning English and took us to some of the less touristy beaches. He was fun to talk with and made the trip a pleasure. Would totally recommend their services!
Everything about this trip was amazing from beginning to end. The captain and co captain helped us on and off the boat. Ensured all our valuables was safe and secured. Ensured we was all OK through out the ride. They was even a lil entertained by the music we was playing despite them not speaking English well. My entire crew had a blast and i will definitely recommend to others. Thanks to the captain and co captain for showing us a great time despite us being over anhr late upon arrival.
Great experience. Well-kept boat. Jose, the captain, was friendly and knowledgeable. He let us choose our own adventure which resulted in catching a dorado, eating lunch over the water off of a gorgeous island, and snorkeling at a secluded reef.
