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.

    Rent boat 41ft Center Console for 20 people in Cartagena, Bolívar

    We had an amazing boating experience. I traveled with a group of 12 friends in celebration of my birthday. The boat was more than enough space for my friends and I. The crew was extremely courteous and helpful during our full day trip. I highly recommend.

    Rent the 28' Intrepid Center Console in Cartagena, Colombia.

    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!

    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.
