  • Great little 20min tour around Cardiff Bay. The captain was very entertaining and knowledgeable! We went in late November, and thought it might be a bit too cold given that it is an open boat, but the provided blankets made it very enjoyable. And only £3pp!!
  • Me and my son ABSOLUTELY LOVE Ben and his boat trips. We first took a trip on his boat when my son was just 2 years old. After a long afternoon my boy fell asleep within minutes of leaving the jetty. 5* review from me.
