Expert review of Cardiff Sea Safari

Bobbing on the bay at breakneck speed!

There’s no animal spotting on this safari. Think more along the lines of the Swahili translation ‘long journey’. A long and fast journey. It’s actually an hour long but that’s more than enough time to feel the full force of 85mph sea breeze.

Various boat rides are available in the bay, but Cardiff Sea Safari is definitely one of the most consistent and has been part of the city’s bulging attraction list. It’s perfect for kid’s parties and stag and hen groups. Hold on tight, though – this is one wild journey!

Price advice: 

An hour’s ride is £18 for adults and £12 for children.

Expert tips: 
Refreshments are plentiful in the bay. You might want to let your stomach settle a little beforehand.
Parking is available at the pay and display spaces just behind the boardwalk by the Senedd or the multi storey in Mermaid Quay on behind the restaurants and bars.
