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!

Value for money

Price advice

Expert tips
