This was a completely spontaneous thing! We went for a day to mermain Quay and whilst looking at boats avaliable this caught our eye. Both of us love boats and this seemed ideal! We went up and asked the staff and they told us everything we needed to know and told us to come back for a certain time. We decided to book the 1 hour trip as this best suited our budget although there are plenty of options for differnt trips including a 15 minute ride around the bay.
Before leaving we were provided with life vests and given a quick safety talk. The boats fir about 12 people on and on our boat there was a mixture of age groups. The seats were bizarre and I definately would not reccomend going in a skirt! The man leading our Journey was fantastic, he constantly made jokes with us and made everyone feel comfortable. The boat was very fast and everyone got a shock when we spun round in circles so that the boat was on its side! As well as the thrill you also get a good tour as we stopped at different points and given brief bits of information. Do not go though if you are expecting detailed leactures as it really is brief!
Would definately reccomend this to anyone speniding a day at the Quay!

“Great Fun!!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We booked this trip as a surprise for a friend's 40th Birthday. The staff were really friendly and efficient, and took care to make sure that you were safe whilst enjoying your trip. We booked the hours safari and thoroughly enjoyed it! It was more than just a speed boat ride; the captain kept us entertained with his knowledge of the local area. Great for visitors and locals (who may not have seen Cardiff from the sea before!).
Highly recommended!

“Bay Blast!”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

Cardiff Sea Safaris booked me in a very (very!) last minute when the boat booking I'd made with another company fell through. They were extremely accommodating and my hen party had a fantastic time on the 15 minute 'Bay Blast' fast boat ride. Highly recommended!

“Hour boat ride for my daughter's 11th birthday”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Absolutely amazing! Much better than expected and great value for money. Well organised and professional service, excellent skipper (Tony) and his assistant (engaging conversation with the children and making them feel safe at all times) would recommend to anyone. My husband and I took my daughter and 9 of her friends, we all have a fantastic time. Very cold at sea (so dress appropriately). Worth every penny and looking forward to doing it again!!!
