Board our specially designed, wheelchair friendly Hydro 1 at the Aquabus stop ‘Castle Grounds’ on the river Taff to the west of the Castle. We sail to the Bay on the hour daily between 10am and 5pm weather permitting. It’s rare that a sailing is cancelled, even if the weather forecast looks bleak its often better in the micro-climate of the Cardiff Bay area. Enjoy an excellent trip with unique views of Cardiff the Principality Stadium from the River Taff, and the vistas across the Bay which proves time and again to be an impressive backdrop.
Please note payment for this service is by card or cash paid on board the boat, but the only way to guarantee your place is by booking online.
