The Cardiff Bay Barrage Aquabus stop is located just below the public, open-air car park in front of the Custom House buildings. Here you can see boats moving in and out of the Bay through the three lock gates. You can also see the sluice gates and fish pass which allows migrating fish to swim from the Bristol Channel into the Bay on their journey to spawn in the rivers Taff and Ely.
A short walk away is Penarth Marina chock full of sailing boats. There are a number of restaurants here or if you are energetic you can walk up the hill to Penarth Town Centre where there are a variety of shops, restaurants bars and cafes. If you are staying on this side of the Bay for a while the Aquabus picks up at half past the hour.
A walk along the Barrage is a must, especially in good weather as it has been designed as a linear park.
Tickets can only be purchased on board with cash only. Tickets are not available from any other outlets.
