In a city like Cartagena, it is almost mandatory that you spend at least part of your time on the water. The majestic setting perched above the Caribbean Sea, delicious fish and seafood, and the long history as a port have intertwined to make the sea an integral part of everyday life. While most people head out onto the sea in the shuttle boats or ferries that take them to the Rosario Islands, you can create your own unique adventure by chartering a yacht.
Chartering a yacht is relatively easy. There are a number of companies to choose from who can offer everything from your basic speedboat to a luxury yacht which could include everything from DJs and live music, jet skis, professional chefs and waitstaff, and even a helicopter! Prices can vary wildly based on the number of people and the types of services that you require but they will normally be between $500 and $2000. If you are traveling with a large group, this could be the perfect way to save money and have an awesome day out when you consider that tours normally cost around $60. Keep in mind that the high season in Cartagena lasts from December to February and then again, our Easter. If you have to travel during this period, make sure that you book very early as Colombians will be traveling in large groups.
