What you can expect
The historic sights of Cartagena's waterfront are on display for this delightful voyage that shows you the Mediterranean face of the city. Pay a visit to the 19th-century fortifications of the Fuerte de Navidad on your way around the harbor and get some terrific views as you learn about the city's past.
You board your vessel at the Alfonso II dock to begin your cruise into the harbor. Pass by the massive underground bunkers built for Spanish submarines during World War II and get a look at the 18th-century fortress built on the peak of Monte de Galeras. As the vessel carries you toward the mouth of the bay, step ashore for a tour of Fuerte de Navidad.
Built as a critical piece of Cartagena's coastal defenses, Fuerte de Navidad now hosts an exhibit that highlights the architecture and daily life of the fortifications that stood here throughout history. Get a look at the nearby lighthouse that stands over the bay before you board the boat again.
The voyage around the bay takes you past a half-dozen historic installations and gun batteries, from the Battery of San Juan de la Podadera at the mouth of the bay to the Battery of San Leandro that overlooks the modern naval docks. Your outing ends as you glide past the harbor of Puerto de Pescadores and step ashore back in the city center.
