Travel in comfort on board Princess Katharine, our heated 90 seat waterbus, to and from Cardiff Bay & Bute Park (in the heart of the city centre). This is a hugely popular way of travelling between Cardiff Bay and the beautiful Bute Park in the heart of the city centre. A commentary tells of the history and sights along the way. The boat is warm in winter and cool in summer.
Operates all year round - weather permitting - website updated daily
Hear the history, see the sights as you relax on board with our fascinating commentary, enjoying a different perspective of the capital city.
New for 2021 we are also offering open boat trips on board our vintage vessel Singfly
Princess Katharine is the perfect way to explore the historic docklands area of Cardiff, now Cardiff Bay, with the Senedd, Millennium Centre, Norwegian Church and much more and also the city centre, with it's castle, museums and a vast choice of shops, in a day. Just a 25 minute journey between the two points to relax and "re-charge".
Alternatively, take a cruise from either boarding point, returning there in an hour.
