Cardiff Waterbus Time Table

We run a timetabled service during school holidays and every weekend (subject to demand and weather during the winter!) During the week we may be busy with school trips so if you are planning a visit, please call Steve to check availability.

The yellow boats will run approximately every 40 minutes between Penarth from the Cardiff Bay Barrage, and the Pier Head in Cardiff Bay close to Mermaid Quay. Each one way trip takes about 15 minutes. We can also stop at the childrens playground and Dr Who landings – all you need to do is ask the crew and we will do the rest. Why not take a picnic to the playground and catch a later boat back?

Each of our skippers do a short commentary in their own special style highlighting the things you can see.

 Boats depart every day from:



11.00 11.25
11.40 12.05
12.20 12.45
13.00 13.25
13.40 14.05
14.20 14.45
15.00 15.25
15.40 16.05

There is no need to pre-book, just buy your ticket on the boat. Just £2 each way.

We look forward to seeing you.
