Description


  • Private round trip transportation from your Cartagena cruise ship terminal!
  • Air conditioned, fully licensed and insured transportation!
  • Private English speaking certified guide!
  • All necessary fishing instructions and gear included!
  • Small groups only!
  • Unique local cultural immersion experience!

Immerse yourself in the real Cartagena Colombia-no big cruise ship crowds with this unique opportunity. Get the true taste and flavor of Cartagena. Your friendly guide will pick you up right outside your cruise pier and get you in your air conditioned transportation to begin your adventure.

Your destination is only 25 minutes from the Cartagena cruise pier and your English speaking guide will give you lots of information not only about your destination of La Boquilla but also Cartagena and the Colombian lifestyle. La Boquilla is a town where the traditional ways of life are still preserved. This is a back to basics and back to nature day for sure!

When you arrive at La Boquilla you will accompany a local fisherman and wade out the in the shallow water. You will be shown and taught how to use the fishing and crabbing equipment. You will get to try your hand at pushing the trawling net and the proper way to cast out the spinning hand net. It is all good fun!

After the fishing experience, you will be invited into the home of the fisherman where you will receive a lesson on how the locals have been preparing the fresh seafood for generations. Along with the fish and/or crab, you will also be shown how to prepare tasty "patacones" or fried bananas and coconut rice.

Along with the delicious meal, you will also enjoy time hearing stories and the history of La Boquilla from the fisherman and his family. Learn about the traditions and heritage. To top off your day of the real Colombia, you can take a walk around the village or maybe just relax in a hammock and enjoy the good memories of your time. Your excursion guide and transportation will take you back to the cruise pier afterwards.

Note that there is a minimum of 2 guests needed - either 2 adults or 1 adult with 1 child. The total number of guests are adults and children combined.

This was wonderful - from the ride out, to the canoe trip and net fishing. But the food, well it was amazing! We only made this 4 stars because our guides did not seem to understand our need to be aware of time. One even left to go to lunch and never returned while the others wanted to wait for him. We had to remind them of our time limits and, if we did not insist on returning I wonder if we would have made it in time for our ship. It made pretty stressful. so, I’d do it again! Delightful tour and people!

We were on a Celebrity cruise and booked this excursion. We had no idea what it was or how it would be. It was great. After an adventurous drive thru Cartagena, we ended up on the beach driving to our destination. We were shown to an old wooden boat and taken out by our two guides to "fish". This consisted of throwing a large round net into the water trying to catch small fish to put in the crab traps. It looks easy to throw, but after 50 tosses, never caught one fish or threw it correctly. Thank god for Ivan. Anyway, after a couple hours of fishing, crabbing, and attempting to stand up on the boat and push it around with a wooden pole (very difficult), it was time to head in. We went to a house on the river where we had a few beers and they cooked up fish and crab for everyone. Outstanding! After eating we were driven back to our ship and another white knuckle ride. We were the first people to book off the cruise ship. They're still getting some kinks out, but for the price and experience, it's worth double. My wife and I have been on quite a few excursions, this was one of the best. If you do go on this, remember, you must walk completely out of the cruise terminal to meet your guide.
