We enjoyed a relaxed informative tour of Cardiff Bay on Lady Helen. Very friendly and the 20 minute trip was good value and just about the right length.

At £3 for a tour of the bay, the trip aboard the Lady Helen is outstanding value for money. We set sail on a sunny day and really enjoyed the trip. Excellent!
