Romantic Sunset Sailing

Have you ever dreamed of sailing into the sunset with your lover by your side, gazing at a sky glowing five different shades of orange, pink and blue? Yes, we know, it sounds like a cheesy early-2000s rom-com or a Disney-approved “happily ever after” but we at Hi Cartagena can truly make your dreams come true.  


With sunset sailing tours in Colombia’s most romantic city, Cartagena de Indias, we can help to tailor the perfect plan; whether your goal is to charm your new beau or reignite the spark with the love of your life, Cartagena’s bay is the perfect backdrop to your love story.


Many people who come to visit the pearl of the Caribbean rarely leave the walled city – which is understandable, of course, as the UNESCO-protected cobbled streets possess a certain charm that make it unlike many other places in the world. However, the super-modern high rise buildings of Bocagrande, Lagito and Castillogrande are also a great place to stay, and make a gorgeous skyline from afar, representing the “modern Cartagena” with their Miami-esque style. The juxtaposition of the old and the new is what makes our Cartagena so special and without a doubt the best place to admire it is from a catamaran with a glass of champagne in your hand. 


We took out two lucky couples for a romantic tour on one of our best and shiniest boats. We loved seeing their reaction to the sheer beauty of the night. Everything fell into place – the drinks were perfectly cold, the breeze just enough to whip away the humidity of the day, the sun put on a show worthy of an Oscar, and the couples ended the night more in love with each other than ever. They say you should try everything at least once – well, sunset sailing is something we’d try again without a shadow of a doubt. Welcome to paradise!

Easy and Affordable Boat Rentals in Cartagena

Long gone are the days when renting a boat was an exclusive activity reserved for the rich and famous. In Cartagena, there are many easy and affordable boat rental options that will leave you sitting in the lap of luxury without breaking the bank. 

And since the best beaches this city has to offer can only be found on the nearby Rosario Islands, you’ll be needing a boat if you don’t want to miss out. Why not make it a comfortable and private boat for you and your travel companions?!

Whether you’re looking for a small speedboat, a full blown catamaran or a yacht (they’re surprisingly affordable here, too!), Hi Cartagena is ready to provide an easy and affordable experience with all details taken care of for you.

Here are a few things to consider as you plan your adventurous day at sea:


When it comes to renting a boat in Cartagena, size matters, not only for the price, but also for the overall experience. We offer speedboats from 28- to 46-ft. long that accommodate anywhere from 10 to 20 people. While our 30 and 36 ft. boats are the most popular options, we always take into consideration both the size of your group and your budget to find the perfect fit. 


While cruising around on your speedboat, we can make a stop at an island restaurant, where you can enjoy a typical Cartagenero meal (think fried whole fish, coconut rice, plantains and salad). But if you’d like some drinks and snacks to enjoy throughout the day, we can help you stock up the cooler with whatever goodies you need!


You could easily spend the day soaking up the Caribbean Sea and the incredible natural surroundings of Cartagena, but there’s nothing wrong with taking things to the next level. For past clients, we’ve rented jet skis, hosted midnight barbecues on a private island, and ended the day with fireworks. The sky’s the limit!


When you rent a boat in Cartagena, you’re the captain of your experience… Not quite literally, but you are definitely in charge! Our recommendation? Take advantage of having a boat at your disposal and use it to go island hopping. You can make a stop at the party central Cholon Island, make a swim stop in the middle of the sea or stop at one of the more serene private islands. You decide!

Whether you’ve hopped on many boats in the past or this will be your first time, we’re here to help you have an easy and affordable boat rental experience. The tips above are just a few of the things to consider, but don’t worry too much. There’s a reason why our motto is “We take care of everything.”
