For the last 4 years I have worked in a rowing center located in Cartagena de Indias, in these years I have shown how magnificent it is to row in the Caribbean Sea, meet people of many nationalities and get excited to see how sport brings people together. I am part of the Karib family in Cartagena and for 12 years we have been working to create different experiences with the sole objective of making Cartagena de Indias and its surroundings known in a different and fun way. My team is capable of taking you to live one of the best adventure experiences. In the team is Andrès Sànchez who is a kayaker at heart with great experience and professionalism who has traveled much of Colombia rowing! We wait for you to live together unique experiences

Amazing experience! We went around the bay, starting at Fort of San Sebastián to the Clock Tower then to Castle San Felipe. Honestly, the views are beautiful. It is amazing to see the Clock and Castle and Baluarte de Reducto from the water. I wish I could include pictures during sunset because it was breathtaking. We were running late, and Maria was able to wait for us and was super kind and understanding. It was cloudy and rainy all day leading up to the kayak, so we were worried it wouldn’t be as nice, but the clouds protected us from the heat and sun. Definitely go even if it’s a cloudy day. The guide takes tons of pictures while you kayak, so do not worry about bringing your phone. There is a compartment in the kayak for backpacks, (the compartment should not get wet but is not technically waterproof - it’s in the body of the kayak - bring your own waterproof case if you are concerned, but honestly you do not need anything.) You will smell fishy after, but this should not deter you, just don’t plan a fancy dinner after this! Kayaks are in great condition and easy to use! They give you a big bottle of water that is easy to grab and drink from even while kayaking. Super relaxing and fun activity. Would recommend.

My experience was great, the communication before and after the activity with the host was always done in a timely manner. The guide was great and he provided a lot of information about the city of Cartagena and taught a first timer like me how to handle myself on the water. They were also a great help. I really recommend this activity and it will allow you to view Cartagena from a different viewpoint and it’s natural beauty. Thanks again and I will certainly do it again next time!
