Cardiff Bay Barrage has created a fantastic waterfront and huge freshwater lake. It’s an attractive destination for work and leisure and its link with the River Taff and River Ely has provided another way to travel into and around Cardiff.
Three services run in Cardiff. Both provide regular services from Mermaid Quay. Water services include:
Cardiff Aquabus runs a scheduled service from Mermaid Quay to the city centre 7 days a week with the first service leaving Mermaid Quay at 1030 then ½ past the hour until 4.30pm.
Services depart the city centre (castle grounds) on the hour with the first leaving at 11.00 am and the last at 5pm.
Services are subject to change dependent upon river levels, flows and weather conditions.
