Company Information

Registered Office: Cardiff Cruises Ltd,
Penarth Marina, Penarth, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales, CF64 1TQ
Company Number: 6448098

Cardiff Cruises first set sail in April 2012. Our launch was possible thanks to the success of HMS69 party boats, which was established in 2008. In late 2011 the founder, Martyn Driscoll, made arrangements to purchase a new party boat for Cardiff and relocated his first boat to Manchester to start the HMS69 expansion. Not content with just hosting parties, Martyn set up Cardiff Cruises for tourists and locals alike to be able to get the chance to see the area from the water onboard our boats and has dedicated his career to developing innovative tourism experiences. In 2015 the company consolidated its efforts to concentrate solely in Cardiff Bay.

Cardiff Cruises is a company that was founded with a passion for providing unique experiences to visitors and locals in the Welsh capital. With a range of bespoke boat tours and events, Cardiff Cruises has quickly become a popular attraction for those looking to explore Cardiff’s stunning waterfront and surrounding areas.


At Cardiff Cruises, Martyn has assembled a team of experienced professionals who share his passion for delivering exceptional customer experiences. The team includes knowledgeable guides who provide insightful commentary during the tours, as well as experienced boat captains who ensure the safety and comfort of all passengers.

Cardiff Cruises offers a range of tour options, including sightseeing tours, wildlife tours, and private charters. The company’s signature tour is the Cardiff Bay Tour, which takes visitors on a journey through the city’s vibrant waterfront, passing landmarks such as the Wales Millennium Centre, the Norwegian Church, and the Senedd building.

Overall, Cardiff Cruises is a company that prides itself on providing exceptional customer experiences and showcasing the beauty of Cardiff in a unique and memorable way. Martyn Driscoll’s vision and dedication have been the driving force behind the company’s success, and his commitment to innovation and customer satisfaction continue to shape the future of Cardiff Cruises.
