Boat charter is a rather costly but super fun way to explore the waters and beautiful coastline around Cartagena. The city lies in a privileged position ideal for chartering a boat, where you not only have the sparkling Mediterranean sea to cruise but also the calmer waters of the wonderful Mar Menor lagoon. Indeed, the Mar Menor and encompassing La Manga Strip are a haven for all sorts of water sports and activities. Taking full advantage of this is Charter Muffy. Based in La Manga's Puerto Tomas Marina, they offer sailing and boat trips as well as deep sea fishing.
