Founded in 1938 by a group of fishing enthusiasts, the Fishing Club marina is located in the bay of Cartagena, a calm, sheltered harbor. Nothing could be easier than stepping off your boat for a walk around the old city. Modern shopping centers and the old city walls are only a few minutes’ walk away.

How to get there

Bocachica:

The official entry point to Cartagena bay. Its entry channel has draft for vessels of up to 40 feet and is appropriately signposted. There is a buoy (N10 19.050 W75 35.917) for alignment and all buoys emit an AIS signal. Once in line with the buoy stay in the channel, which is wide enough for navigation. The channel splits at two points. In both cases stay on the port side. It is a journey of approximately 10 nautical miles.

Bocagrande:

IMPORTANT: This entry should only be used by shallow vessels. To protect the city at the time of the conquest, the Spaniards built an underwater wall (breakwater) blocking the entrance. Currently this wall has an opening of about 60 meters wide and a maximum draft of 13 feet. It has two signaling buoys (green and red) and the center between the buoys has the coordinates N10 23.402 W75 34.278 . Once past the jetty, continue east to the main channel, turn to port and through the canal you will reach the clubhouse (approx. 3.5 NM).
