Sunset over the port of Mangalia

Boat tour around the port of Mangalia

Published on November 5, 2020 by Zoltan Nyaradi

The starting point of these boat tours is the touristic port of Mangalia. Over there, you will find these boats waiting for the tourists. Usually the entire boat tour last more then 30 minutes and the ticket is very affordable.

The highlight of these tours is the shipyard in Mangalia. Over there, if you are lucky, you can spot some large ships which sail the world’s oceans. During our small boat tour around the port of Mangalia, we sailed pretty close to two larger ships which were docked in the shipyard. As soon as we sailed passed the second ship, I saw another one docked not very far but since the captain of our small touring boat has decided to head back to our starting place, I captured only some distant photos of the ship and of the sunset. This was my first time in life seeing and being so close to such a humongous man made object.

Before reaching our starting point, we sailed right next to the touristic port of Mangalia. This port is quite small compared to others. Back then, there were many smaller boats docked in the port.
