Boat Excursions or Catamaran Trips in Lanzarote

Which is the right boat for you?

When strolling through a harbor, you quickly find that there are countless different types of boats. You wouldn't think so, but each type of boat differs significantly from the other. The behavior at sea, the equipment and the type of drive are just a few examples of a long list of differences. Below you will find an overview of the boat types available in Lanzarote and their specific characteristics. This will help you to choose the right boat type for yourself and ensure that your trip at sea will be unforgettable.

The Monohull Yacht (Mono)

Everyone knows this classic boat shape. The one hull is the only space, which houses machines, cabins and, sometimes also storage rooms. The control bridge and any possible superstructures are situated on the ship deck that closes the hull. Wave resistance and draft are bigger, with such yachts, so that the waves can cause the boat to sway more. With a travel tablet, however, you shouldn't really have to care about this detail.

The Catamaran

In contrast to the monohull yacht, a catamaran has at least two hulls. This divides the boat's load on two points of the water surface, which reduces the draft and thus the wave resistance considerably. Catamarans therefore literally glide along in normal sea condition and a sway is hardly noticeable. They also offer significantly more space on board. And with some catamarans there are nets on the bow between the hulls, on which it is great to chill out.

The Motor Yacht

Motor yachts have no sails, are properly motorized and very agile. Independence from the prevailing wind conditions makes such a yacht more comfortable. Nobody has to worry about the rigging and you can also travel much faster. Due to its construction, there is more space on the bow than in comparable size sailboats.

Sailing in Lanzarote

How to get man and sea into perfect harmony? A sailboat can do this like no other. The wind inflates the sails and you feel how this natural force pushes your boat forward. Sailing boats sway less than motor yachts. Far away from any civilization noise, you silently glide over the sea and enjoy the stillness that is only filled by the lapping of the waves and the blowing of the wind.

What Choice of Boat Trips Do You Have on Lanzarote?

A large number of different boat trips are offered in the individual ports of Lanzarote. If you want to find the right tour for yourself, it is not that easy. Your choice of course primarily depends on your personal preferences, but the also occasion plays a decisive role. If romance is at the fore for you and your partner on the boat tour, a party boat is unlikely to meet your expectations. And if you're in a party mood and want to flirt a little, you're definitely wrong on a submarine. Therefore, it is crucial to make the right choice. The following overview will help you with this:

Lanzarote Submarine Tours

The Yellow Submarine Lanzarote is located in the port of Puerto Calero. The electrically powered submarine is just waiting to introduce you to the colorful underwater world off the coast of the island. There is a porthole in front of every seat, which allows you an unhindered view outside. On your journey to a depth of up to 30 meters, you will eventually encounter some sea creatures. Your guide will give you detailed information about what you can see outside your window. And after about an hour you will be enriched with some interesting impressions. This is undoubtedly an ideal trip for the whole family.

Party Boats in Lanzarote

The motto on these tours is to celebrate and dance. These are usually larger boats on which countless party people have enough space. Loud music and lots of drinks provide for the necessary level of fun. The dance club on the sea sails along the coast of Lanzarote and offers an absolutely fantastic panorama. Some party boats stop for a swim so you can cool off your mood. Sometimes water sports activities such as jet skiing or parasailing are also offered optionally. Therefore, if you are one of the more sociable people, a party boat in Lanzarote is definitely the one for you.

Day Trips on a Catamaran or a Yacht

The term “day trip” refers to boat trips that last between 4 and 6 hours. The theme of these tours is relaxation. The main thing is to offer you a nice day at sea, where you can really relax. Delicious local dishes as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks are always available on board. When the skipper anchors in a bay, you can jump into the crystal clear waters or simply relax on one of the sun loungers. Additional offers such as stand up paddling, kayaking or jet skiing may also be available. The decisive difference between the catamarans and yachts is size. They can accommodate between 9 and more than 100 people. If you prefer a more private atmosphere, a tour on a small yacht with up to 12 people is recommended. Therefore, when booking a day trip, inquire about the capacity of the boat and what services are included.

Tours at Sunset

Watching the sun gradually sink into the sea is a great romance in itself. Experiencing it on board a ship while listening to the waves lapping up increases this feeling immensely. Needless to say that sunset tours are very popular. For this reason, they are often also offered on boats with a larger capacity. The catamaran or yacht leaves in the late afternoon. First you cruise off the coast and enjoy some time at sea while swimming or snorkeling. The icing on the cake of this wonderful afternoon is the impressive play of colors of the sunset.

Take your time while looking though our offers. All of our tours are described in detail. Under “Services & Prices” you will also find information about which service is included in the price and which is optional. Through the pictures you can get an impression of what to expect on board.

Where Do the Boats Leave From in Lanzarote?

Boat Trips to La Graciosa

You can reach the smallest inhabited Canary Island very quickly by boat. It only takes about 25 minutes from Lanzarote to La Graciosa. The island is undoubtedly a particularly beautiful place on earth. No paved roads and the houses of Caleta de Sebo are built in the sand. There are various boat trips to La Graciosa on offer. Some propose to go ashore while others cross and anchor off the coast of this pretty island.

Boat Trips From Costa Teguise

Despite its direct location on the Atlantic coast, there is no port in this popular tourist destination in the east of Lanzarote. Consequently, if holidaymakers in Costa Teguise want to undertake a boat trip, they must travel to one of the island's port locations. The closest port from which excursion boats start is located in Puerto del Carmen. Fortunately, most operators will pick you up for your boat tour from Costa Teguise.

Boat Trips From Puerto del Carmen

There are also various boat tours starting daily from the sports harbor in Puerto del Carmen. A luxurious sailing catamaran sails to the Papagayo beaches among others. Spend an unforgettable day on the most beautiful beaches of Lanzarote. You can also go dolphin watching from Puerto del Carmen. Meet these unique marine mammals in their natural habitat.

Boat Trips From Playa Blanca

The port in Playa Blanca primarily is the bridge to the neighboring island of Fuerteventura. For this reason, different ferries depart from there every day. And Playa Banca is also the starting point for the popular excursion boats that set out from here to offer their guests an eventful day at sea. In addition to trips on yachts and catamarans, you can also take trips on fishing and glass-bottom boats. The offer of boat tours in Playa Blanca really huge.

What Is the Right Service For You?

Before you book a boat trip, you should check the associated service offer in detail about. Because depending on your requirements and expectations, some of the tours may be more or less suitable for you. Therefore, find out what kind of entertainment is presented on board and what food and drinks are served. In the tour descriptions you will find detailed information about the inclusive and optional services under the menu item “Services & Prices”. Please pay particular attention to:

  • Food: Meals are included in the tour price for most boat trips. Find out which dishes are offered in advance. Contact us if you cannot find this information in the tour description. If you suffer from allergies or food intolerances, you can let us know as part of the booking process so that we can provide alternatives.
  • Drinks: Alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks should be included in the price. Check if your favorite drinks are included. If the drinks on the tour are optional, it is interesting to know which you can purchase on board and what they cost.
  • Entertainment: The type of entertainment on board can determine whether it will be a successful day or not. Since live music does not appeal to everyone and playing or dancing is not necessarily a thing for everyone. It's best to ask in order to avoid unpleasant surprises.
  • Water Sports: If water sports are offered on board that is not included in the price, you should check in advance what they will cost and how long they will take.

What Should You Bring on the Day of the Excursion?

  • Sunscreen: Please apply sunscreen liberally and repeatedly. Solar radiation at sea is more intense and is quickly underestimated due to the cooling sea breeze.
  • Swimwear: So that you can go swimming and snorkeling at the stops.
  • Bath sheets: In addition to drying, the bath sheets also offer more hygiene as you can cover the mats with them.
  • Jackets: Especially in the winter months from October to May and on evening tours, it can get a little cooler at sea.
  • Tablets for seasickness: If you already know that you suffer from seasicknedd, it is better to take a tablet before starting your trip.
