Lanzarote is home to some of the best boat trips in the world. With so many unique experiences on offer, you’ll never have time to see them all during your visit to this island paradise. Luckily, you can make up for it by booking your trip before leaving home or once you arrive, since most operators offer online bookings nowadays. Here are three of our favorite Lanzarote boat trips that you shouldn’t miss out on during your stay in Lanzarote
Best Lanzarote Boat Trips
1) La Graciosa
This smaller island off of La Gomera is a stunning white sand beach that doesn’t get too much traffic. The waters are crystal clear and filled with sea turtles, making it one of our top picks for snorkeling. If you choose to stay in La Graciosa overnight, you will find beautiful hiking trails and incredible seafood restaurants. On your boat trip back from Las Palmas, you might see dolphins or whales as well!
2) Punta Langosteira
Punta Langosteira is a popular stop for those who visit western Lanzarote. Head out in a small boat from Puerto del Carmen or El Matorral and paddle around, checking out some of Langosteira’s spectacular sea caves and rock formations before catching some sun on its long sandy beach. Bring your mask and snorkel to see what you can find! Make sure you also check out Playas de los Pinos, just across from Punta Langosteira.
3) Canary Islands Ecotourism
The Canary Islands have a number of eco-tourism options, which are perfect for those who want an active holiday. Because most of these eco-tourism offerings have a strong focus on the natural beauty and history of islands, they’re especially popular with people who like history and are fans of hiking or biking. In addition to their focus on nature, a lot of these tours also incorporate ancient historical sites into their itineraries.
4) Sunset Chill Out Cruise of Lanzarote
The Sunset Chill Out Cruise of Lanzarote lasts between two and a half and three hours. It costs $70 to $200 per person, which includes music and snacks on board, as well as a bottle of water. The boat leaves from Puerto del Carmen Marina at 6 pm each day except Saturday and returns at 9:30 pm.
5) Catlanza Catamaran Sailing in Lanzarote
Catlanza Sailing provides half-day and full-day boat trips from Puerto del Carmen. Most tours include snorkeling stops, lunch on deserted beaches, and professional onboard entertainment. Cruise into gorgeous azure waters on one of Catlanza’s modern catamarans for a full day of sailing in Lanzarote. Along your journey, keep an eye out for spinner dolphins as you make your way toward an idyllic white-sand beach for lunch.
