What types of boat are
available for charter in Tenerife?

During your stay in Tenerife, you can hire different types of boat,
depending on your wishes and your sailing skills.

  • Motorboats: sail quickly and comfortably, and explore every
    corner of the island. Some motorboats can be rented without
    a coastal license.
  • Sailboats: give yourself a feeling of freedom as you let the
    wind take you. Sail along the coast of Tenerife or to the other
    Canary Islands. Sail for a day or several days:
    the choice is yours!
  • Catamarans: these particularly stable sailing boats are very
    popular in Tenerife. They are ideal for group outings, for example.
    You can also take advantage of a catamaran to observe whales
    and dolphins in the open sea.
  • Yachts: these luxury boats offer unique excursions to admire
    Tenerife's scenery from the sea. You'll often be treated to a
    meal and drinks to accompany the excursion, and sometimes
    you'll have the chance to observe whales and dolphins.
  • Submarines: dive into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean without
    even getting wet! Discover Tenerife's underwater wonders in
    comfort and safety with specially equipped submarines.

Whatever model of boat you'd like to hire, remember to book well
in advance, as demand is high, especially at the height of the season. 

What are the best places to explore by
boat in Tenerife? 

A boat trip, a cruise or a themed marine excursion, anything is possible
on the island of eternal spring. To do so, head for the Costa Adeje, where you'll find the best sea outings. You'll discover a magnificent coastline punctuated by charming little coves.

Sail to Los Gigantes to admire the island's famous cliffs. Or head in the opposite direction to El Médano, where the favorable winds allow you to explore the boat in complete tranquillity.

If you're looking for an extraordinary experience, join a cruise of a few days or more to the other Canary Islands: La Gomera, La Palma and Gran Canaria are the most popular, as they are closest to Tenerife.

Advice: how to prepare for a yacht charter in Tenerife?

Take the time to choose your boat rental company carefully, and look at the rental conditions. Before signing the contract, be sure to check whether insurance is included or whether you are responsible for insuring yourself. 

Choose a boat suited to your level of sailing ability and the type of excursions you wish to undertake.

Finally, always check that safety equipment such as life jackets and fire extinguishers are on board. 

Check the weather forecast, and adapt your outing or cruise accordingly.

Finally, don't forget your sun cream, cap and sunglasses, even on overcast days, as reverberation is important. And don't forget a windbreaker. Although temperatures are very pleasant on Tenerife, it's always a little cooler at sea. Have a good wind!
