Boat Trips in Gran Canaria

Located in the Canary Islands, an archipelago just off the coast of mainland Spain, Gran Canaria is a hugely popular travel destination with endless attractions. From volcanic landscapes and sandy beaches to impressive water parks and beautiful countryside; there are many ways to experience this stunning landmass.

However, it must be said that one of the most enjoyable aspects of a trip in this part of the world is to take to the open seas and soak in the atmosphere of the Mediterranean. In this respect, there are many excellent options for Gran Canaria boat trips which can be taken for relaxation and whale watching or even visiting nearby Tenerife.

Note on visiting Tenerife: While a trip to Tenerife may seem a little far, these are often some of the most enjoyable excursions you can take from Gran Canaria. Affordable and ultra-comfortable, you can expect a seamless ride all the way and a smile on your face when you return.

With the above in mind, here are some of the best boat trips in Gran Canaria including Tenerife:

Gran Canaria boat trips

The Bahia Cat

Arguably the most popular boat trips Gran Canaria; the Bahia Cat is an exciting journey along the southwestern coast line of the island. Featuring stunning coastal view with white beaches and turquoise waters, the scenes from the deck are unrivaled while the comfort on board is equally as impressive. That being said, the highlight of this particular tour is often the opportunity to spot whales, dolphins, and turtles in their natural habitat. If you feel adventurous enough, there is also the option of going out on the banana boat, but the lunch will usually be enough activity for those who came for sun and relaxation.

MTV Party Boat

While this may not be for everyone, the party boat is hugely popular and one of the busiest boat trips Gran Canaria. Also known as the MTV Boat Party, the concept may be a little different to other excursions, but tourists seem to enjoy it just as much. With a jacuzzi, bar, and restaurant on board, it also features all the facilities you could possibly need at a party and all of this without mentioning an exclusive DJ.

Catamaran Delfin Playa

The Delfin Playa is quite similar to the Bahia Cat in a sense that the excursion is designed for sightseeing and pure relaxation. Featuring an excellent layout with sun loungers and chill out area, the boat is suitable for group bookings and families. Having cruised a few miles out to sea, the captain will endeavor to spot some dolphins, turtles and possibly even whales.

One day excursion to Tenerife

It must be said that given enough time, an excursion to Tenerife is always worthwhile. For this reason, there is an excellent excursion which travels via Puerto de Las Nieves to catch a one-hour ferry ride to Tenerife. Consisting of an air-conditioned coach and a supremely comfortable catamaran, the transport itself is excellent but all considered, this is really just a hassle-free and enjoyable way to visit a nearby island. Shopping, sightseeing or visiting local landmarks; you are free to explore and discover this beautiful destination at your leisure.  In many ways, this is also one of the best things about this particular excursion to Tenerife – flexibility.

Visiting Loro Park in Tenerife

Another excellent option for the Gran Canaria boat trips involves an opportunity to visit Loro Park. Again, traveling from Gran Canaria to Tenerife is a very convenient process, but then the park itself is the real talking point. Consisting of ample marine life and some truly stunning environments, Loro Park is the ultimate excursion for a family with young children. However, this park is not just for the children and adults will find just as much interest throughout, most especially in the animal aquarium which features white tip sharks, jelly fish and much more.

As you can see, there are many Gran Canaria boat trips, and each one is different to the next. Whether you venture along the south-west coastline or further to the island of Tenerife, you should find a different perspective at sea and an appreciation for a very different world. So while the party boat might not be your style or Loro Park may seem a little too busy, anyone can appreciate the uninterrupted relaxation offered on a catamaran and the opportunity to see a different side to this beautiful region.
