Boat Trips and Sailing in Fuerteventura
Enjoy the assortment of boat trips that are offered in Fuerteventura all year round.
Spend half a day sailing in our glass bottom boat. Discover the beautiful coastline around three islands: Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and Lobos. Do some snorkelling, enjoy a traditional lunch on board and admire the views of the seabed through the boat’s glass bottom before exploring the island nature reserve of Lobos.
Guided Boat trips in Fuerteventura are a pleasant excursion experience for the entire family. You will go out to visit an island, a remote beach, a nearby fishermen’s harbour or you can jump into the water and do some snorkelling. Some offer a jetski ride or a banana trip.
The sailing conditions in Fuerteventura are perfect for Sailing with air temperature between 18 and 24 degrees Celsius for most of the year; the sea temperature is around 20 degrees; and a moderate to strong prevailing off shore wind.
There are sailing courses available on the island, and also the opportunity to go on sailing excursions.
While sailing in Fuerteventura, there’ll be the opportunity to see whales, dolphins, flying fish, porpoises, loggerhead turtles and a host of other marine life in the clear sea water.
The main sailing marinas for those who are into Fuerteventura sailing are in Corralejo, El Cotillo, Puerto del Rosario, Caleta de Fuste, Gran Tarajal and Morro Jable. The marina in Gran Tarajal has recently been expanded and offers many berths for resident boats and yachts and for overnight stopovers.
Sailing courses on catamarans are possible at Las Playitas and Tarajalejo on the south-east coast. A one hour taster experience, with an instructor, costs 25 euros. A 12 hour course (4 days) costs around 250 euros, and in that time you’ll be trained to sail a catamaran. There is a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) approved training centre in Corralejo.
Although Fuerteventura has the ideal conditions for it, sailing is less popular than for example kitesurfing and windsurfing. The reason for that could be the fact that, although there are several harbours on Fuerteventura, there are only a few sheltered bays where you can drop anchor and dropping anchor at an idyllic spot is what most of the people that are travelling with large yachts are looking for. A marina is planned however just before you get to Corralejo.
SUBCAT is a real submarine. It is the only ship worldwide that combines surface and submerged travelling. Enjoy local activities and leisure and discover with us the fantastic underwater world of Fuerteventura.
