Boat Trips Puerto del Carmen
There´s a wide range of boat trips available from the Old Town harbour in Puertodel Carmen ranging from an hours cruise along the coastline of the resort through to a sea faring excursion to the neighbouring island of Fuerteventura.
If you just fancy heading out to sea for an hour or two then all you have to do is make your way to the harbour area in the Old Town of Puerto del Carmen.
Along the harbour wall you´ll find an array of different boat trips and excursions. A couple of these, such as the Glass Bottom Boat – will take you out and along the coastline of the resort. From the harbour you´ll basically turn right – allowing you to see the beaches of Puerto del Carmen, and indeed the whole resort, from a completely new perspective.
At various intervals the captain will cut the engines and members of the crew will attract an array of sea life to the viewing windows in the hull of the boat, with the tried and trusted method of dropping bread into the water.
Boats leave every hour or so and the average cost is around €10 per adult. This can be a great way to cool off and enjoy some sea breezes, especially during the hotter summer months.
The Blue Delfin is one of the most popular mairitme excursions on Lanzarote.
This giant catamaran houses 32 submarine windows – so combining a good deal of sea faring stability with plenty of opportunity for those on board to view the local marine wildlife in close up.
They operate a number of different tours – including their best seller which is a day long excursion to the neighbouring islands of Fuerteventura and Los Lobos, priced at €48 for adults and €24 for children (including food and drink).
A variety of shorter excursions are available as well as a dolphin and whale watching cruise.
The Sub Cat is – as the name suggests – a cross between a submarine and a catamaran.
Which means you have the slightly unusual sensation of starting your voyage on deck – before making your way below as the vessel prepares to dive 30 metres to the floor of the Atlantic Ocean.
As with most other excursions on Lanzarote, SubCat tours can be booked from the reception area of your hotel or apartment complex (at the same cost as if booking direct). Alternatively, contact SubCat direct on 928 510 065.
A three hour excursion costs €48 per adult and €24 per child.
