Adventure Cruises in Canary Islands

The Canary Islands of Spain consist of 8 volcanic islands. The crystal-clear waters surrounding the Canaries are ideal for cruising around to visit scenic beaches, wandering ancient forests and for hiking up to high cliffs and ravines with infinity views. Some of the exceptional experiences on the horizon include finding solace in the deep silence of the forests, musing about the spectacular volcanoes and relaxing to the peaceful lapping of the waves. Sailing aboard small Spain Cruises to explore the ‘islands of eternal spring’ with 3000 hours of sunlight is the best way to revitalise one's energy, all while getting an opportunity to tour some of the 4 national parks, 7 biosphere reserves and 3 marine reserves that the islands include.

Sailing the open sea is something unique and needs to be experienced with the five senses. This can be enjoyed at its peak in the blue waters of the Canary Islands. With the islands' rich nautical history spanning hundreds of years coupled with familiar trade winds, the Canary islands are best explored by sea. After all, Christopher Columbus used these islands as his last stop before venturing into the new world!

San Sebastian de La Gomera

San Sebastián de La Gomera, said to be Christopher Columbus’s last stop before embarking on his voyage across the Atlantic to find the New World, is full of tradition, culture and a long history. It encompasses beautiful, perfectly conserved natural spaces that are protected because of their high scientific and scenic worth. All in a calm and inviting environment that will make travellers feel right at home, with the advantage of a warm climate and 13 stunning beaches nearby.

Santa Cruz de La Palma

Declared as a Cultural Asset, Santa Cruz de La Palma has beaches for all occasions, whether guests wish to visit secluded beaches or beaches with all modern facilities. If La Palma were to be described by colour, it would be green. The entire island is a biosphere reserve and also has one of the three protected marine reserves, making it perfect for snorkelling.

Puerto de Vueltas La Gomera

The eastern side of La Gomera hosts a quaint little city with exquisite beaches dotted with palm trees and the Vueltas harbour. Here, guests can enjoy some calm swimming and snorkelling in crystalline waters with dark, volcanic sand and no waves as there are no strong underwater currents.

Puerto Colón

The modern marina of Puerto Colón is located in the south of Tenerife. Nestled in Playa de las Américas, this is one of the busiest tourist areas on the island. It’s protected by a large curved breakwater that calms the sea, and with loads of water sports to partake in, there’s fun in store for all ages. With beautiful beaches to catch the sun rays and dining at one of the many quaint harbour-front cafés, everyone is guaranteed to have a great time.
