Boat trips

Lanzarote Boat

Different excursions depart from the harbour, one of the most attractive activities being whale and dolphin watching. During the trip you will get to know the best of the island and you can take the opportunity to swim in the delicious waters of the Mediterranean. We have different boats, including motorboats, sailing boats, luxury yachts, catamarans and many more.

We offer a different option for every need.

The excursions are organised according to the number of people and the characteristics of the trip. Some boats offer meals and drinks, the possibility to have a barbecue on board or to practice deep sea fishing.

Sea sports

Lanzarote Surf (2)

This is a key place for lovers of scuba diving. In Puerto del Carmen you will find different diving schools and you will have everything you need to dive under the sea. Windsurfing is another popular sport in Puerto del Carmen.

But if you are looking for fun in the wind, what better than parascending. It is a super fun experience in which you will be tied to a parachute which in turn is pulled by a boat at high speed.

You can also rent jet skis full of fun and adrenaline, you won’t want to get off after you take the controls and start to sail the waters of the Mediterranean.

I hired the atlanca boat as a surprise for my husbands 40th birthday and it was honestly the best day and lots of fun. Easy to book, when we arrived Patrick did the paperwork and explained everything then Fran gave us all the safety information on how to ride the boat. Everything was provided and additional special touches were much appreciated. They were both great, really friendly and put us at ease. We had 3 hours booked and we got the full time, everything excellent. Highly recommended. Thank you

Alquilamos una excursión para ver cetáceos y dar un paseo de 3h. En general la experiencia estuvo bien. Toda la gestión de reserva fue fácil y el trato con Bananapalmbay fue un gusto.
Al llegar al barco tuvimos alguna confusión con lo acordado, pero tras comunicarse la empresa del barco con Bananapalmbay se solucionó y pudimos disfrutar del viaje. Además vimos ballenas piloto.
