Self drive boat hire in Tenerife (without Skipper)

Self drive boat hire in Tenerife (without Skipper)


If you are looking to rent a boat to drive yourself around the waters of Tenerife, this is the right place to find it. We offer you to rent your own boat without skipper in Tenerife South. Most of the boats leave from Puerto Colon, the main port of Costa Adeje.

We must clarify before we continue that you must be at least 18 years old to drive one of these boats. In addition to this, you must pay a deposit when you hire the boat, which will be returned to you when you return the boat. If you meet these requirements, you just need to know how to drive a boat and you are ready to go.

Private yacht charter without skipper or captain

Tenerife boat without captain and licence for 6 persons

Here you will find a wide selection of boats for rent without skipper. Among them you can find small boats that do not require you to have a sailing licence. Larger ones, on the other hand, will require a valid boating licence to drive.

Smaller boats do not require a boating licence due to their small size and 15 hp engine. Larger boats do require a licence and diesel fuel is paid for separately depending on consumption.

You will find self-drive boats that can carry up to 7 passengers (depending on the boat). The best thing about this type of activity is that it will be just you and your guests, you can enjoy the sea in total exclusivity without the company of strangers.

If you are going with a large group of people, it is best to choose a boat with a captain, as driving a car is not the same as driving a bus. In that case, check out our specialised boat hire section: Private boat hire in Tenerife.

What can you do during your boat trip?

Bahia de Masca - Los Gigantes Masca Bay (1)

During the boat trips our clients relax thanks to the peace that the sea transmits. Take the opportunity to relax and admire the beauty of the coastal scenery without thinking about anything else. You can also sunbathe and get a beautiful tan.

Share drinks and spend a relaxing day at sea. Remember that life on the sea is more serene so don’t miss the opportunity to rest your mind and let yourself be carried away by the serenity of the ocean. You can also fish, snorkel, anchor at a beach to go for a swim and practice water sports.

Bareboat charter (licence required)

We have the Aguamar Samoa, a small boat that is rented bareboat. It’s ideal for a break at sea to forget about the worries of the city. You can rent it for 4 or 8 hours. The boat has a capacity of 7 passengers. You embark in Puerto Colon, Costa Adeje. We remind you that you must present a valid boat driving license to hire this activity.

Boat hire with or without skipper (licence required)

Es war eine grandiose Reise, das Personal war sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend, das Schiff sauber und das Essen lecker. Sehr beeindruckend waren die Wale, Delfine und die wunderschöne Natur Teneriffas.

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.
