Fly Fish ride in Tenerife

FlyBoarding is another great fun activity in Playa de las Americas. It has a slightly higher level of intensity than the banana boat. We recommend it for those adventurers who are looking for maximum sensations and unlimited fun. If you are full of energy and love the sea, the FlyBoard is for you.

When the boat reaches maximum speed the FlyBoard rises into the air and takes you high into the air. The aim is to stay on the FlyBoard for as long as possible. The fun of the activity is that you will have to hold on with all your strength but even so, gravity and inertia will make you fall. Our customers are very happy and satisfied after the activity, they always want to do it again and they can’t stop commenting on how extraordinary and fun FlyBoarding is.

Contact us to book a kayak safari in Tenerife South and enjoy the wonders that the warm island of Tenerife has to offer.


Flyboard in Tenerife South

It consists of a board similar to a snowboard which is lifted into the air propelled by a jet ski. The aim of the activity is to keep your balance on the board while surfing in the air. Some experts in this activity manage to perform incredible acrobatics on the board. For beginners it is also a very fun activity. Keeping your balance is an achievement and is what brings the fun side to the experience.

FlyBoarding is addictive and low risk. Mistakes made on the FlyBoard will lead you straight into the water. This is different from land sports where falls are paid for with pain. When you manage to keep your balance, there is nothing to stop you. This sport also allows you to dive like a dolphin when you enter the water. It’s great fun and appeals to those looking for extreme activities during their holidays in Tenerife.

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.
