Charter Experience

From the cosmopolitan island of Tenerife to the unspoiled volcanic mountains on La Gomera, explore the Canaries with a Canary Islands yacht charter.


With their close proximity to Africa and the Western Sahara, the Canary Islands are blessed with year-round sunshine and a constant north-westerly wind. Ideal for experienced sailors, they lend themselves well to a sailing yacht charter for more experienced charterers. Alternatively, they are also ideal for those looking to cruise from island to island by motor yacht.


Embark in the capital of Tenerife, Santa Cruz, and spend a few days cruising around the island, stepping ashore to discover the cosmopolitan centers and old fishing villages as you go. From Tenerife, head to San Sebastian on La Gomera. The island was the starting point for Columbus’ first voyage and boasts a wild interior that is known for its hiking.

Cruise over to the most exotic of the Canaries, La Palma. Also called the “Pretty Island”, La Palma is known for its lush vegetation, clear waters and wealth of flora and fauna. Neighboring El Hierro also boasts spectacular scenery above and below the water. The waters are so clear that they provide perfect snorkeling and diving conditions.


Whether you are heading to the Canaries for a sailing yacht charter or planning to island hop on a motor yacht, they offer something unique and different to the usual Mediterranean hot spots.
