Relax and enjoy our one week cruise around some of the Canaries’ best loved and stunning locations

Approximately 350 to 500NM visiting the Eastern Canary Islands and ports of, for example Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Rubicon – Lanzarote, Morro Able – Fuerteventura, Las Palmas/Puerto Mogan – Gran Canaria. This week cruise is intended for people with some previous sailing experience who are looking to enjoy a sailing cruise or also to achieve mileage towards further qualification. The days can be long, the winds can be challenging but our cruises are very popular and will give you a great sense of achievement. You can come on one of our skippered boats, or charter a boat and join the flotilla.
