Fuerteventura – Lanzarote – La Graciosa – Lobos – The catamaran charter

All aboard! The catamaran will set sail from Corralejo, Fuerteventura, heading north. Get ready for three days on the Fuerteventura – Lanzarote – La Graciosa- Lobos Cruise! You will enjoy impressive natural landscapes, beautiful sunsets and recreation.

The islands and islets of the Canary archipelago are true tourist gems located in the Atlantic.

Day 1 Cruise Lanzarote – La Graciosa- Lobos: Lanzarote

Sailing from the port of Corralejo, we go to our sister island – Lanzarote. From the north of Fuerte ventura we can appreciate a very different landscape from our beloved island of Fuerteventura. From afar we can see the traditional white houses of the island of Lanzarote.

We land at Playa de Papagayo, the most popular beach on the island, which is located in the south of Lanzarote. Its golden sand and intense turquoise blue waters create a contrast of beautiful beauty.

After having enjoyed the water activities with our Kayak and Paddle Surf, we go to the capital of the island – Arrecife. You will enjoy a remarkable contrast after being in a place as wild as Playa de Papagayo.

Arrecife is the Capital of Lanzarote since the second half of the 19th century. It has become the administrative and commercial center of the island.

Then we go to the Marina de Arrecife, a marina for yachts and cruises, with restaurants, bars and trendy shops. There you will enjoy spectacular international food!

Arrecife offers us a lot of culture and history. We can find there among others: The Historic Quarter, the Castillo de San Gabriel and the International Museum of Contemporary Art. This is the only city we visited during our cruise.

Day 2 Lobos Cruise – Lanzarote – La Graciosa: La Graciosa Island

Now we leave from the port of Arrecife towards the north of Lanzarote, contemplating its rocky coast. After having passed the spectacular Risco de Famara, just beyond Punta Fariones, a pod of dolphins welcomes us just at the moment when we begin to see La Graciosa. What a happiness to be able to see them in their natural environment!

Dolphins

The coast of Lanzarote is very rich in marine fauna. With a little luck you can see a sperm whale or a whale during the tour. As if the welcome from the dolphins was not enough, the buzzer begins to sound. The result is a sierra fish, which we will have for dinner tonight!

Finally, we cross the last section called El Río that is between Lanzarote and La Graciosa.

La Graciosa is known as the Eighth Island of the 7 Canary Islands. Only in 2018 was it recognized as such. With its white houses and sandy streets, it has a population of 700 people. It is one of the few places in Europe where roads are not yet built. This makes the island still virgin, and free of mass tourism.

Direction: La Graciosa

La Graciosa surprises us with its beauty, nature and silence.

The beauty of its exotic and solitary beaches captivates to a point of relaxation that is not easily achieved elsewhere.

Day 3 Lobos Cruise – Lanzarote – La Graciosa: Islet of Lobos

On the third day our cruise arrives at the islet of Lobos. Named for the large number of sea lions that once populated its shores. It is a beauty of volcanic nature, a natural space for birds and other animals on the island.

Then we landed at the Lobos anchorage to spend our last night of the cruise. The water here is crystal clear and shallow, making it easy to see the seabed.

Sunrise in Isla de Lobos

In the morning we have breakfast with a wonderful sunrise and we head back to the port of Corralejo. It is a short journey: about 15 – 20 minutes.

Enjoy 3 wonderful days on a cruise

It has been a wonderful 3 days. But as they say “all good things come to an end soon.” Until next time!

10 catamaran travel recommendations

If you are going on a Catamaran trip for the first time and you don’t know what to expect, you should read the catamaran travel recommendations that we bring today. Get ready for your next vacation and enjoy one of the best ways to visit the Canary Islands with Fuertecharter.

What we want with these catamaran travel recommendations is to prepare you in advance and avoid any unforeseen event. As in any trip, there are certain factors to take into account, especially if it is your first time on this type of adventure.

  1. Inform yourself

Catamarans are very comfortable boats for this type of trip. In fact, the supply and demand in the rental of these boats has increased considerably, due to their ease of use, comfort and privacy. Thus we avoid common spaces and we are in safer environments. However, it is important to inform yourself very well about the basic security systems and other relevant information.

2. Be prepared for everything

What is the greatest fear of people when traveling by boat? That’s right, dizziness. Even if you think you are immune to these movements, don’t forget to take “biodramina” so that the dizziness doesn’t spoil your trip.

3. Protect yourself from the sun

In this type of adventure you will have to spend a good amount of time under the rays of the sun. Don’t forget to bring a good sunscreen. Even if it is very hot, don’t forget to wear clothes with long sleeves (made of light material such as cotton or linen) to avoid burns on your skin.

4. Forget about hats

When traveling on a catamaran forget about wearing hats, because they will end up flying very far. You better wear a cap, or if you really want to wear a hat, make sure it has a string to tie around your neck.

5. Better if it’s barefoot

If you walk barefoot you won’t be slipping. You will include on your luggage your favorite shoes in case you go down in a port and go to dinner in some wonderful town. But when you are on the catamaran, forget about them.

6. Take only the basics

In the cabins you won’t have much space to hang your clothes. Therefore, one of the most important catamaran travel recommendations is to pack only what you really need. Apart from the bikinis and swimsuits, don’t forget to include some windbreakers for the colder days. It´s better to bring a travel bag than a suitcase, because it will be easier to fit it in the cabin.

7. Do the groceries for the entire trip or contract a cook.

Buy enough food and drinks for the entire trip. For this we recommend that you think of your menu in advance. Purchases will be made for the entire journey and it is very possible that there will be no opportunity to buy anything during the cruise. This also applies to your favorite cocktail, or something special that you would like to drink. Also there exists an extra option to contract a cook, who would be at your disposition during all your escapade.

8. Be moderate about alcohol

Enjoying a good wine or exquisite champagne while sailing is definitely another level, but be careful not to overdo it. Crazy drinking can give you a hard time, especially in this type of environment.

9. Download your favorite songs

While you are cruising, it is normal for you to go through places where you don’t have an Internet connection. Therefore, make sure to download many of your favorite songs to your mobile device.

10. Ask all you want!

Our crew is there for you. Any details or questions that have not been clear, do not hesitate to ask.

Happy trip!
