Private Skippered Yachts Available

2. Canary Islands Bare Boat Charter
Those with Day Skipper level and above can charter their own yacht but can elect to sail ‘in company’ with some friendly advice from our Skippers. It just gives you peace of mind that there are others to give a helping hand if required. It also means that there is a ready made social scene of several boats if you want to mix in – and a comfort feel of having others close by. All the yachts are well appointed and all are less than 3 years old.  Add in from £100 per boat to accompany our ‘mini flotilla’. See yacht options below (at the bottom).

3.  Canary Islands Private Skippered Charter
If you have your own group but would like the comfort feel of having a skipper aboard to lend a helping hand, mentor or guide or possibly just run your private yacht for you whilst you relax no problem. Add in a first mate / hostess to look after the catering and serve the chilled wine…
There are yachts available from 36 feet – 51 feet long with a multitude of different cabin layouts. 46 foot yachts have 4 cabins and 3 heads / toilets / showers. There are options of 3 cabin / 2 heads 41 footers and 2 or 3 cabin 36 & 37 footers. We can provide Skippers for any of the yachts you may chose. – See yacht options below (at the bottom) – enquire and we will price a skipper / first mate.

The Chinijo Archipelago – Just North of Lanzarote

 Canary Islands - Adventure Sailing – Flotilla.

Great sailing during the week in a fantastic temperate climate. Over the week we will visit the largest marine preserve in Europe and spend a week circumnavigating the island of Lanzarote taking time in the special, small Chinijo Archipelago which is just north of Lanzarote.

The largest of these Islets has just 700 people living there, no roads and just dusty tracks with secluded bays, sunshine and warm waters. The Chinijo Archipelago is made up of La Graciosa, Montaña Clara, Alegranza further away – and the smaller Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste. Think about a total of 150 miles during the week with time ashore to explore in La Gracioza and time to snorkle in bays along the way. We aim to go right around the island and visit the crystal clear waters of Lobos island between Fuerteventura and Lanzarote and possibly call into Fuerte as well.

Dolphins  are a regular sight in the Canaries

It is well worth mentioning the excellent marine wildlife that exist in these waters with regular sightings of dolphins and short finned pilot whales. It really lifts the spirits to sail among these fantastic creatures. There opportunities to snorkel and swim wherever possible.
