Boat trip Puerto Rico - Mogan - Tasartico
To go on this boat excursion along the southern coast of Gran Canaria from Puerto Rico to Güigüi, the first thing you should know about is our boat: a vessel 30 metres long and 12 metres wide. It also has a capacity of 244 people, but in order to have a comfortable journey, there will only be up to 100 people on the boat. This way, you can move around at any time from the deck area, where you’ll find comfortable chairs, to the recreation area below deck.
On the first floor you’ll discover the dining bar. This is obviously the place where you’ll have lunch, but as we have said, you can come here at any time to quench your thirst with a soda, a sangria or a beer. And if you like, there is also a Jacuzzi here where you can relax during the voyage.
Our itinerary begins when we board in Puerto Rico, and from there we will begin travelling along the coast until we arrive at Punta del Descojonado. This is the typical route, but in case the weather and sea conditions impede our way, we will choose another course, such as going to the tourist complex Anahi del Mar and its beach.
But if we follow the itinerary to Güigüi, you’ll be able to marvel at the four elements that will accompany us throughout the journey: the lava cliffs, deep ravines, beautiful beaches and enigmatic sea caves. And when the day is clear, we’ll see the peak of El Teide on the neighbouring island of Tenerife.
During the first part of the route, we will head toward Puerto de Mogan, a popular tourist spot on the island, in part due to its hotels, but especially for its series of attractive beaches. You’ll get a different perspective of all of this from the Catamaran, since it will pass in front of Amadores, Tauro, Cura, Taurito and Mogan beaches.
Such large beaches greatly contrast the ones that we’ll see during the second phase of the excursion. We’ll see some less-known and practically virgin beaches, which are difficult to access. These include places like Venegueras Beach, Tasarte Beach or Tasartico Beach, all with beautiful landscapes.
And our final destination still awaits us: Güigüi. It is without doubt the most inaccessible cove, due to the surrounding terrain.
From there, if the conditions of the sea allow it, we will head toward Punta del Descojonado. Remember that we’re in the Atlantic, very close to the coast but still in oceanic waters! Therefore we are always beholden to the weather. Therefore we will try to go to Punta del Descojonado in a safe manner. This is the most remote enclave that we’ll visit during the journey. Surely you’ll be wondering what its name means. There’s only one way to find out: travel with us on this excursion on our great catamaran!
You’ll not only discover the origin of this curious name, as well as marvel at the beauty of the southern coast of Gran Canaria, but you’ll also have the opportunity to eat on the boat. When we begin the return journey to Puerto Rico, the buffet will open and you can enjoy three dishes: salad, marinated chicken, or the typical Canary dish, potatoes and gravy.
And for the best digestion, look for a comfortable chair on which to take a nap, or simply contemplate the coast before our vessel drops anchor near the coast so that you can enjoy a dip in the sea or other aquatic activities.
On board you can rent, at affordable prices, jet skis, parasails or the banana boat.
After this stop, we will continue the journey to Puerto Rico, where we will arrive around 15:00. This marks the end of a full day on the sea and along the coast, which will undoubtedly be one of your best memories of your holiday in Gran Canaria.
- Take measures against sea sickness if you think that you will be sea sick.
- Wear a hat, sun screen and weather appropriate clothing, and consider that the weather might change during the trip.
