Let’s look at some itineraries sailing from Tenerife and Gran Canaria – we can package up your entire experience and also include flights and transfers.

Sailing from Tenerife

The Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is a port of fishing, commercial, passenger and sports in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in the Atlantic Ocean. Next to this port is the famous building of the Auditorio de Tenerife. It has a significant relevance in two categories: Cruise Passengers and Fresh Fish caught by the local fishermen. Due to the importance of interinsular maritime transport, it holds a dominant position in Passenger Transport. Some of the world’s largest cruise ships stop here and it’s always a hit with guests. The proximity of two international airports backs up its position as a dominant base for cruises.

Sailing from Gran Canaria

Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is one of the largest cities in Spain and is the largest city in the Canary Islands. The Port of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria receives ships from all over the world. As a beach town, Las Palmas is especially popular for ocean-side activities. Catch a wave, grab your snorkel, or just soak up some sun. The south of the island is hot, dry, relatively arid and home to brash new resorts such as Playa del Inglés. The north and centre of the island are cooler, and wetter, and retain more of a Spanish colonial atmosphere. The dramatic lush interior features spectacular volcanic peaks. The capital of Las Palmas functions as a bustling cosmopolitan city and a popular seaside. Those arriving by cruise ship can appreciate the island’s spectacular setting between two bays as they sail into the biggest port in Spanish territory. Most of the island’s top sights are in the north, situated within 30 minutes or so of Las Palmas. However, Las Palmas itself has a variety of first-class attractions plus an excellent golden beach, Playa de las Canteras, which is a 15-minute walk from the cruise terminal (as is the city centre).
