Fuerteventura is an ingenious holiday destination. Even in the winter months you can go sailing relaxed with pleasant temperatures. Sail on the Atlantic Ocean and anchor in front of small bays and beaches. Take a dip in the refreshing crystal clear waters.
Why should I go sailing on Fuerteventura?
Fuerteventura is a beautiful Canary Island that can be circumnavigated all year round. There are even only about 120 kilometres to the Moroccan coast. Or make a short excursion to the neighbouring island Lanzarote, which is only 12 kilometres north of Fuerteventura. But already the coast of Fuerteventura is worth it. Sail to the most different volcanic landscapes and admire the colourfulness of the volcanic rock in contrast to the sea.
On Fuerteventura you can learn to sail either actively or with a sailing catamaran. But we also recommend to take part in one of the many beautiful boat trips with sailing boats and/or catamarans. These tours include food, drinks and often the pick up from your accommodation, no matter where it is on the island. All boat trips / sailing trips include swimming stops. Snorkeling equipment is available on board.
When can I go sailing on Fuerteventura?
You can also sail on Fuerteventura all year round as the temperatures are between 20 and 26 degrees all year round. In winter the warm winds come from the Sahara. These ensure a pleasant climate.

For whom is sailing on Fuerteventura suitable?
Sailing is an activity that is suitable for everyone. No matter if you want to do a great sailing trip with your family or just for two or with friends, everything is possible.

Sailing has long since ceased to be just an activity for the well-heeled. Sailing is also possible with a small budget. A day sailing trip including food and drinks is bookable from 80,- Euro. Half-day tours are also offered, in which you can sail to the most beautiful bays in a few hours and also have time for a swim stop.
Suitable for everyone: A day on the sea
Anybody can sail. No matter if you have a sailing license and can charter your own boat or if you have never sailed before. You can also rent a sailing ship with a skipper or a complete crew and sail the Atlantic Ocean exclusively. The route is not always according to your wishes, because the weather or the wind has a word to say.
For experienced sailors: charter your own boat on Fuerteventura
Experienced sailors can of course charter a sailing ship by showing their sailing licence. You can choose between three options: Rent a sailing ship completely without crew, or only with skipper or also with the entire crew. The decision is up to you.
For beginners: charter your own boat with skipper
Beginners also have some options to get their money's worth. Rent a sailing ship with a skipper and help him sail. This option is also great for children, as you can also help out a little and get a little explanation of sailing. Or you can charter a sailboat with an entire crew who will take sailing into their hands for you. Relax and let us take you to the most beautiful spots of the Atlantic Ocean. There is also the option of half-day or full-day sailing on a guided tour that follows a fixed route.
