If there's one thing you have to do in Gran Canaria, it's to get out on the water. The Afrikat morning cruise is one of the best options and a top excursion recommended by the Gran Canaria Info team.
The Afrikat catamaran was designed and built specifically for cruising the south coast of Gran Canaria. It has lots of deck space, plenty of shade, wide aisles and is very stable.
Add to this the excellent customer service, top reviews and free pickups, and you get one of Gran Canaria's best day trips.
The Afrikat Morning Cruise: The best Gran Canaria catamaran trip
The five hour Afrikat morning cruise runs from from 10.00 to 15.00 during Winter or 09.15 to 14.15 in Summer. It takes a maximum of 67 people and is suitable for wheelchair users.
The Afrikat leaves from Puerto Base in Puerto Rico resort and takes you west along the Gran Canaria coast to a beautiful and secluded cove called El Perchel; the perfect spot for swimming, snorkelling (equipment provided) and watersports (up to 50% cheaper than if you book on land). You even get a free speedboat ride!
On the way to the bay you'll see the pretty beaches at Anfi and Amadores from the ocean and go past Puerto de Mogán and Taurito.
The price includes lunch: Traditional potatoes with “Mojo” sauce, meatballs with sweet sauce, a choice of two salads and bread rolls. Sangria, beer, soft drinks, juice and water are included, while cocktails are well-priced.
Free pickup from Bahia Feliz, Playa del Inglés, Maspalomas, Meloneras, Sonnenland, Arguineguin, Patalavaca, Mogan, Taurito & Playa del Cura.
As with all Afrikat boat trips, you'll need a towel, swimming costume, suncream, camera or fully-charged mobile phone, a sunhat and money or card for watersports or souvenirs.
