WHALE AND DOLPHIN WATCHING, AND THE MARINE LIFE OF LANZAROTE
Lanzarote yacht charter is a company that specializes in boat and luxury yacht charter and rental based in Marina Rubicon. Amongst the activities that we do there is costal, offshore and sunset cruises. It´s worth mentioning the marine life richness of the Canary Islands , specifically Lanzarote.
During our navegations its common to sight different species of marine animals like marine birds , turles, whales and dolphins. Generally we offer private cruises, so depending on what you wish to see ,we visit different areas of the island. From our base in Marina Rubicon we can get to either East or West coast in just 10 minutes, as well as the Bocaina strait (Pelagic bird special protection area). The dolphins regularly accompany us during our passage, their curious and intelligent instinct makes them approach the boat and it´s so impressive to see the jumps and the speeds of these marine animals which will delight you.
It´s also common to see pilot whales, mink whales and beaked whales. During the summer and autumn months we see a lot of tutles that are heading to the Cofete beaches to lay they eggs during the full moon.
From September and throughout the winter we can see different types of whales , just yesterday we were witnesses of a spectacle that involved many brides whales and hundreds of common and striped dolphins that were attacking bait balls on the surface South West of Pechiguera lighthouse , just 3 miles from our base at Marina Rubicon. We always offer our clients that have a license, the possibility to rent one of our boats without a skipper so they enjoy even more their experience.
