The Canarian archipelago offers sailors a whole new world to explore. Whilst keen sailors can choose to visit as many of the islands as time allows, those with less ambitious plans may enjoy the small uncrowded anchorages and fishing harbours in the immediate vicinity such as Los Lobos or Lanzarote. There are also a few sailing schools, where you can learn right from scratch.
The clear blue Atlantic waters surrounding the islands are home to a large variety of sea mammals including whales, dolphins and porpoises. It is not unusual to see loggerhead turtles and flying fish regularly skim the waves.
