VIP sea excursion with Bussard schooner

Offered in collaboration with OceanExplorer


With the Bussard schooner, this exclusive sea excursion for 12 people starts in the harbour of Tazacorte. The excursion heads northwest, through an area of dramatic cliffs and picturesque enclaves. During the 4 hour tour we will visit the Cueva Bonita, the Porís de La Candelaria and the idyllic Playa de La Veta beach, where we will stop for a succulent lunch. In addition, this marine excursion will allow you to see dolphins and whales in their exclusive natural habitat.

The Aridane Valley and the New Volcano

The entire Aridane Valley view from the sea is breathtaking. Especially the subsequent lava flows empting the lava into the sea. Very recently, La Palma had a dramatic eruption. The lava river pouring into the Atlantic is an impressive sight that is hard to forget. And it is from the sea that it can be seen in all its magnitude.


VIP maritim excursion

Because it is a relaxed sailing, in a small group (maximum 12 people), with excellent food on board, plenty of time for swimming and enjoying the good weather in the west. In short, an unforgettable excursion.

Whale and dolphin watching

Dolphins and whales are wild animals that have their habitat on the coasts of Tazacorte. They can almost always be observed during an excursion, although their presence is not guaranteed. In case you do not see dolphins and whales during your excursion, the ship owner will offer you a courtesy excursion within 2 weeks.
