The chief commercial and tourist port of Gran Canaria is the one located in Las Palmas. However, for leisure and sports purposes, tourist might want to orient to other welcoming ports. Thus, it seems Puerto de Mogan, Puerto Rico, Marina Anfi del Mar, as well as Puerto Pesquero de Arguineguin are up to the tasks of those who want to explore the surroundings of Gran Canaria by boat. Complementing the platform of the sailing opportunities in south Gran Canaria, there is the so-called Club de Yates Pasito Blanco, but other north alternatives refer to Puerto de Las Nieves and to Puerto de Taliarte.
Thus, tourists can sail either on their own boat or by resorting to the suggestions and services provided by specialized centers. Furthermore, people who want to learn how to sail will be able to do just that in Gran Canaria, since there are several reliable sailing schools on the island which offer such courses. For further explorations of the archipelago, tourists should consider the services offered by the main sea line companies in Gran Canaria: Trasmediterranea, Fred. Olsen and Naviera Armas.
