Memorable and fantastic experience
Oct 2021 • Couples
Absolutely amazing boat trip which was a real highlight of our holiday.
Very well organised, beautiful boat, chance to relax/swim/drink/water sports (if you want).
We didn’t do any water sports as we were just happy to relax and swim in the bay.
We went on the included speed boat ride and Potter was so knowledgable of the coastline and took us to some beautiful spots.
Boat was immaculately clean and spacious, cruising back in the sun with a lovely saxophonist was fabulous.
Couldn’t recommend enough and would 100% do it again if visiting Gran Canaria again.
Thank you Afrikat team for a wonderful memorable experience!

Highlight of our holiday!
I would not be exaggerating by saying this trip was the highlight of our holiday. So glad we did it. All inclusive dinks (soft, sangria and beer) with the beer tap accessible so you could just help yourself. A lovely trip along the coast before stopping in a sheltered bay where you could have a swim, relax on board or do a host of water sport activities. These were at an additional cost but were not overpriced and the staff were not pushy. If you didn’t want to do them and just relax - no problem! We did parasailing and donut ride which was so much fun - as was the speed boat trip which was included in the price! Food was lovely - make sure you try the mojo sauce!! The staff were all really friendly, especially the host of the trip Potter. Knowledgeable, funny and clearly cared deeply for providing a great experience for all guests! The real highlight was Ashleigh playing the saxophone on our return. During sunset, it really was very very special! I’d certainly recommend booking a trip when she is on board! All in all, a fantastic afternoon - thank you to the Afrikat team! Can’t wait to come again next time we are in Gran Canaria!

Fantastic afternoon!
A fabulous afternoon on the Afrikat 69. Started with a warm welcome from the shore staff and the onboard crew kept this up and did not let us down (shout out to the crew leader, Potter, who is fantastic, comical and made the afternoon even better!)

A relaxing cruise around the south east corner of Gran Canaria (drinks and a late lunch / early dinner are included). Stopping for a while at a gorgeous remote bay with lovely views, you have the opportunity to relax, swim in the Atlantic or take up the option (additional cost) for water activities.

The journey back to Puerto Rico was made extra special by the onboard saxophonist Ashleigh. Popular tunes with 5* saxophone accompanist, with the sun setting behind made a perfect end to the afternoon.

Do note that the boat has indoor seating and outdoors, however seating with a back (chair style) is limited outside - outside there are plentiful padded floor loungers however. While the boat is fully accessible, do get in touch beforehand if you’d like an outside chair style seat. I’m sure the lovely Afrikat team will accommodate you perfectly.

If you’re after a lovely afternoon, that little extra with Afrikat is a good investment over the the other options available for a boat trip from Puerto Rico! Our top recommendation is to select an Afrikat cruise that includes the saxophonist - she is perfect!

Thank you once again and we look forward to joining you when next in Gran Canaria!

Best experience in Gran Canaria!
Aug 2021
Lets start off with the staff, they were all incredible. Each and everyone of them were so friendly and seemed to love their jobs and be so pleased to be working again. All can speak multiple languages and the main host was hilarious and made us laugh so much all day.

The boat is spotless, brand new and because of the limited number of people on board due to restrictions it felt even more exclusive! Great music played all day and great drinks all included (beer, sangria, and soft drinks) and cocktails available to buy- we bought the 'crews favourite' which was amazing. You also get to keep the plastic cup they give you for your drinks at the beginning which is a nice souvenir.

Lunch included was clearly fresh, potatoes, pasta, meatballs and some lovely salad and bread. Nothing outstanding but was all really tasty.

The sights were brilliant to see and we took our own snorkelling equipment, heaps of fish to see and the crew even through bread to the fish which had them come to the surface which had us all screaming! Complimentary speed boat ride was amazing which took us to a little cove with red crabs all over.

To top it all off as the sun was going down a lovely saxophone player Ashley came on board and played for us all. Best experience we had in Gran Canaria and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Wow, wow, wow!
What an amazing experience! From the moment we stepped on the boat (which alone, is incredible), we were made to feel so welcome by all the crew and nothing was too much to ask. The crew spoke multiple languages and had a lot of light hearted banter, that we loved! This is a must do experience in Gran Canaria, and even better, is completed with an amazing live saxophone performance for the last hour! We will definitely be back again! Thank you so much for an amazing day!

Like. You have to try this boat trip!
The crew is making this a totally amazing experience and you get to see som shades of Gran Canaria!
Everything was great!
You get served food on board, which is actually quite good and well cooked.
You get the true vacation vibe on this boat and kind of disconnect to the remaining world, which is kind of nice when you’re on holiday
