At the port itself, you’ll find a number of reliable boat trip operators offering fun excursions around Lanzarote and other islands in the Canaries.

Lanzarote trips and excursions offer plenty of opportunity to take in the best of the Canaries’ gorgeous landscapes and picturesque towns. Lanzarote excursions from Playa Blanca are a great way to mix activities with relaxation while you’re on the island. Some of the must-see destinations on Lanzarote include Timanfaya National Park, a stunning area characterised by volcanoes, and Cueva de los Verdes, an impressive tunnel formed by lava.
Tourist Ticket are the largest operator of excursions in the resort and you can find two of their offices in the town centre and another in the ferry harbour.

You can also embark on a whale watching tour, which is obviously a big hit with children and costs from €65 per adult, with concessions for kids.
