The port of Agaete, Puerto de las Nieves, used to be the preferred place to get a view of El Dedo de Dios, a natural monument on the coastline, before the latter was destroyed during tropical storm Delta in November 2005. The port is a common endpoint for day tours from more touristic areas of the island.

The approach to Puerto de las Nieves is straightforward but the last phase of the entrance maneuver requires a turn towards the N with little field due to the proximity of the lows rocky and rocky that make up the coast in that area. Winds, often intense in this area, add complication to the maneuvers.

Warning: Beware of the fast ferry (30+ knots) when approaching the port as it only slows down at the entrance.
