The Marina

Marina radio contact

It is always a good idea to call the marina in advance before arrival. You may have to use the telephone as they do not always respond to VHF.


The Las Palmas Marina (also refereed to as Muelle Deportivo) is located within the large commercial harbor. Usually dock 18 is reserved for visiting yachts. There are laid moorings. The marina is large and comfortable, it can accommodate 900 yachts. The marina office/reception berth (open daily (0700 -1200, 1700-1900) is next to the Fuel berth on the south side of the marina entrance.

Several yachts are anchored offshore, right next to the marina breakwater. This is free.


Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is a port of entry to Canaries. For details on procedures see Canaries.


An attendant will direct you to a berth.

It is the departure port for the ARC and therefore very busy/full October through 3rd week November
