The beautiful Canary Island of Gran Canaria attracts tourism for numerous reasons, but one of the main attractions are the marinas in Gran Canaria.

Due to the seafaring nature of the people of the Canaries and the importance of the tourism sector, Gran Canaria has developed a very complete harbour infrastructure, which includes marinas and fishing havens.

Many of the latter also allow entry to leisure yachts, while all the harbours provide the basic services that make the prolonged mooring of vessels possible, in addition to the possibility of practicing the various water sports.

Puerto de la Luz y Las Palmas, to give its official name, is a busy commercial port. The movement of all vessels is monitored from a control tower in the Port Authority building. If in any doubt one should contact Port Control on channel 16 or 10, who will then advise to switch to a working channel. Yachts entering or leaving should look out for commercial traffic, particularly the fast ferries.

The yacht harbour, Muelle Deportivo, lies at the southern end of the main harbour. It is administered by the Port Authority.

The yacht quay currently has 1.134 mooring places, which makes this the biggest yacht quay in the Canaries, and it is protected by two seawalls that give shelter to a surface area of 210.000 m2. The main seawall is 600 metres long and there are 70 stern-to-pier mooring places that can accommodate vessels with a maximum length of 45 metres. The enclosing seawall, which is also 600 metres long, has five floating quays with 150 mooring places that can each accommodate a maximum length of 16 metres. On the harbour side, which lies adjacent to the city, there are 12 floating quays, with a total of 864 mooring places for boats with a maximum length of 16 metres.

This quay, which is situated in the cosmopolitan and dynamic city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, within one of the most important commercial harbours in the Atlantic (although it is completely independent from the main harbour), is the ideal place for making preparations for Atlantic crossings, such as the ARC (Atlantic Rally for Cruisers) Regatta, which sets out from this harbour every year with 200 participants from different countries.

Entrance: the entrance into the marina is hard to detect and the situation is made more confusing by the entrance being marked by two red flashing lights, the one to be left to starboard being located at the eastern end of the northern breakwater, the other (port side) at the northern end of the main (southern) breakwater. Vessels should favour the starboard side of the narrow entrance as the port side is fouled and shallow.

Until the new reception dock becomes operational, arriving yachts should tie up at the Texaco fuel station at the northern end of the main dock where a port official will meet them and assign a berth. If arriving outside of office hours one should take one of the spaces on the main quay. One should not go to a pontoon unless instructed to do so by a port official.

Formalities are completed in the port office (Tel. 928 244 101) at the southern end of the marina. In 2006 the office will move to a new building at the entrance to the marina, next to the Texaco fuel station. The captain should report during office hours (0700 -1400 daily) with the ship's papers and passports. No other formalities are normally necessary for EU boats having only EU nationals on board. Crew members who are leaving the Canaries by air must take their passports to the immigration office (Policia de Frontera, Tel 928 264 431) located at the eastern end of the main Port Authority building (Edificio Autoridad Portuaria) in the port compound. This can be reached by taxi or bus no.1.

Docking

A reception dock will start being used in 2006. This will be located on the port side immediately past the marina entrance. The marina office is located here. The marina was refurbished in 2005 and a floating pontoon has been installed along the main quay making docking much easier. Larger yachts normally come stern-to the main quay after picking up a mooring buoy or dropping their own anchor. Yachts under 12 metres tie up to one of visitors' pontoons along the northern breakwater. There is water and electricity to all berths. There is a shower block, keys for which can be obtained from the port office. For stays longer than a month there is a discount, if port fees are paid in advance. It is also possible to anchor in the area north of the marina. Dinghies can be left at one of the pontoons.

The fishing harbour is used extensively by the cooperative Cofradia de Pescadores de Arguineguín and space for visiting boats is limited. The inner breakwater has been extended, but all spaces on the pontoons are taken up by local fishing boats. Visitors must anchor outside and take stern lines to the inner breakwater, or anchor in the well-protected area between the harbour and the beach.

Being located in one of the main tourist areas in the South of Gran Canaria, this harbour and the village in which it is situated have undergone considerable development, but without sacrificing the essential seafaring character of the village. The harbour is sheltered by a 429,33 metre-long seawall, which is used by the local fishing fleet as well as the boats that operate the regular sea routes. There are also 3 floating quays, which are used by the smaller fishing boats and pleasure boats.

The harbour provides 24-hour surveillance and all the mooring places have electricity and water supply. The dry dock has a 70-tonne travel lift, a crane with a capacity of 3 tonnes, workshops that do repairs and other businesses that supply ships.

Skippers are advised to enquire if there is space before they arrive, otherwise visiting yachts berth at the main wharf until a place is found for them. On arrival visitors must report to the port office, open 0800-1300, 1500-1700 Monday to Friday, Tel. 928 73 64 41, which is at the north end of the large shed on the dock, where the Cofradia also has its office. They will then be assigned a berth, yachts being usually accommodated at the main quay. There are a few moorings for yachts to come stern-to the outer breakwater which is fronted by large rocks.

The harbour is sheltered by a 400 metre-long seawall with a ramp, which is used by the fishing fleet, while there are also 3 floating quays for small pleasure boats. The harbour provides 24-hour surveillance and the dry dock, which has a 25-tonne travel lift and a crane with a capacity of 1.5 tonnes, is run by the Cooperativa de Pescadores (Fishermen's Cooperative).

Puerto de Las Nieves, which is located in the Northeast of the island, is the closest harbour to the island of Tenerife. It is for this reason that the harbour is currently being shared by the fishing fleet, pleasure boats and the high speed ferries that operate the regular routes between Gran Canaria and Tenerife.

The fishing village in which the harbour is situated is very popular among tourists and the local population alike, not only because of its charm, but also on account of the typical restaurants that line its streets and promenades.

The harbour provides 24-hour surveillance, while also having a ramp, a 70-tonne travel lift and a crane with a capacity of 1.5 tonnes.

The harbour is sheltered by a 616 metre-long seawall, which is shared by ferries and the bigger fishing boats, while the four 250 metre-long floating quays are for the smaller fishing boats and pleasure boats.

Blue flag marina

The harbour of Mogán is a modern yachting harbour that exists in perfect harmony with an apartment complex and a small hotel that are well known for their picturesque beauty.

The harbour’s seawall is 275 metres long and provides shelter to a surface area of 36,560 m2. The harbour provides moorage to both leisure yachts and the local fishing fleet, for which an area is reserved at the rear of the marina. 36 of the 216 mooring places for leisure yachts are stern-to-pier and can accommodate boats with a maximum length of 45 metres, while a further 180 are distributed along 4 floating quays, accommodating boats with a maximum length of 20 metres. The harbour also has a large area for anchoring.

The harbour provides a 24-hour private surveillance service, as well as a postal service, public telephones, a laundry service, a supermarket, a medical service and meteorological information. There are also toilets and showers distributed throughout the marina. All the mooring places have water and electricity points, while there are also television connections on three of the four floating quays. There is a service station in the harbour and the dry dock has a 70 tonne travel lift, two 2.5 tonne cranes and a ramp.

The port monitors VHF channel 12 at all times, and uses channel 6 as a working channel. On arrival, visiting yachts should come alongside the reception dock on the starboard side of the entrance opposite the Mobil station and report to the marina office. This is located on the first floor of the three-storey control tower overlooking the reception dock Outside of office hours, there is a watchman patrolling the marina with a VHF radio tuned to channel 6. If directed to the outer mole, visitors should pick up a dead mooring and come stern to the floating dock.

Docking

Arriving boats should come alongside the reception dock on the starboard side as one enters the marina. Many of the moorings on the pontoons are privately owned, but the 190 metre long outer wharf is reserved for visitors. The marina has a capacity of just over 200 berths, of which 50% are available to visitors in summer and 20% in winter, the busier season. As Mogan is a popular port among transatlantic voyagers, those who wish to leave their boats here should reserve a place well in advance, especially during the busy season from the end of October to February.

All pontoon berths have water and electricity, also telephone connections and even a television and video link. There are showers and toilets on the outer quay reserved for visitors, for which a key must be obtained from the marina office. There are also showers and toilets on the ground floor of the control tower. A weather synopsis is posted every day on the notice board outside the marina office. Mogan operates its own inshore rescue service, the only such service on Gran Canaria's south coast, and has two large inflatable boats.

There is an anchorage east of the marina entrance which is occasionally used by cruising boats for short periods.

Opening Hours: 0800-1500 Monday-Friday, 0900-1300 Saturday

One of the most attractive marinas in the Canaries, Puerto Mogan is often full to capacity.
