Canary Islands Overview
Year-round warmth: sunshine cruises in the Canary Islands
Scattered 70 miles off the coast of Africa, the Canary Islands combine European sophistication with a superb African climate. The area is known for its year-round warmth, which is why Canary Islands Cruises are perfect for sunbathers or those just wanting to relax in the sunshine, either during a day ashore or on the deck of your cruise ship. Alternatively, you can swim, sail, snorkel or simply stroll your way around the magnificent islands of Gran Canaria, Tenerife, Lanzarote and La Gomera.
Easily accessible from UK ports, our Canary Island cruises enable you to take in all these islands have to offer: from the dramatic scenery and volcanic mountains to the wide, sandy beaches. You can also opt to visit cruise destinations further afield, from Funchal in Madeira, Mindelo in the Cape Verde Islands to Dakar in Senegal and Casablanca in Morocco.
We take great pride in providing world-class service that is friendly and accessible. Our Canary Islands Cruises all take full advantage of our comfortable and well-stocked cruise ships for a truly memorable travel experience.

Canary Islands Climate
Taking a Canary Island cruise holiday, at any time of year, virtually guarantees warm weather.
- Average Temperature: 20-22°C
- Summer Highs: Mid 30s°C
- Average Winter Temperature: 18°C
- Average Summer Temperature: 24°C
With the northern shores of the Canary Islands being exposed to northwesterly winds they tend to be rather wetter than the sheltered southern coasts. On a cruise holiday in West Africa, you will enjoy a hotter and dryer climate in comparison to the dominant spring temperatures of the Canary Islands. Even on the hotter days on the beach it can be pleasantly cooler higher up, and during a winter cruise holiday some warm clothing is essential.
