Lanzarote For Kids

“What's there to do for kids?” - that's the main concern of most parents when booking a holiday. Fortunately Lanzarote has something to offer even the choosiest of children.  With some great activities available both on land, at sea and even beneath the waves.

Underwater Adventure

Submarine Safaris

Submarine Safaris excursionThe 3.5 million dollar Yellow Submarine, based in Puerto Calero, is a surefire hit with kids. It's specially designed for underwater exploration – offering two very large viewing ports at either end, another 22 portals throughout the comfortable and spacious cabin and TV screens which ensure you can view all of the action outside from every angle.

The Sub dives to the floor of the Atlantic Ocean for an hour – and the clarity of the water means that kids get an incredible insight into the marine world around Lanzarote. A diver further enhances the experience by feeding the fish, so attracting even more marine wildlife to the viewing windows.

Dives take place four times a day, seven days a week and you are picked up and transported to Puerto Calero as part of the deal, with the dive itself lasting around one hour.  The cost is €48 per adult and €28 per child.

Catlanza Catamaran excursionIf you're looking for an excursion that combines excitement for the kids and relaxation for the grown ups – all in a safe and secure environment - then a day of luxury Catamaran sailing with Catlanza should top your list.

Catlanza's giant catamaran has a twin hull, which ensures smooth sailing. So even children in pushchairs are welcome on board. Once on board kids can join up with the crew and help them sail the boat and raise the giant sails. Once anchored off the beautiful beaches at Papagayo there’s also plenty to keep them busy as they can enjoy a free jet-ski ride (with an instructor) and learn to snorkel.

The excursion includes free food and drink – including the child friendly option of pasta with either a tuna or vegetarian sauce, plenty of salad and fresh fruit.
