Fun Boat Charters
There is no better way to enjoy the Costa Blanca's beautiful islands and diverse coastline than from the sea, and visitors staying in or near Torrevieja have a choice of fun boat charters that will make a holiday memory to cherish. There are some wonderful places to visit along Costa Blanca's coastline, however not all of them are accessible from land due to hazards such as dangerous rocks and sheer cliff faces, so to fully appreciate the coast's hidden beauty, try one of the fun boat charters offered by Charter Boat Volante.

Run by English skipper Kevin who has over 30 years experience in the industry, Volante is a 33 foot Blyth catamaran that is exceptionally stable at sea with its twin hulls and is fully insured and licensed for up to 2 crew and 12 passengers. The boat's main deck has sun shade and there are kitchen and BBQ facilities on board, as well as ablutions and the latest navigation and safety equipment.
Tabarca Island Charter – Lying off the headland of Santa Pola is Tabarca Island that has been declared a marine conservation reserve and is the Costa Blanca's only inhabited island. The duration of the boat trip is about 7 hours and starts with a 1 hour cruise from Torrevieja to Tabarca. Once at the island the boat lays anchor in a sandy cove within an easy swim from the island and its legendary seafood restaurants. Here you can spend the day at your leisure swimming and snorkelling in the crystal clear waters and feeding the fish, exploring the island or just kicking back on the boat with a cold drink. Passengers can opt to bring a packed lunch, eat in one of the island's restaurants or use the BBQ facilities on the boat. Hot & cold drinks are provided in the cost and if you haven't brought your own, a BBQ package is available at an added cost. Heading back to Torrevieja passengers can choose to stop for a bit of fishing or swimming and once closer to port the skipper will get the rubber doughnut out for some fun.
Coastline Charter – This trip is not as long as Tabarca, being around 5 hours and takes in the splendid scenery of the Costa Blanca coastline that can only be fully appreciated from a boat. After a few miles of sailing the boat anchors in a sheltered bay where passengers can just chill out, explore the bay or enjoy swimming, snorkelling, fishing and a few goes on the doughnut. Hot & cold drinks are provided in the cost and passengers are welcome to bring along a picnic.
Evening BBQ Cruise – This is one of the most popular fun boat charters that leaves the marina between 5 and 6 pm and after cruising down the coast anchors in a sheltered bay where passengers can enjoy the evening swimming and snorkelling. After working up an appetite passengers can tuck into a delicious BBQ of various meats, salad garnish, bread, wine, beer and soft drinks. Total cruise time is roughly 3 hours for a maximum of 10 persons.
