Owner description: Waverider is the first excursion of its kind to be run on Lanzarote. A 16 seat Parker 1000 Baltic Rib (rigid inflatable boat) powered by Twin Mercury Verado 300 HP engines giving the boat mind blowing top speeds.Waverider however is not just a white knuckle ride, it has got to be one of the most exciting ways to see the Islands costal cliff faces, beautiful golden sandy beaches, volcanic rock formations a unique geology that tells a tale that’s millions of years old.

“Puts the wind in your hair (If you have any!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

One of the last excursions we took during our stay in August/Sept. Wifey, was erring on the Ocean Blast experience but wanted a "Taster" first. So we booked up the Coastal Adventure to Papagayo on 2nd Sept. What a thrilling ride that was, enjoyed the company with a very nice couple and their charming children. Mrs and I sat in the front for the outward journey, enjoying the remarkable scenery on the way to Papagayo and keeping a lookout for the elusive dolphins and whales, they are there but didn't want to give up their siesta to come out and play.

Mrs doesn't swim so stayed in the boat chatting to the crew and the children when they'd had enough of looking at the fish.

On the way back we relegated ourselves to the rear seats allowing the other family to sit at the front. To hear the kids scream with joy as they got sprayed with sea water, as we rode the waves at high speed, put a smile on our faces. Oh what fun! We were going to book the other trip for the 4th but ran out of time as so often happens.

A big thank you to the crew, and we'll definitely be back next year for the Ocean Blast. Only one downfall, they didn't have their polo shirts on sale a the time. I'd love to advertise for them here in the UK. I did leave them my e-mail address but haven't heard from them yet.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

4 of us took this trip in the morning - 2 hour tour to the papagayo beaches. As there was just us there was a suggestion of heading to Las Lobos instead - a tiny little island with about 10 houses. We moored there for a good 40 minutes and snorkelled up to the island. The water was so clear! On the way back he let us all captain the boat! Then he opened up the speed and it was fast!! Definite recommendation!
