Lanzarote Sightseeing and Beach Hopping Waterbus
Hop on and stop off at Marina Rubicon and Papagayo beach with this waterbus taxi service from Playa Blanca. Settle aboard the glass-bottomed catamaran and cruise to Marina Rubicon and if you wish, on to Papagayo to enjoy its sands and clear seas. As you cruise, observe sea life through the underwater windows and gaze out over Lanzarote’s south coast. The waterbus departs several times daily, except on Tuesdays and Sundays.
What to Expect
Start your journey from the harbor at Playa Blanca by boarding the express waterbus. This water taxi catamaran features submarine views and is a great, low-cost way to admire Lanzarote’s south coast and enjoy a hop-on hop-off journey to and from Marina Rubicon and Papagayo beach.

Cruise to Marina Rubicon and if you wish, hop off to explore the Marina village or visit the Marina Rubicon Market, held here on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Continue your journey along the coastline as you observe Lanzarote’s fish and other marine life through the underwater windows.

Then, hop off at Papagayo beach, regarded as the island’s best beach. Relax on the sands here and swim in the crystal-clear seas before your return trip.

Alternatively, simply make the round-trip journey to enjoy the cruise.

The trip around the coast was lovely but as we approached the beach they started handing out life vests and saying we had to wade through waist high water. We thought they were kidding, but they weren't! The passengers had to climb into a dinghy...More

Hey Thanks but there is no other way for you to be taken ashore to a beach any other way the taxi boat is huge it would be grounded if it went near the beach!
