Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, Canary Islands Cruise Port

The Canary Islands aren’t filled with the chirpy yellow birds. Instead this island chain territory of Spain was believed to be named after dogs or seals, known as sea dogs. Las Palmas is the co-capital of the Canary Islands. It shares this position with Santa Cruz on Tenerife. The island’s beauty is matched by its temperate climate. The summers usually stay in the upper 70s to lower 80s and the winters don’t get colder than 50 degrees. Despite being a Spanish territory, the Canary Islands are located along the coast of Morocco and Western Sahara. Contact our expert consultants for help planning a cruise to Las Palmas, Gran Canaria.
