Internet

Wifi is available in the marina and provided by a commercial company who have an office near the tunnel under the main road.  Prices start from €2 a day with increasing discounts for the more time you buy.  Connection is variable and often barely useable.

There are also a number of bars in the marina with free Wifi if you buy a coffee, which probably work faster than the marina’s current system. Both yacht clubs have WiFi and there are various internet offices and cafes in town.

There is also a telephone office in Calle Luis Morote (north side of Parque Santa Catalina), open daily 0930 - 2300 (an hour later on Sunday mornings). Reverse charge calls cannot be made here; these are only possible from the main post office, located on Calle Primero de Mayo. Metred calls can be made from other offices showing the green telephone sign.

Mobiles: It is cheap to buy a Spanish mobile and SIM card, typically 20-30€ for a phone and some credit. You will need your passport to buy them. There are many shops phone shops in the city, or visit El Corte Ingles. The main providers in the Canary Islands are Movistar and Vodafone. Orange also have some shops.

I was in Las Palmas in January 2017 and the marina had no space for a 10m yacht. I spent 4 days at the waiting pier and was finally asked to leave or go to the anchorage. My repairs were not completed, but my boat was seaworthy, so I left.
Puerto de Las Nieves - albeit small - was much more accommodating, and I could finish everything there.

Fast forward to April 2017 and my visit of the islands is complete, so I was looking for a place where I could leave my boat for 3 months (April, May and June, maybe July). I sent (the marina) many emails with no answers, and many phone calls were not returned. Finally I decided to just show up.

They told me they would give me a spot for 3 months, but I would have to stay on board, which defeated the purpose. They could not find a spot for a 10m yacht for 3 months during low season in spite of all the free space!

Although the staff is friendly, this port is the most disorganised port I've seen. I feel it takes months of advance planning to have a spot there. Or maybe they just don't care.

We are on the pontoon next to the reception. For a week now we have been complaining that the showers in the building close by, just east of the CEPSA fuel dock has no hot water. Yesterday, just after midday we got hold of the marina manager who promised the problem had been fixed and that we just had to wait for the boiler to warm up. Still this morning no hot water. When we once again reported the problem in the marina office the personal knew nothing of the mater. It seems as if you can report a problem infinite number of times but a written notice is soon ignored.

Warning: the statement above that it is difficult to obtain a place in the marina only before the ARC is not true anymore. Even in mid-December the marina is completely full and yachts are requested to anchor north of the marina to wait for a place. Unfortunately there is currently no working reservation system, even yachts that report to have a reservation are requested to anchor. Communication with the marina is very poor. None of the telephone numbers that are listed here nor on the marinas website were picked up although we tried many times over several days. So the only option is to sail here and wait for an unknown amount of time. There seems to be a waiting list, but the marina's staff does not answer VHF calls regularly, so even finding out one's place on the waiting list is difficult. Such poor organization took us by surprise for the biggest marina in the Canary Islands.

We asked Alisios Sailing Center if its possible to repair our 3 sails (main, genoa and cutter). They said we have first to bring our sails to them. Before they can not say if its possible to do that kind of repairs (very usual repairs in my opinion). They couldnt say us a date it will be finished. So we said we will bring our sails one by one so they could start with the repairs on our cutter sail, so that we could still do our sailing trip to La Gomera with the remaining sails.
After our trip we visited the shop (No phone call was mades to us that it is repaired). In the shop they said the sail was repaired and asked us to pay the bill. I looked at our sail and couldnt really spot out the repairs where repairs were needed in our opinion, so I asked kindly if they can show me the repairs they made. Unwilling they tried to find the spots. They found some indeed, big patches of repairs, where I didnt know of any damaged spots. Next time I go to the sail maker, I ask him to open these patches, to see whats under these patches.
When I asked if its not possible to repair the spots I wanted to get repaired, they answered very annoyed that its difficult and they have to open a big seam. And if there sewing machine brokes down, it takes a long time to repair the machine.
I just thought "Yes ok, as a sail maker you have to open a seam from time to time. And if my sewing machine brokes down all the time as a sail maker, I would buy me a second one and dont make there problem a customers one."
I just stopped any further repairs on my two other sails. When talking to others on the pontoons, they said they know of others having no good experiences.

In my opinion they dont want to fix the problem of the customers , they just look if they can earn some little money on little repairs. Wouldnt have been a problem, if they just have honestly said that to me before they start any repairs.

Avoid the boatyard here. Questionable charges will appear on your final bill and they will not release the boat until they are paid. No negotiation and the manager Carlos is quite rude. Charges for labour even during siesta. Others on our pontoon have had similar experiences - I guess they think we are all passing through and won't see us again anyway. Suggest you try Real Nautico instead. You have been warned..

This comment was posted elsewhere on the site - 26 October 2015:
I can confirm that the DISA plant in Gran Canaria does refill propane bottles/tanks. We have a 6 kg Calor bottle/tank from the UK. They filled it with no adaptor needed. Take the highway from the Muelle Deportivo towards the airport, about 17 km. Take the Salinetas exit. There is an IKEA Almacen, which is the second IKEA on the way to the airport. Go past that and take a right on the second roundabout, in front of the Mercadora supermarket. The entrance to the DISA plant is on your left. They also filled smaller propane bottles from Croatia with no adaptor required.

This charge was for Light Dues. See http://www.noonsite.com/Countries/CanaryIslands?rc=Formalities#Fees for more details. As Light Dues are charged every 30 days, it does make short stays expensive.

Posted on behalf of Direct Yacht Deliveries:
We just got charged €200 (44ft catamaran) by the authorities for stopping off in LasPalmas for 2 nights. This was not the berthing fee. Our other boat visited Tenerife and was not charged.
