Explore the Canary Islands with modern yacht Cherokee from Tenerife to Gran Canaria.
Sail with modern yacht Cherokee from Tenerife to Gran Canaria to explore the Canary Islands. Experience a hidden side to the Canary islands away from the popular tourist hustle and bustle.
Life at Sea
No experience is needed to climb aboard – just a lust for adventure! Get involved with hoisting the sails, taking the helm and some basic navigation along the way. Cherokee is a modern yacht so she is much easier to sail than some of our “hands on” tall ships meaning there is plenty of opportunity to sit back and enjoy the views.
Sailing in the Canary Islands
With a constant North Easterly wind and with the spring-like temperature this time of year, perfect sailing conditions are ensured at the Canary Islands. Set the sails to the island of La Gomera. Depending on the wind, your first destination is likely to be the charming town of San Sebastian, where we will stay a day for an excursion inland.
Sail further to the south side of Tenerife and from there to the harbour Puerto Mogan, on the island of Gran Canaria. Spend a day in Puerto Mogan to visit the beautiful sand dunes of Las Maspalomas before sailing up the coast to the harbour Las Nieves.
On the last day Cherokee sail around the North coast of Gran Canaria to the large port of Las Palmas, where you can end the sailing trip with Tapas and a beer!

Guest berths: 8 Rig: Cutter
In 2008, Jouke Lemmer purchased Cherokee after spending years sailing with his father’s ship amongst others. Cherokee was built in 2000 by award-winning boat builders J & J Design and a year after buying her, Jouke refitted Cherokee radically, transforming her into a truly comfortable charter vessel, giving her a cutter rig and space for a generator so as to offer his passengers power and hot showers!
She is a fast, 16m vessel with a stunning teak deck and spacious cockpit, and she operates with two crew members (her skipper and the bosun/chef). Cherokee is exceptionally good at what she was built to do – pure sailing. Read more about what to expect with life onboard here.
Jouke sails his ship all over the northern hemisphere, leaving Cherokee’s home port of Rotterdam in May and sailing anywhere from the Hebrides and the Channel Islands, the Faroe Islands and Ireland or even down to the North coast of Spain before making the journey back to Holland in October. Join him and his wonderful ship for the adventure of a lifetime – think exhilarating sailing, bucket list destinations and top-notch hospitality.
