On average, you can expect to pay around 220€ per day for a sailboat in Tenerife. For motorboats, the range is very wide depending on your needs. The boat available ranges from luxury yachts to fishing boats, so it is recommended to sort by the type of activity you will partake in and which island you choose to go.

Do you need a license to rent a boat in the Canary Islands?
Whether you need a license to rent a boat in the Canary Islands, will depend on what type of boat you are renting. There are two cases when a license will be required. Firstly, if you rent a motorboat with more than 15 horsepower and more than 4 meters in length. Secondly, if you rent a sailboat over 5 meters in size.
If you do not have enough experience or want a stress free vacation, most boats come with the option to have a skipper. An added perk of hiring a local skipper is their knowledge of the must see places. Since most skippers are local, they will be able to show you the hidden gems of the area and you can just sit back and enjoy the beautiful views.
