Malaga Catamaran Tour Tips

I have been on two catamaran tours in Malaga, and here are some practical tips you should be aware of before booking your tour.


All of the catamarans that run trips from Malaga have pretty much identical facilities . You have seating on the main floor of the boat, with toilets at the end or front, and a bar located in the middle.

From the bar, you can get a soft drink, and alcohol, including small snacks.

The bar service usually starts as soon as the boat departs from the port. On the top floor, there are more seating options available.

In the front of the catamaran, you will find a mesh net (usually four of them), which gets taken pretty much immediately as people board the boat. 

Remember that you will be spending a lot of time in the sun, so wear comfortable clothes, a hat and bring some sunscreen.

I have not had any issue with sea sickness while on board, but I know other people have. This was a cruise in early autumn, which is unlikely to happen in the summer months.


In the summer months, catamaran sailing trips are very popular and they tend to sell out quite quickly . A lot of these trips are also running only a few days per week, so keep that in mind and book your tickets in advance.

You can also buy tickets on the spot, but you might end up paying more, or there won’t be tickets available. 


You can take kids of any age on a catamaran tour, the access for a pram is not an issue at all, and there is lots of space to navigate with a pram.

The toilets on the catamaran are really tiny and there is no baby-changing facility.

It does also get pretty windy, so keep that in mind and wrap up the little ones.

They do sell tickets on the spot, but often the seats are all taken and the cruises get quite busy. Getting a ticket in advance will guarantee you get a spot on the cruise.

I also recommend getting to the dock early, so you can choose the best seats on the catamaran. Especially if you’re planning to sunbath and want to sit on the net, you need to be one of the first ones to get on the boat.

What is the best swimming cruise in Malaga?

The most popular option is this cruise , which has a short swimming stop as part of the cruise experience.

Final Thoughts

Exploring Malaga on board of a luxury catamaran is one of the best ways to experience the city!

The best time to explore Malaga on a catamaran is in the spring and summer, when the sea is still very calm, so you will get a very smooth sailing experience.
