Boat Rental

Possibly the best way to explore and enjoy the Costa Blanca is by boat. There are several boat rental agencies in Calpe, Moraira and Altea. They can provide you with everything from sailing boats and yachts to a jetski. Some boats require a license but most agencies also offer boats with a skipper.

Since the Roman times fishermen have gone out to catch Bluefin Tuna in the waters along the Costa Blanca. From Moraira you can still go out today to try and catch a real Mediterranean tuna. The best time of the year for fishing tuna is from the end of April until July and to a certain extent September and October.
