My Story

Hi, I’m Javi, your guide for every trip with LOBOS EXPLORER.

I was born in Fuerteventura and have lived here all my life. In 2017, I started to offer excursions to Lobos by Zodiac, so that people could experience a relaxing and exciting day and learn a bit more about me and my history.

I lived part of my childhood on this small island, as my family is deeply connected to it. My grandfather was the lighthouse keeper of Lobos for 60 years since 1938. I have spent countless days and nights with him on the island. The lighthouse on Lobos Island became the second home of my grandfather and his family.

That is why my family enjoys a small fisherman’s cottage in Lobos, which we have enjoyed from generation to generation, and now I would like you to enjoy it too if you join me on my excursion to the island.

I hope I can show you the island and make sure you have a great time!

The Boat: A Zodiac

We navigate you through the Atlantic Ocean with a Zodiac. It is an inflatable sports boat, a so called Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB). While it it fast, it is also extremely stable and safe. The perfect combination for our excursions. So, what exactly is a Zodiac Boat Tour? Instead of slowly cruising over the ocean, a Zodiac tour is quite faster and closer to sealevel. So, going by Zodiac feels a little bit more adventurous than a cruise. However, you will be surprised by its stability as it has less surface area to be hit by the waves, so it does not rock like other boats. The Zodiac also allows us to jump into the water and back on board easily. This makes it an ideal boat for snorkelling.

About Lobos Island

A remote island between Fuerteventura and Lanzarote: That's Lobos Island or "Isla de Lobos" how it's called in spanish. As a Natural Park, Lobos is an untouched and uninhabited island, which makes its an authentic and original canarian piece of land, unaffected by tourism and its infrastructure. Like Fuerteventura, Lobos is of volcanic origin, creating a desert-like landscape peaked with volcanoes. The highest one is the Caldera with roughly 125m, allowing for a great view on Fuerteventura and Lanzarote once you climbed it. Even though a lot of the island is protected and thus not open for exploring, Lobos is still worth a visit for discovering its rough landscape and beautiful beaches & lagoons with crystal clear water that are open for tourists.
