Prepayment discounts for long-tearm occupancy

We offer a series of discounts with prepayment for longer stays. This simply means paying for your stay upon arrival. Under normal circumstances, this can be extended at the same rate in the event that you wish to prolong the stay. These are available as follows:

  • Occupancy over 15 days:  10%
  • Occupancy over 30 days (or one month): 20%
  • Occupancy over 90 days (or three months):  30%

Make Marina La Palma your home port

Spanish maritime and navigation rates affecting cruisers in the Canaries

Tasa de ayuda a la navigacion (Navigational Assistance rates or the “Lighthouse tax”)

Very briefly, the majority of costs incurred by the Spanish Maritime Safety and Rescue Agency (Sociedad de Salvamento y Seguridad Marítima (SASEMAR)) were being found to be covered by the General State Budget rather than maritime entities – i.e. those enjoying the very services provided. Redressing the balance then, those sailing in Spanish waters are then requested to make a contribution to these services.

There is a little inconsistency in where the law is applied, but all ports and marinas under the control of the Port Authorities (essentially those in basins shared by commercial ports: Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Las Palmas, Arrecife, San Sebastian (La Gomera), Santa Cruz de La Palma, etc) are strictly obliged to charge these additional rates. Non port authority-run marinas are still a grey area.

Visiting Yachts

It is not all bad news however; Calero Marinas has worked hard to help with a sector-driven lobby to prevent transient visitors from suffering what is universally considered to be an unfair application of the Navigational Assistance rates where in previous years, an entire year’s worth of rates could be charged for what amounted to only a few days’ visit. As a consequence, visiting yachts from aboard (without a home port in Spain) are now charged a daily rate. Importantly, sailing boats of 12m LOA or less are exempt.

Visitor Rates:

Motor <9m                                                  0.0625 € /m²/day
Sail > 12m / Motor ≥ 9m                       0.0250 € /m²/day

Home Port:

If a yacht is based in a Spanish port (also considered to be the case after 6 months’ occupancy), things are a little different and the yacht will be expected to demonstrate payment of the full year’s rates.

Motor <9m                                                  22.8 € /m²/per annum
Sail > 12m / Motor ≥ 9m                       9.12 € /m²/per annum

Tasa de Embarcaciones deportivas y de recreo (Recreational vessel rates -T-5)

This is also charged by day (i.e. a single night’s berthing corresponds to two days’-worth of rates) and calculated according to a yacht’s m² – or LOA x Beam (m).

Sailing boats <12m LOA and motor boats<9m are favoured, paying a lesser rate.

After 6 months, “home port” status is achieved, affording a lower daily rate.

Current rates are as follows:


Sail ≥12m / Motor ≥ 9m                                       0.0484 € /m²/day
Sail < 12m / Motor < 9m                                      0.0186 € /m²/day

Home Port (after 6 months’ occupancy):

Sail ≥12m / Motor ≥ 9m                                      0.0397 € /m²/day
Sail < 12m / Motor < 9m                                     0.0124 € /m²/day


LOA (length over all) includes bowsprits, diving platforms, etc. 
IGIC, or Canarian VAT is applicable to all services and recreational vessel rates (but NOT to navigational assistance rates), at 7%
In Marina La Palma, a 20% discount is applied to the Tasa de Ayuda a la Navegación (T-0) and 25% discount to the Tasa de Embarcaciones de Recreo (T-5)
