Hello and welcome!
He's Fabien, your French adventure companion
and activity consultant in the Canary Islands. And I'm Carolyn, the Brit in the equation ready to help guide you and answer all and any questions about your holiday, as well as helping you book various outdoor activities, in English
This is what we do:
IN THE CANARY ISLANDS
A friend on call to give you a helping hand
Going on holiday to a foreign country, when you don’t know anyone or speak the language is never easy. We know it, we have traveled for years across the globe in search of unique experiences before settling in theCanary Islands a while ago.
We now know the islands like the back of our hand, from Lanzarote to Tenerife via Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria. We have decided to share (on the site via Fab’s blog and our amusing videos) our experiences, advice and above all our contacts which will be useful for you to avoid tourist traps, overpaying and to take full advantage of your holiday destination.
In short, everything you need to enjoy your time in the Canary Islands!
The Crazy Canary Spirit
While most are developing mass tourism, aimed at foreign tourists, with no regard for people’s actual wants or needs, soley focussing on selling selling selling regardless of the quality. At Crazy Canary it’s the complete opposite! Our aim and way of thinking is to offer you tried and tested (personally by us!) activities and places worth visiting. This is why we select serious service providers who guarantee safety first, a warm welcome and a guide or instructor who speaks English so that you can take full advantage of all our activities (surfing, jetskiing, paragliding and many others!). These service providers, have now become friends of ours, and will welcome you as such.
As you will see from our little videos, one or both of us have tried all the activities we offer . We can answer all your questions and provide you with valuable advice.
With Crazy Canary, you will therefore benefit from the advice of a local who will recommend qualified and top quality activity providers… and all this at no additional cost to you! (And yes, I am your direct contact and I book all your activities, but you will not pay any fees. You will also not pay any more than you would going direct to the activity providers….But don’t worry, we don’t have to survive on love and stale bread, our activity providers pay us a pre-negotiated commission).
An adviser, a real one, in flesh and blood
You can also have a look at Fab’s blog section (hilariously translated by a bot) or contact me directly for advice on accommodation (hotels or apartments), restaurants (restaurant, bar, grocery store, etc.) or visits not to be missed in the Canary Islands . In addition, as I would for a mate, I will be happy to help you organize your holidays (I can guide you on transport solutions, accommodation, activities, administrative needs, things to see, and anything else you can think of.
And yes we know, tour operators and websites may be practical, with ‘click and book’ but they will never replace the service, availability and care of a real person, a passionate local. Fact! With Crazy Canary, say ‘bye-bye’ to holiday hassles and ‘hello’ to the sheer pleasure of chilled traveling
This is who we are:
Adventurer seekers at heart
Passionate explorers at your service
Passionate about adventure, we’ve always loved discovering and meeting new people. We have travelled from France and the UK respectively to many parts of the world, including India, Thailand, the West Indies, Canada, Iceland, Morocco, Jordan, Eastern Europe and many more. By various means: backpacking with locals for a more authentic experience, camper van for more freedom… and now by sailboat which is currently at the marina in Arrecife. Sailboat was an obvious choice for Fab as he grew up in a family of sailors. When we met I fell in love with sailing (and him) and have never looked back. We bought an old sailboat together and are currently doing it up, ready for our next adventure. So we are now here, for you, in search of all the best things to do in the Canaries by sailing the archipelago from island to island, according to the wind.
An active activity advisor… say that three times fast!
When I left home I worked in events and hospitality I put my all into it to offer unforgettable experiences to thousands of people. Running various events and restaurants in the UK until I was burnt out. I left the UK and persued a hobby I had always loved. SCUBA diving. The plan was originally to return to the UK after a little break and a lot of sun, but I was hooked on diving and was offered the chance to become an instructor and work here full time. During Covid, as everything shut down, I went to stay with my mum in the South of France, but after a couple of months I had itchy feet again, so I found the countries I could travel to and still dive, and off I went! First to Corsica, then Cuba and finally St Lucia before returning to work in Gran Canaria at my old dive center, then I met Fabien We realised we had the same ideas about travelling and offering outstanding customer service. Fab had already started selling a few activities he knew well and was sharing his experiences on his blog and the rest, as they say, is history! So now we share our passion for these activities, our love for the Canary Islands . That’s how Crazy Canary was born.
This is what I suggest:
GET IN TOUCH!
You are unique, your holidays should be too!
Will a computer automatically take care of checking the weather for you before booking a jetski trip in Lanzarote? Tell you the must-see places in Gran Canaria to visit according to your reauirements after a dive? Will arrange to recover the jacket that your child forgot on the buggy tour? NO!
And it’s these small but crucial details which make all the difference, that’s Crazy Canary. Throughout your stay in the Canary Islands, I will be available and ready to answer all your queries (by instant message or WhatsApp to reply quickly at any time).
