Just be aware of the accelarating zones that can make a passage between the islands a hell. We had our so far worst sailing from Teneriff to Gran Canaria, eventhough we used all info in the Imray pilot and all tips we got from other sailors.
We anchored a lot on Gran Canaria, nice remote anchorages but no shelter at all for winds from the south quadrant.
Agree with Ocean Hobo La Gomera and San Sebastian is well worth a visit. In the sound between Teneriff an La Gomera, in the mornings before lunch. You can see a lot of resting whales and can come quite close to them.
I don't know but I belive that it can be easier to get the Visa extended in the Canaries then at the mainland. Because they are pretty shure that you have come there because your leaving for CV or Caribbean.
