Cruise Ship Spotting In Lanzarote

We were contacted by reader David Barwick who lives in Costa Teguise and who runs an AIS Station there which monitors marine traffic and sends the data to Marinetraffic.com

Every vessel over 300 tons must carry a transponder, which means their location, heading and speed can be recorded by stations all over the world. David’s station, which is known as Arrecife 752 BAZZAB can cover a range as much as 500 miles, although more typically it “sees” about 30 miles. There are two other stations in Lanzarote, one in Playa Honda and another in Macher.

It’s a great way to identify the shipping we all see around the coasts here on a daily basis, and can also give you a heads up when another cruise ship is heading into port.  read more »
