Yes, there is. However, information on internet is quite poor, therefore I describe my own experiences here. On 21 December 2012, I travelled from Gran Canaria airport via Las Palmas, Agaete, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Los Cristianos to Santa Cruz de La Palma. The ferry company Fred Olsen operates many ferry-bus connections. I will describe my experiences ...

In response to your question there are very few companies worldwide who can actually provide a broadbased service for wheelchair users such as you seem to be seeking. The majority of specialist tour providers are based in the USA (5 agencies), Canada (2 agencies), UK (1 agency and around 4 holiday/vacation based tour operators), Spain (my company Disabled ...

Well, I was able to beat @gerrit's connection, by taking a ferry run by Naviera Armas. As of February 4th 2013, total price is 23 EUR (compared to 59 EUR for bus plus Fred Olsen): 9 EUR: Ticket for Bus 111 from Tenerife South airport to Santa Cruz Intercambiador, bought inside the bus. The bus took perhaps an hour, I didn't measure time. nothing: Walking ...

You can take the ferry with Fred Olsen. There should be buses from Tenerife South Airport to Santa Cruz de Tenerife. From the main bus station, there are then dedicated buses to the ferry terminal, from where there are several ferries per day to Gran Canaria. The bus from the intercambiador (bus station) to the ferry terminal (a short ride) is included in ...

Air temperature Most of the islands are pretty similar in climate, but Wikipedia has a great chart for temperatures of Gran Canaria and Tenerife, indicating that the average high in February is around 21 degrees Celsius, the mean temperature for the day is 18 deg, and the average low is 15 deg. You can also expect 1 in 8-10 days to have rain, on average. ...

I highly recommend visiting El Teide, the large volcano at the centre of Tenerife. It attracts visitors, but as it's quite remote, only the more adventurous bother to go there. The Teide National Park, which surrounds the volcano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The cable car ride up the volcano is definitely worth a look, and the last 500 feet of walking to ...

I just found out that I will be able to access the peak! By booking a night at the Altavista refuge, they let us climb to the peak in the early morning (only)! Access to the crater It is advisable to leave the refuge at about 6 am, to reach the Teide crater before dawn. When you stay overnight at Altavista del Teide Refuge, you are entitled ...

One option appears to be a shuttle, if you would consider that. It runs from the airport to Agaete, and appears to take 1 hour and 20 minutes. At the very least, that should help give you an idea of the time it takes.

With regards to Tenerife: http://therealtenerife.com/ This website is devoted to the parts of Tenerife that most websites gloss over. Most people’s holidays to Tenerife tend to involve heading to the sunny, purpose built resorts of the south. However much of the rest of Tenerife is where the Canarios live, work and play; a place where traditions and ...

Wheelmap.org can be very useful for you. It contains POIs with information wheter there are accessible for wheelchair. Here you have Canary Islands on Wheelmap (zoom in to see specific location with POIs). The biggest disadvantage of this map is that still majority of POIs are not described.

About 18 degrees Celsius, give or take: http://www.bigblueplanet.com/watersearch.jsp?Longitude=0&Latitude=0&Month=2&WaterDepth=Surface&Zoom=2 And that website seriously hurts my eyes. Somewhat more readable, but not giving historical details: http://www.sea-temperature.com/water/lanzarote/165
