Overview

Escape the city, and head for the water on this half-day catamaran trip from Funchal. If you’re lucky, you may spot whales, dolphins, and turtles in their natural environment. The tour is great for adults and children alike, and gives you the flexibility to relax on the boat without a strict itinerary of activities. If you’d like to snorkel, you can pack light, as snorkeling equipment rental is included.

What to Expect
Madeira has different species of cetacean throughout the year. Some more common on the warm summer months and others more common on the cooler winter season. So, sightings are possible all year long.
We stop for swimming during the summer and snorkeling equipment is available on board free of charge. Bar service is also available on board.

Great trip

This boat will take you for an approx. 2,5 hour tour. Doesn’t sound exciting? But it should! Not only: + you will see dolphins - from very close, the captain will stay close with them for at least 15 Minutes + you will enjoy a...More
