We have Speedboat with a SUZUKI 140 horsepower engine, it is in the Marina of Funchal, it is a smaller boat than the boats that normally can be found in Funchal, we take a maximum of 10 people on board and at least 2 people (in winter we take a maximum of 8 people), it is fast and takes us wherever to see dolphins and whales.
Our trip consists on going to Cabo Girão. On the way there, we go a bit further out in to the ocean to find wales and dolphins. We always try and do our best to will find them.
After we seen the animals we go to Calhau da Lapa or Cabo Girão, which is the second highest sea cliff in the world, with a lot of history and a beautiful landscape. If the weather is good, in summer time, we stop there for about 20 minutes, so you can enjoy a swim in the ocean or snorkeling. On our way back we come closer to land enjoying the view and scenery and trying to explain all what you are seeing in the moment.
We take a maximum of ten people so we can have a more personalized experience and explain everything to our passengers.
