Discover the abundant marine life near Madeira on this fast-paced dolphin and whale watching tour. You won’t have to worry about wasting time traveling, as you’ll whizz through the water on a speedboat, and cover large distances. Look out for dolphins and whales, while enjoying guide commentary.

You can enjoy watching them close up in their natural environment. Sighting is guaranteed if you don't see any sea life you will be offered another trip completely free of charge.

With its shallow draft letting you explore almost anywhere, bringing you closer to the caves, beaches, and the beautiful crystalline waters. In the summer months, we will stop in front of Cabo, Girao where you can have a dip into crystal clear waters  and do some snorkeling.  Snorkelling equipment is provided for free of charge!  Girao. Cabo Girao is the world second highest sea cliff rising above 580 meters. Taking a maximum of 18 passengers makes the trip exciting, enjoyable and a bonding friendly atmosphere.

It will all be over far too soon, the feeling of not wanting it to end, you're left with a rush, a huge smile and priceless memories with us. An experience that you will never forget.

Amazing trip despite the white noise aboard the boat by the UK.

Great receptionist, host, crew members, informative, respectful to the 10mins rule per pod, helpful!! Saw bottlenose dolphins and short pilot whales. Closeness from the boat compensated not snorkeling with the animals. 👌😁😁😁😁
