We booked this hoping the water would not be too cold in January. But we wore wet suits so the water temperature was no problem. Because the wind came from the south we needed to go to the north side of Madeira for calmer water. By speedboat so that was fun! We saw beautiful fish but you had to be in the right spot to see them. The only thing that was not great was that where we stopped to snorkle it was difficult to find a place to rest and fix equipment if needed, as there were waves, rough stones and the boat was not really close. The crew kind of assumed that we were ok and did not offer so much support. I have snorkeled a couple of times before. If it had been my first time it would not have worked for me.

Incredibly great and nice staff. The snorkeling spot is beautiful. We even saw one of the rare monk seals. I can only recommend it!
