What You'll Do
  • Spend a day in the company of seabirds, dolphins, whales, turtles and countless more beautiful animals
  • Take advantage of touring in a small group of no more than 12 people
  • Take in the amazing views of Madeira from the sea
Hop aboard a fast boat and cruise along the coast of Madeira in search of seabirds, dolphins, and whales. Seek out turtles and take the chance to swim with dolphins as you ride around the eastern part of Madeira Island.
What to Expect
The 12-seat RHIB (Rigid-hulled Inflatable Boat) departs from Machico harbor, looking for any frenzy of dolphins, whales and seabirds. The landscape here is a nature reserve and, despite looking arid, it can tell you much about Madeira's history and evolution. Whenever you find cetaceans the group will try to get closer but without disturbing the animals.

In the summer, you might get a chance to swim with dolphins! Between March and September several species of cetaceans are seen, such as Common, Spotted, Botlenose and Striped Dolphins or Whales such as Sperm whale, Short-finned Pilot whale or Bryde's whale. Much more common during this season are seabirds as Cory's and Manx shearwaters and Bulwer's petrels. Between October and February you will see different species of animals.

This is a unique experience that you should not miss!
