I was not expecting much more than a boat trip but...

...instead saw 3 separate pods of fin whales plus a whole load of dolphins. The crew on the boat were great - clearly knew their stuff and were keen to share their knowledge and experience; they seemed genuinely excited when whales were spotted! It was a bit windy when we went out which did result in wet legs as we were sat by the trampoline nets at the front - the odd wave caught us out! It is worth noting that outside seating (with the best view) is deck cushions: if you are considering this trip and have any balance / mobility issues, you have been warned... Plenty of photo opportunities - even if only for a reverse view of the bay and coastline - but don't forget to look at things with your actual eyes (rather than through a camera) and remember that everyone else on the boat is trying to get the 'perfect shot' as well. We did not use the other facilities on the boat (e.g. bar, WC) but they were there for those who wanted / needed them. All in all - a great way to spend 3 hours!

Great trip - free second trip if the wildlife doesn't show!

Despite a great trip and the opportunity to take a dip in the sea at the foot of Cabo Girao, the dolphins/whales were a no show. However, VMT Madeira offers a free second trip if that happens, which was worth the additional expense when compared to some of the slightly cheaper trips available. I took my second trip a few days later in the afternoon and we were treated to a turtle passing by the boat and a pod of dolphins that swam ahead of the boat for a good 10 minutes. Great trip, great staff and would definitely recommend - the insurance of a second trip is definitely worth it.

This trip was amazing. Tour guide was great.

Our guide was amazing. At the end of our tour I discovered my wallet was missing. He did everything to help and took us to police station. After he insisted we join him for lunch. So helpful because in the end we figured it was stolen when we where up on the glass top with large crowds of people. Thanks again for your help.

Amazing scenery and wonderful guides, especially Renato!

First class trip from pick up to drop off. Excellent driving skills, taking us up to the most breathtaking views from the mountains. Loved tasting the Poncha drink, which is lush and made with passion! Excellent day out and great value for money. Renato our driver and guide was amazing! Thank you

Very nice trip to see delphins. I recommend

Really nice trip near to Funchal coast. I was skeptical and I was not waiting to see dolphins, but we really did, plenty of them. The crew was friendly and funny. Gave us a lot of information about dolphins and whales as well as some sightseeing tips for Funchal and surroundings.
