Full description
Climb aboard a comfortable catamaran for a relaxing trip along Madeira's south coast from the Marina do Funchal. Look for dolphins and whales (and even turtles) playing in the cold waters of the sea.

If the winds are favorable, hoist the sails for a unique and unforgettable sensation. During the summer months, stop to swim below the cliffs of Cabo Girão, one of the highest sea cliffs in the world. A qualified crew will provide detailed information in various languages about the species of cetaceans (dolphins and whales) you see. In the event you don’t spot any whales or dolphins you will be offered a 2nd trip (June to 15 September), with the added bonus that it will be at sunset.

Get historical and technical information from your crew for a truly unique experience.
