The tour was really great and well organized. We had several dolphin sightings. The amenities on board were good and the bartender made the best Poncha which is the local Madiera drink -- highly recommended! Having a photographer on board was a great touch.

Was a good and relaxing trip on the ocean. You get to see the whole Island from the water and get some great photo opportunities. We were lucky and got to see some dolphins and whales but honestly you see the animals from quiet a distance as the boats are not allowed to approach the animals. You barely get to see their dorsal fins. Overall it makes for a nice trip. Enjoy!!!!!

Amazing. Even though we only see a pod of dolphins, this was the highlight of my holiday. The crew tried hard to find them and eventually they succeeded. Thank you so much to the crew.

This tour was really good and I would highly recommend it. We saw two different species of dolphin and they came very close to the catamaran. There was lots of space on board and a good selection of drinks which were reasonably priced. We had a brief stop for swimming and snorkelling too:)

The Catamaran is a good stable craft with an upper deck. The crew were very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw 2 groups of dolphins staying long enough for taking good pictures but being sensitive to not disturbing them for too long. A great experience and although sightings cannot be guaranteed we had good success.

Well organised and well executed trip. Cooler temperatures than I expected was Dec - fortunately I don't mind being cold but if I'd had one more layer than I expected I would have put it on!

I would recommend this trip. Although the Catamaran was quite large and there were a lot of people on the trip, we got to see Dolphins and a Sea Turtle. There is a bar and toilets on board and we also got to stop off for a swim.

Great tour. We didn't see any whales, but two different kind of dolphins. And once we have spotted the dolphins the dedication ceased to look for whales, unfortunately.

Great trip, saw three different species of dolphins that all came up close to our boat and showed off. Good informative guides.

This is a nice option for those who have already explored Funchal on foot and want something different. Our catamaran was a large double-decker boat with plenty of seating and a lower-deck netted area for those wishing to be closer to the water and spray. We traveled by motor and not by sail. The catamaran wasn't full, but there were more people than I expected. There were guides on each level, but they were mostly dolphin-watching and didn't interact with us much. We did find two groups of different varieties of dolphin and lingered about as long as the dolphins wanted to interact with us. The first part of the trip was mainly to find the sealife, and the return trip hugged the coastline, where we learned about the local beaches, terrace farming, and economy via an English-speaking guide over an intercom. This cruise company is very eco-conscious and told us what they do particularly to respect the sealife and environment.

had a very nice trip - the crew were helpful and informative and we saw seven whales in one pod - but only a solitary dolphin which was a bit of a disappointment. But overall a good experience - thanks
