What you'll do

We offer a luxury cruise of 3h on our power catamaran for Whale and Dolphin watching. We come across Dolphins or Whales in 98% of our trips and if we don't, we will offer you a second trip for free. We offer more than just a tourist attraction as our team of Marine Biologists are involved in scientific studies keeping reports of the behavior, interaction, sightings and location of each species with the wellbeing and protection of cetaceans as a priority. A glass of champagne will be offered upon arrival, then you can enjoy our open bar with cocktails, local wines, beers, juices, soda, coffee and top quality local snacks, fruits, biscuits and ice cream. We begin at the Marina of Funchal, then we sail in search of dolphins and whales, before heading to Cabo Girão (586m) the second highest sea cliff in the world and highest in Europe, where we will stop for 20min and you can enjoy a swim in the crystal clear waters or simply admire the stunning view. For our return we will sail along the amazing coastline in the direction of the Marina.

Where you'll be

The meeting point is at the marina of Funchal, 20 min before the trip and then we go straight to the Ocean in search of Dolphins and Whales. We have a lookout on land to quickly spot where the Dolphins and Whales are located, this way we have the possibility of seeing several species in a single trip.
