Whale & Dolphin Watching – Half Day

During this activity, you will have the opportunity to watch some of the 28 cetacean species that can be found in Madeira island. Whales and dolphins are regularly seen during our half day tours, along with turtles, seabirds and other marine wildlife.

Before the boat trip, our biologists will give you a briefing to explain which cetacean species can be observed, safety measures aboard, how we respect the animals and rules of observation at sea as well as some historical facts.

The staff onboard will warn you if they see anything in the water and give some explanations and details about the specific species that you will meet.

As they are wild animals, each tour is a surprise!

The trip will last about 3 hours before going back to the harbor.
