Full description
Spend two hours snorkeling in the open ocean and encounter dolphins face-to-face in their own environment. Take in the stunning sights of the Madeira coastline as you go. Arrive at our facilities and suit up in your gear before embarking on a boat ride with our guides. Once in the perfect location, jump into the water, and hold onto buoys fixed to a snorkeling rope. Relax and be pulled slowly by the boat at the water’s surface alongside the dolphins. Enjoy a passive encounter with these majestic creatures that does not involve actively swimming with the animals. Our experienced crew will take the animals’ behavior and their eagerness to interact into consideration as well as the physical condition of participants before and during the trip. Enjoy the opportunity to meet these impressive animals underwater. Appreciate a respectful approach towards encountering these creatures and other marine life.

Habe hier genau das gefunden was ich gesucht habe. Unbeschreiblich schön. Es war wunderbar mit den Delfinen zu schnorcheln. Auf die Sicherheit der Teilnehmer wird sehr geachtet. Ich bin sehr dankbar dass mit den Delfinen so respektvoll umgegangen wird. Die Tiere werden zu keiner Zeit bedrängt. Dadurch entstehen unwahrscheinliche Begegnungen, die immer von den Delfinen ausgehen. Riesengroßes Danke an die Crew Paula und Daniel und an den Spotter - hat unwahrscheinlich gute Augen und erspäht die Tiere von Land aus in einer Entfernung von 7-8 oder mehr Seemeilen. Danke Danke Danke
