What People Are Saying About Funchal
After an introductory talk on what to expect on the trip we headed off to the boat - a 12 seater RIB and headed off into the Atlantic. The trip out on this powerful craft was very exhilarating but things got really interesting when we ran into a pod of sperm whales complete with young calves. We stayed around for a good while and watched while they blew and dived and splashed their tails. A truly magnificent site. On the return trip we found some dolphins which swam along side the boat and jumped out of the water. It was a truly memorable experience. Five stars.
A very pleasant trip, unusual for the kind of boat we used. We had the chance to see both dolphins and whales, and our guide made sure that we didn't just enjoy what we were seeing, she also gave us a lot of interesting information about the animals we saw.
