Very friendly crew & enjoyable trip. Sadly saw no dolphins but luckily had a good sighting of a Bryde Whale which we watched for about 10 minutes. Obviously you are not guaranteed to see any animals as they are wild & go where they want. We went on a Friday (apparently quieter than other days & just over 50 people on board but didn’t seem at all crowded). Very enjoyable afternoon

It took a bit of time to see something but we were lucky to see a group of whales :) The staff was very nice and on the way back we had some time to swim in the sea. I was just disappointed that the time to swim was short and they didn't offer any snorkeling equipment as advertised. Apart from that, I really recomend this activity to whoever comes to Madeira.

They make an effort that you see animals. Despite the large boat, it was not overcrowded. You see that you can see the animals - it was a sea turtle and a whale cow with her calf. Totally idyllic. If you swim a long time but then want to book another tour. Rather watch animals.
