We booked the three-hour catamaran tour (10:30 p.m. - 1:30 a.m.) on New Year's Eve and were very enthusiastic! Contrary to our fears, the ship was not "overcrowded" and there was enough space, even if the seats on the open upper deck were of course limited. There was also a bar on the lower deck for dancing. There was a cold buffet with tapas and cheese, both of which were added. The included bar gave everything from our point of view, including alcoholic & mixed drinks in addition to soft drinks & water. The view of the Funchal bay was magnificent and the fireworks were indescribable in the neighborhood of the large cruise ships! Overall, our expectations were exceeded and the EUR 120 per person was very reasonable for us. We hope that it was not our last stay in Funchal on New Years Eve. We can fully recommend the catamaran tour!

Great tour! I can only recommend it, only the pier is far away and for older slower people the pace is definitely too fast to follow. And if it is there half an hour earlier, preferably 15 minutes earlier, we started the group 10 minutes earlier.

The idea of watching the really great fireworks from the water is great. However, 2.5 hours was way too long and in my opinion the boat was way too far out. 1.5 hours maximum, a shorter distance and a champagne toast would have been perfectly sufficient. It was also a pity that the music was not switched off during the fireworks. Unfortunately, the horns of the ships could not be heard.
