Full description
Spend two hours 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, enter 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.

Found exactly what I was looking for here. Indescribably beautiful. It was wonderful to snorkel with the dolphins. Great attention is paid to the safety of the participants. I am very grateful that the dolphins are treated so respectfully. The animals are not harassed at any time. This creates unlikely encounters that always come from the dolphins. Huge thanks to the crew Paula and Daniel and to the spotter - he has incredibly good eyesight and can spot the animals from land at a distance of 7-8 nautical miles or more. Thank you thank you thank you
