What People Are Saying About Funchal

fantastic and worthy the money tour, with pro and friendly staff

I've seen many things on Madeira during this holiday, and definitely Dolphin and Whale Watching Tour was the best of them all. Weather was a little breezy and coldish, but it didn't matter, when the boat staff pointed to a group of bottlenose dolphins playing with waves. In a few moments we had a chance to see some whales hunting for fish. Two guys been sitting on mast doing great job finding the animals in the sea. Staff gave me a blanket, as I wasn't prepared for the temperature that dropped much during the cruise. People on the front sits got soaked by the water (still warm in the January) and they immediately been given towels and a poor girl who was having sea sickness also got help at once. Pilot of the boat was very happy to share interesting stories about Madeira and give us some tips and tricks useful later on the rest of holiday stay. Playful group of short-beaked common dolphins on the way back was a nice surprise for everybody and perfect finish for the trip.

An old sailing ship, a parrot with cake and wine - perfect!

This was three hours well spent on an amazing replica ship, with crew going up into the crows nest to release the sails which gave a really good feel for what it must have been like in days gone by. We saw Bottle Nose Dolphins and Common Dolphins and I caught a glimpse of what I thought was a turtle. There was a lot of fun as we all kept our eyes glued to the ocean and waited for someone to call "here on this side" or "over there". The crew had extremely sharp eyes and helped lots for us to take pictures and catch the dolphins in their natural habitat. We stopped for those who wanted to have a dip in the ocean and there were some who did. This was a lovely relaxing way to spend 3 hours after all the sightseeing we had done that week and was such fun and it is truly worth the money. I mustn't forget there was a parrot to add to the authenticity of the whole thing.

Excellent, relaxed, welcoming, unique experience with wonderful staff!

This is an excellent, relaxed, wonderful, unique experience with wonderful staff who make all guests of all ages, nationalities and mobility comfortable. Superb opportunities to take photos and be part of what may have been an explorers cruise with a parrot and small family dog on board, with playful accessories for the kids to become pirates of the seas for the day. Topped off with traditional Bolo de Mel and Madeira Wine complementary along with a bar and catering menu. Much recommended.

A really great expereience, not to be missed.

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.

Fantastic half days entertainment. Good value for money.Excellent

Excellent trip with very friendly and helpful staff. On the trip we saw common and bottle nose dolphins,turtles and flying fish. Towards the end of the day we were given the opportunity to swim in the shadow of Cano Viral Europe's highest cliff. For those not interested in swimming the bar and snack bar catered for all tastes.
