Superfreundliche Guides, die sich auch die Mühe gemacht haben, mit unserem brüchigem Portugiesisch umzugehen, es ging aber auch hervorragend in (gebuchter) englischer Sprache. Vor dem Start gab es ein kurzes Briefing über die einzelnen Arten, z.B. wurde erklärt, welcher man sich nähern kann und welcher nicht. Wir hatten Riesenglück mit Sichtung von 1 Finnwal, 3 Delphinschulen und 1 fliegenden Fisch (was keinen Einfluss auf die Bewertung hat). Eine Schule ist "abgehauen", man hat sie dann nicht weiter belästigt; die beiden anderen haben uns begleitet, z. T. ganz nah am Boot. Sie wurden nach ca. 20 Min. in Ruhe gelassen, man nimmt wohl auf die Tiere Rücksicht. Am Ende der Tour wurde uns innerhalb der 2 Stunden die "Hotelküste" von Funchal gezeigt, was nun wirklich nichts mit Wal- und Delphinwatching zu tun hat. Deshalb ein Stern Abzug. Bei Touren, auf denen nur wenige/keine Tiere gesichtet werden, geht diese Zeit vielleicht ab (wird dies dann ausgelassen???). Insgesamt empfehlenswert!
