Amazing ship, a great experience for the whole family. There are a lot of pirate costumes and masks in a box, so you can like a pirate yourself (even though Columbus' ship was not a pirate ship, but for the kids it is so much fun to belvieve it is a pirate ship) . The crew is friendly too. We were so lucky and managed to see the dolphins! And we sailed along the coast to see and amazing cliff with a waterfall.

Had a great time kayaking and snorkelling around the beautiful Madeira coastline. Our guide was full of lots of interesting information and made the tour an unforgettable experience. We saw lots of fish close up which was amazing. Would definitely recommend this trip! Thank you so much

Great day. Relaxing sail and a nice free wine! Beautiful ship. We saw pilot whales and dolphins but don't go just to see them. There is always a risk they won't be spotted. The ship and the experience are enough without the wildlife.

The trip with the Santa Maria was a great experience. We were even lucky enough to see whales. The crew is very friendly and tries to give the guests a pleasant journey and information about the water world around Madeira.

You felt transported back in time. On the trip we could also see dolphins and a small whale species.
