    All about the Cetacean Observation.

    We invite you for an up-close experience with dolphins and whales in the seas of Madeira. Before setting off on your adventure, we will briefly introduce the dolphins and whales of Madeira. The waters around the island are deep and rich in nutrients and are ideal habitats for various marine mammals – over 20 different whale species observed throughout the year. We have spotters on strategic lookouts on land to help us find cetaceans and boats specialized in wildlife observing, led by marine biologists. These are RIB boats, high-speed boats which can go far to find cetaceans. You can also swim with dolphins*, an unforgettable experience! BOOK NOW!

    * Please note: Since it depends on animals, we cannot guarantee “swimming with dolphins” in advance. The confirmation will be made only on the day after the start of the activity. In the case of conducting it, payment is made directly to the company.
