You won’t want to miss out on the unique opportunity to witness the awe-inspiring marine life of Madeira through our dolphin and whale watching experience. Our crew is committed to a respectful approach to marine wildlife. During our journey, we’ll take you to the stunning sea cliff of Cabo Girão, where you can take a break for swimming and snorkelling. On our way back to Funchal Marina, you can kick back and relax while enjoying the stunning coastline views with a delicious drink from our bar (not included). This activity is a must-do for anyone who wants to explore the natural wonders of Madeira. Don’t hesitate to BOOK NOW and embark on an unforgettable adventure!


    Our Combo Sea and Funchal City Tour package is the perfect way to experience the best of Madeira in a single day. You’ll start by heading out on a 3-hour catamaran trip to see whales and dolphins up close, as described above. Then, in the afternoon, you can explore Funchal and Câmara de Lobos aboard our hop-on hop-off Yellow Bus tours. With a 48-hour bus turistico pass, you’ll have plenty of time to take in all the sights at your own pace and get off at particular sites of interest.

    The tour includes a visit to the Bordal Embroideries Factory, where you can watch the artisans at work and learn about the history and tradition of Madeiran embroidery. You will also have the opportunity to visit the Old Blandy’s Wine Lodge for a free Madeira wine tasting.
