The warm Atlantic waters off Madeira's south coast are teeming with wild whales and dolphins. See these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat from a speedy semi-rigid inflatable boat, on this award-winning Madeira dolphin and whale-watching tour.
Head to the Rota dos Cetaceos – ‘Cetacean Route' – base near the Funchal marina, where you'll receive expert information from the marine biologist team about the species that you'll likely be observing at sea – including bottlenose dolphins, pilot and sperm whales, and stately sea turtles.
Other team members are positioned at elevated look-out posts along the coast, so they will radio in the location of dolphin and whale pods. Armed with their location, you'll be whisked off in small, lightning-quick inflatable boats, where the expert drivers will bring you really close to the dolphins and whales without disturbing them – and your on-board marine biologist will be happy to answer your questions about the wildlife on display.
