What to expect

For the chance to see dolphins, whales and turtles in their natural habitat, look no further than this relaxing half-day cruise from Funchal. You'll sail along the stunning south coast of Madeira admiring the sea views and keeping a lookout for marine animals in the distance.

Madeira's location in the North Atlantic Ocean makes it an ideal place to spot dolphins, whales and turtles, but to have the highest chance you'll need to cruise out into the open seas. Step on board a Turkish-style gulet boat in Funchal then depart for the dramatic south coast. You'll be able to watch the coastline twist and turn with steep cliffs rising from the sea as well the horizon for signs of activity.

We'll head out in search of dolphins, whales and turtles – all of which are familiar sights in the seas around Madeira all year round. There's also a stop for swimming and cooling off before returning to Funchal marina where the cruise ends.
