What to expect

Madeira has long been heralded as a top place to see whales and dolphins in the wild, and this 2.5-hour boat trip takes you to do just that. You'll be aboard the ‘Ribeira Brava', a lovingly restored wooden fishing boat, while gazing out at the ocean for signs of activity.

With a maximum of 16 guests on board, you'll not need to jostle for space to look out for any whales and dolphins that may cross our path during the cruise. Enjoy cruising aboard the ‘Ribeira Brava', a traditional fishing boat, which is even equipped with an original sail, as your captain and crew take you to well-known sighting hotspots.

There's a high chance of spotting something, so you'll need to keep your eyes peeled throughout the trip. But with an on-board guide, you'll not miss a trick. After a couple of hours at sea, you'll then sail back to Calheta Marina.
