Dolphin and Whale Watching
We have Speedboat with a SUZUKI 140 horsepower engine, it is in the Marina of Funchal, it is a smaller boat than the boats that normally can be found in Funchal, we take a maximum of 10 people on board and at least 2 people (in winter we take a maximum of 8 people), it is fast and takes us wherever it takes to see dolphins and whales.
Our trip consists on going to Cabo Girão. On the way there, we go a bit further out in to the ocean to find whales and dolphins.
After we seen the animals we go to Calhau da Lapa or Cabo Girão, which is the second highest sea cliff in the world, with a lot of history and a beautiful landscape. If the weather is good, in summer time, we stop there for about 20 minutes, so you can enjoy a swim in the ocean or snorkeling. On our way back we come closer to land enjoying the view and scenery and trying to explain all what you are seeing in the moment.
We take a maximum of ten people so we can have a more personalized experience and explain everything to our passengers.
As we mentioned before, we also make personalized trips depending on the group's wishes. For example, we take people to Câmara de Lobos, we also do the service of getting people to lunch at Fajã dos Padres. We have also made only one-hour trips at the request of customers.
Essentially, we cherish respect for customers, co-workers as well as for all marine species sighted. The comfort and safety of our passengers are our priority. What we aspire to is that they end up traveling satisfied and have memories for life.

1 - 08:50 às 10:50*
2 - 11:00 às 13:00
