Reviews

Absolutely brilliant

Absolutely brilliant. We were on a boat with 14 other people which was a nice number. We didn’t actually see any dolphins or whales but that didn’t seem to matter. The crew were fantastic, friendly helpful, knowledgeable and tried their best to see the wildlife. We were given drinks when ever we wanted it, some nice snacks, and had a really nice time snorkelling. Because we didn’t see any wildlife we were given a voucher to return for us or anyone we gifted it to free of Charge. We were sent some nice pictures a few days later on mail. The trip was extremely relaxing, great fun and fantastic value for money. I would highly recommend it and will defiantly go on it again when I return to Madeira.
Great experience

Luxury tour on the see looking for Dolphins and Whales. We were lucky enough to see Dolphins! Great experience and wonderful staff!
Wonderful experience with VIPDolphins!

There are loads of operators offering boat trips in Madeira. VIPDolphins were recommended to us before we arrived in Madeira, and we were so glad we booked with them when we saw what other operators are offering.
The catamaran is AMAZING! Supremely luxurious and comfortable and plenty of space. They only take a maximum of 17 guests and 3 crew. When you look at how other operators cram up to 100 guests on their boats, believe you me you can see the difference straight away.
Yes, VIPDolphins may be a bit more expensive, but you need to compare what you get for your money. As well as space and luxury, you get free drinks and snacks throughout the trip (wine, beer, soft drinks, tea coffee etc), free masks and snorkels (though we brought our own), free towels and even a hand held shower to wash off the salt water. There's inside toilets and even a couple of beds!
Once out at sea, we were lucky to have a small pod of dolphins playing around the boat for quite a long time. The Captain was extremely responsible in not harrassing them in any way, and indeed letting them come to us rather than chasing them around. To be fair, all the operators we saw, seemed to behave in a responsible manner in respect of their interactions with marine life, which was great to see. We then had time for a swim and snorkel underneath Cabo Girao - the highest sea cliff in Europe, and second highest in the world - before a relaxing sail back to Funchal.
All in all, a wonderful way to spend a few hours, and definitely the highlight of our holiday. VIPDolphins are very highly recommended indeed.
Sensitive and informative trip to see dolphins and other marine life. The coastal scenery was a bonus.

There were four of us and another 12 passengers, making it an intimate group. This meant we had personal interaction with the crew and other passengers. All the crew were fantastic, knowledgeable and extremely attentive. A wonderful trip and, definitely worth the extra cost compared with the alternative trips. We would all recommend this company. The bonus was seeing a pod of dolphins and flying fish. A great three hours.
Perfect!

Simply brilliant. Great boat. Great crew. Limited numbers. Unlimited drinks and snacks. We saw bottle nose dolphins, swam in the sea and cruised back along the coast, under the high sea cliffs. If I had more time, I would have done it again.
