It was amazing - some tours are very basic however this tour is fantastic and it’s seemed we were swimming with 50 dolphins although we were on the boat. Everyone spoke perfect English and was a joy to be with and share the experience- if you are coming to Madeira - book this !
Childhood dream came true!
Thanks! I don‘t know what to say… the whol team is just amazing, friandly and so helpfull. They made everything so we could see the dolphins and it worked out. I‘ll always remeber that day. Thanks to the team for that unforgettable trip!
Great tour with lovely crew
This was our second time doing a tour with OnTales and had a great time again! The entire crew is super friendly and the tour is very comfortable. We saw beautiful dolphins and were happy to learn more about the island from Emanuel. Definitely recommend!
Really nice people, looked after us well would recommend.
Was great to stop in the middle of the ocean and swim with the kids also.
Our 1st trip with On Tales - Amazing!
The minute I booked, Mayung got in contact with me to discuss the trip and my birthday. We popped in a few days before to meet some of the team and they are all lovely.
The tour itself was fantastic! Even though we didn’t see any dolphins on this trip, being on the boat and learning about the island was an experience in itself. Emanuel is an amazing boat trip driver with so much information. He realised I had a disability and was very accommodating and helpful.. he even helped me get over my fear of swimming in the sea by giving me a woggle to jump in with! He and his team member took our photos for us as well - they came out amazing and our perfect memories captured.
