Reviews

Wonderful experience
Littlekath25, 21-08-2022
It was a wonderful experience! We first got an introduction about the yacht and how they are able to spot the animals. Then the very friendly crew welcomed us on the beautiful yacht. The captain was very talkative and were able to tell us a great deal of stories. We were very lucky to encounter a pod (group of dolphins) and they even had a baby dolphin amongst them! The captain was very careful and respectful in approaching them, we kept a nice distance and weren't too aggressive. Last but not least we were able to take a quick swim. The crew are wonderful en very friendly people, we felt very taken care of the whole trip! And they also have a lot of respect for the wild life, so that was very heartwarming to witness too :)
Do it!

Perfect boat trip

We really enjoyed the boat trip. Very pleasant sailing trip with few tourists. We were well taken care of, drinks, towels and time for swimming and snorkeling at a nice place.
The captain gave us a lot of good information.
We were happy to seeing whales.
Wonderful experience with a great team

The On Tales team is lovely, caring and open-hearted towards their customers. We went on a shared cruise in the morning and saw Blainsville's Beaked Whales which were beautiful. In the end we were snorkeling and saw fishes, crabs and sea urchins in the crystal clear waters.

We only had to bring our swim-suits, everything else was provided (incl. Snorkeling equipment, drinks and towels).

Our Captain Emanuel explained a lot about the whales,the local birds and the characteristics of the volcanic origin of Madeira. Emanuel and his colleague Chiko made fotos which were sent to us on the same day. They turned out great!

We can only recommend the tour for everybody!
Memorable experience

We had to postpone our tour 2 days due to weather conditions and it was completely worth it. Very personal tour with only 4 visitors on the boat. Makes the experience much more intimate and emotional.
Had the chance to see Dolphins and to swim near the coast.
Emanuel was very helpful and shared lots of interesting facts about the island and the wildlife.
Definetely recommend it.
