Amazing tour with whales and dolphins

It was an amazing experience! We saw dolphins, whales and a turtle. We had an goos guide who gives us much information. The way h2o is respecting the animals is amazing. You know that they take care about the healthy conditions. When I visit Madeira again, I will come back!!
Great experience

We were lucky to find a whole pod of playful dolphins and the chance to swim with wild dolphins whilst not interfering with their natural habitat was awesome
No doubts, we would do it again!

Unique experience, definitely worth joining on this beautiful island!
The boat trip is fun and we loved the crew since they gave a lot of interesting information. We were lucky to see 5 species from dolphins, pilot whales, a bryde whale and a cuvier whale.
So, don’t wait, book and fingers crossed that some beauties will cross your path

Amazing experience. Despite the island spotters not being able to locate whales or dolphin before we set sail. The boat set out on the proviso that we would do 30 mins if we saw nothing we would come back in and a refund would be given. Luckily for us after about 25 minutes out we saw a Cuvier's Beaked Whale... amazing and the crew described it as a bit of a Unicorn in terms of it being a very shy species. It only breached a couple of times but wonderful to see. As we turned to make our way back along the coast news came in of a possible sighting of something else. We didn't know what until we pulled up alongside some other boats and after a few minutes of patience we saw a mother and baby dolphin absolutely gorgeous. We followed them along their journey for a little while. Then headed back to shore. I won't spoil the little surprise on the way back but let's just say it was great fun! Book it, you won't be disappointed....but remember these animals are wild and the crew cannot predict sightings. Don't let that stop you though. We loved it!
The best thing we did on the island

This was an incredible tour. Only 12 people on the boat in total with two guides (Lino and Magno who were incredible captains/guides) ! We saw two big dolphin pods, received good information, and saw them from very close up! It was the highlight of the trip to Madeira.
