What to expect


Madeira’s favourable location allows us to cross paths with a great variety of cetaceans. As the majority of these animals are migratory, their coordinates are always different. It is up to our Spotter on land to locate them with the help of binoculars & inform our crew, allowing a gentle approach & close encounters. Our RIB Boat allows us to act quickly, which not only provides higher chances to see cetaceans but also we have more time to keep on searching for other species. Our goal is to show you as much as possible from what nature has to offer!

An amazing trip out, we saw Fin Whales and a Humpback Whale. The guides were knowledgeable and great at helping us spot the whales from a distance. I would not hesitate to book again!
