This three-hour jaunt takes you out into the Atlantic Ocean, and follows the Madeiran coastline in search of whales, dolphins and porpoises. Jump aboard a high speed boat at Funchal Marina – you’ll be joined by a marine biologist who will answer any questions, and point you in the right direction for spotting sea creatures. Keep your eyes peeled for short-finned pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins and common dolphins that are known for showing off by jumping out of the water. You might even be lucky enough to spot Risso’s dolphins, beaked whales and killer whales that occasionally visit the seas of Madeira, before heading back to the ship.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity.
