Overview

Madeira is one of Europe’s best whale and dolphin watching destinations. Sperm whales and Common Bottlenose dolphins are resident in the waters around the island and the temperate seas mean our crews head out to sea all year around.

We’ve included four whale and dolphin watching trips (and because we specialise in personalised trips, you can always add more) – and there’s free time on dryland if you’d like to explore Madeira’s magnificent landscapes with our resident guides.

Your home for the week is the seafront Hotel Quinta da Penha da Franca – it’s just a short walk to the marina, and Funchal’s best restaurants and café bars are close by.
