Best trip in Madeira. Dolphin and whale watching, swimming in the ocean and tasting of excellent Madeiran wine. On the ship was a great guide Vitor, who has an overview and useful tips about the whole Madeira. Perfectos and fantastico! Thanks for the experience - I highly recommend. Mysir and Kacirajda

I had an amazing time, I was lucky enough to be the only booking so I had a private yacht tour and snorkelling! The doplhins are wild so that day we were unlucky and I was invited to try again. Next time they came and played around the boat there must have been 50 or more I couldn't believe my eyes!

The ship's crew were very kind and informative. They always took care that everyone in the boat would be happy. But we didn't have luck to see dolphins and wales but we still had very good time with very nice people. I recommend it to everyone!
