Amazing ship, a great experience for the whole family. There are a lot of pirate costumes and masks in a box, so you can like a pirate yourself (even though Columbus' ship was not a pirate ship, but for the kids it is so much fun to belvieve it is a pirate ship) . The crew is friendly too. We were so lucky and managed to see the dolphins! And we sailed along the coast to see and amazing cliff with a waterfall.

Great day. Relaxing sail and a nice free wine! Beautiful ship. We saw pilot whales and dolphins but don't go just to see them. There is always a risk they won't be spotted. The ship and the experience are enough without the wildlife.

The trip with the Santa Maria was a great experience. We were even lucky enough to see whales. The crew is very friendly and tries to give the guests a pleasant journey and information about the water world around Madeira.

You felt transported back in time. On the trip we could also see dolphins and a small whale species.

Weather was good, we even saw dolphins! Gladly again
