Whale and Dolphin Watching Tour in Madeira
US$ 58.62
The south coast of Madeira is a popular spot to watch whales and dolphins in their natural environment. This small-group yacht cruise offers a more personalized experience, with a chance to customize the tour to your group’s preferences, stopping to swim or snorkel along the coast, and looking out for bottlenose dolphins, sperm whales, and Bryde's whales.
What to Expect
The meeting point is at On Tales store in Calheta's Marina, 15 minutes before departure time.
Your Captain and the team will give you a warm welcome, where you will have the chance to hear about some safety procedures and tour details. Also, if you have any worries or requests, feel free to expose to the Team accompanying you. The Captain will lead you to the yacht Miranda.
During this tour, you will have the chance to Swim and Snorkel along the coastline and experience the calm, warm and clear water of the south west sea of Madeira Island. Be there and admire its rocky bottom and its marine life. Depending on weather conditions, you can choose the place you want to dive or the village you want to see. On our way back, let us hear about your adventure, enjoy a sun bath and chill out on board Miranda with cold drinks offered by On Tales boat team.
