Great experience with a very knowledgeable guide and host. We waited for the monk seal but it clearly didn't like my aftershave and didn't make an appearance. Looking forward to the swimming with dolphins trip tommorow.

We hired a scooter for 20€/day to get there. It was great for exploring along the coast- Canical & Machico, and stopping for photos. Rent-a-scooter is just in downtown Funchal. Helmets and storage box included.
