Madeira Catamaran | Whale & Dolphin Watching

Our company has been operating for the last ten years, taking clients out to sea to watch dolphins and whales in their natural habitat. Having two catamarans "Sea Pleasure" that has a total capacity of 70 passengers and “Sea The Best” that takes up to 100 passengers, we normally go along the Southwest coast of Madeira looking for dolphins and whales, after that we take route to “Cabo Girão” the second-highest sea cliff in the world,  where we stop for a swim (if the weather permits it), returning to the harbor by sail (again if the wind permits it). If on your trip with us, there are no sightings of cetaceans (neither dolphins nor whales), we offer you a second trip entirely free.
