The catamaran is comfy, clean and fast. The crew are friendly and knowledgeable and made sure we knew what we were looking at, We saw a sperm whale pod of 5 whales - blowing, basking, diving and turning; pods of two different dolphins Bottle Nosed and Atlantic Spotted leaping, diving, swimming around and under the catamaran. Best place is on the edge of the netting at the front. It was truly a privilege to see these creatures up close and totally in their environment. The whole crowd went utterly silent when we saw them.

They sometimes allow swimming from the catamaran but there was not time to see the above and return via the Cabo Girão cliff. I would rather have missed the cliff and swum to be honest but the whole trip was fantastic.

A really enjoyable trip on a Catamaran. Not too over-crowded and we saw Pilot wales. Very organised and polite staff. We left the harbour at 10:15 and returned for 1:30pm. Highly recommended trip.

We all loved this trip! Catamaran cruise was amazing, loved chilling out on the nets. Saw some bottle nose dolphins and pilot whales. Then cruised back to the bay underneath the lookout with the glass floor for a swim. My family loved jumping off the boat into the sea. Bar on board great for snacks too. Crew really professional too. Could have spent a whole day doing this 😊

Nice boat trip with friendly personal and beautiful wiew of the island. We saw some dolphins which was nice. The boat needs much wind to sail, but we did some sailing a little bit.

We needed a craft that was easy to board... it was.
The crew were great.
We didn't see any dolphins or whales - however, wildlife can be unpredictable.
Stopped off to allow those who wanted to swim... they appeared to love it.
