Whale, Dolphin and Turtles Watching
$52.17
Overview

Whale and Dolphin Watching could be an incredible experience for all, adults and children's. The observation of these magnificent marine mammals in they natural habitat are a moment that stays forever in our memory. The waters in Madeira Island are very rich in cetaceans: marine mammals that live exclusively in an aquatic habitat, like the whales and dolphins. There are 29 species described for Madeira.
In our programmes there are many chances to experience this encounters. Onboard, our experienced and friendly guide will provide good and safe observations and help you with any uncertainty in the identification. There are good identification field guides onboard that you can use. 
We start our trips with only two adults.
We have free windbreaks.

What to Expect

We have Speedboat with a SUZUKI 140 horsepower engine, it is in the Marina of Funchal, it is a smaller boat than the boats that normally can be found in Funchal, we take a maximum of 10 people on board and at least 2 people (in winter we take a maximum of 8 people), it is fast and takes us wherever to see dolphins and whales.

Our trip consists on going to Cabo Girão. On the way there, we go a bit further out in to the ocean to find wales and dolphins. We always try and do our best to will find them.

After we seen the animals we go to Calhau da Lapa or Cabo Girão, which is the second highest sea cliff in the world, with a lot of history and a beautiful landscape. If the weather is good, in summer time, we stop there for about 20 minutes, so you can enjoy a swim in the ocean or snorkeling. On our way back we come closer to land enjoying the view and scenery and trying to explain all what you are seeing in the moment.

We take a maximum of ten people so we can have a more personalized experience and explain everything to our passengers.

Great tour, kind staff, fun experience!

As we arrived in funchal, every company tried to lure us to their boattrips, except for this small startup company. So we went for these people, they explained that a zodiak boat is better for whale/dolphin/turtle watching, as the animals get closer to the boat....More

Oceansee was the most authentic Dolphin and Whale spotting trip in Funchal

We decided to use Oceansee as their boat has a maximum of 10 people and it is a speed boat to be able to act on any sightings from watchouts along the coast. We saw a large pod of Atlantic white spotted dolphins. The dolphins...More

Look out for Oceansee at the marina in Funchal . It is worth booking this jet boat above the other options on offer. They only take up to 10 people, on our trip there were 6 of us. As it is a speed boat they...More
