We strongly recommend trips with Magic Dolphin! Today we took part in one of them and we were amazed! We saw whales and dolphins :) the crew is very nice and they give you useful information about these animals and about the Island. Very nice...More
It would be prudish to blame the team running this trip for our average experience. They’re a professional, experienced bunch who clearly love what they do.
And nature is by its very nature, unpredictable. So we saw nothing on our trip at all - except...More

Thank you for giving us the feed back. This time in a year ocean can be a little wild. In winter times we often offer our guest free of charge sea sickness tablets as not everybody a sea-wordy.
It is a pity you...More
We have been on the Magic Dolphin twice and both times were absolutely great even though the first time we didn't see any dolphins. Yesterday was our second trip & we saw Pilot whales - just brilliant. The crew are very knowledgeable and friendly, it...More
Went on Majic Dolphin Cataraman on 22nd January just for the cruise and not expecting to see any wild life this time of year so to see Pilot Whales, Sperm Whales and some others (sorry cannot remember the name but apparently very unusual to see...More

I am so sorry to hear your experience was so not good.
The sea rules and regulations are well monitored here in Madeira. Weather on the 31st was bad but it was not bad enough to cancel the trips. All the other boats...More
To honest we were not really impressed.
We know it’s a wildlife exploring and they say there’s no guarantee to see the animals the trip is about.
And as feared we didn’t see anything at all, and that’s probably what made the trip a bit...More

Sea Safaris only takes 18 pax so I suggest to book on the trip advisor before to avoid any hick ups. We might be full otherwise.
If you need any more info please do not hesitate to contact me.
