Went out on the Sea Born in the beginning of november. Searched in fain for dolphins and whales but still enjoyed the trips with nice views of Funchal and the coast. The crew is very friendly and open to chat and show things.

Went out on Sea Born in September - pilot whales, bottlenose dolphins and best of all several sperm whales. Then mooring below the second highest sea cliff in the world for a spectacular swim and a leisurely sail back along the coastline. Crew concentrated on their work most of the trip but on the return trip were very chatty and full of humour and fun. Like most Madeirans they love talking to tourists and clearly want to improve their English. While seeing wildlife is not guaranteed - depends whats out there on any one day - its a fab way to spend a few hours.

We went on a 3 hour trip on the Sea Born Catamaran on our recent holiday and can recommend.The crew were excellent , helping everyone on and off the boat.

We saw several dolphins and one whale on our first visit. Enjoyed it so much , we went again on our second week as the weather was perfect , very hot but the slight sea breeze was very welcome .This time we only saw two dolphins but several whales .(6 to 8 all at one time ).We were very surprised and excited .

The catamaran stopped just below Cabo Girao for those who wished to swim in the sea .They provided snorkels and face masks .

Returning to Funchal gives you a different view of Funchal as you sail along the coastline .Fantastic trip with plenty of room onboard to walk about .Highly recommended .

Went out on the catamaran Sea Born trip lasted 3 hours saw loads of dolphins and you get a chance to swim for about 30 minutes near a bay on the return journey.
Maximum passengers on this boat is 50 others cram up to a hundred on the same sixe vessel. Excellent value @ 30 euros

We booked a 3 hour trip with Sea Born. Sea Born has the biggest catamaran and they don't take too many people. Trip was very nice, we saw dolphins and could swim in the sea. Staff is friendly and helpful. Drinks on board are affordable at € 2.00 for a soft drink or a beer.
