    Stop At: Oceansee, Marina do Funchal, Funchal, Madeira 9000-055 Portugal

    On the 2h trip During the first hour we ride into the ocean to find some dolphins and whales. In our program, there are many chances to experience the encounters with several species during the same trip, as we have a lookout on the land that tell us where the animals are and guide us to them. After you have the opportunity to enjoy views of the West coast of Funchal. You will be able to see Cabo Girão(582m) – The second highest sea cliff in the world and is the highest in Europe. During the summer we take a 20 min stop for a swim next to Fajãs do Cabo Girão. On the way back we will sail closer to land in order to enjoy the view while soaking in interesting information from our biologist.

    Duration: 2 hours
