Dolphin & Whale Watching, Funchal

4.6
#3 of 19 in Wildlife in Funchal
Dolphin / Whale Watching Wildlife Area
Cruise alongside one of the world's tallest seaside cliffs and spot dolphins and whales while comfortably seated on the deck of a stylish catamaran. Before embarking from Funchal, the crew's marine biologist will brief you about the species of sea mammals you might encounter along the way--the experienced captain will then navigate the boat to the locations where they are most often seen. Weather permitting, you can take a dip in the sea or try your hand at sailing. Snacks and drinks or lunch are often included in the offer, depending on the duration of the trip (2.5 to 3.5 hours).

Luxury hotels touting outdoor pools, spas, exclusive restaurants, and other amenities certainly dazzle with their locations along the coast.
