Dophins and Whales Watching in Madeira, Calheta

Both the Razzin Hell and the Mako are available for private or group charter to go dolphin and whale watching.

You will also have a great chance of seeing many species of dolphins and whales, turtles, flying fish, manta rays and rare sea birds and sometimes monk seals while out on the water. Plus breathtaking coastal scenery with deep ravines and beautiful waterfalls and the lush green vegetation and of course the amazing clear warm and clean azul coloured sea.

We have a very strict policy with the wild life,we do not go directly to the dolphins, but we pass a few hundred meters away from them and allow them to choose if they want to come to the boat or not. 99% of the time they swim directly to play in the bow wave of the boat,this gives a marvelous opportunity to take some unforgettable photos and videos especially when the light conditions are perfect. We often see the mothers with their young which is a real treat!

If the dolphins are feeding we stay well away from them as it takes them hours to round up the bait fish and we don't want to interfere with their natural behavior.

We do not allow you to swim with dolphins as its possible to spread our bacteria to them, and some species could become aggressive, as safety is our top priority we think seeing them from the boat is close enough and better for the dolphins.

Whales must be approached quietly and careful or they will dive down and may not surface for 30mins or more, the well being of these wonderful creatures is our up most priority.
