Fantastic three hours. We weren't sure if we would see any wildlife but were treated to a fantastic dolphin display after cruising the Madeiran coastline. The crew were really good & dealt with everything brilliantly.

Had a wonderful morning out. The staff were very attentive and friendly. We saw three species of dolphin and a turtle. Particular time and effort was given to explain the wildlife. Very memorable and well worth the money.
