The island of Madeira is fortunate enough to be situated mid-ocean along the migratory path of numerous spectacular sea creatures. Whales and Dolphins can be frequently spotted.
Some of the whale species to be seen include: Sperm Whale, Fin Whale, Pilot Whale, Sei Whale, Beaked Whale and Humpback Whales...to name a a few. As for dolphins: Bottle Nose Dolphin, Atlantic Spotted Dolphin, Oceanic Dolphin, Common Dolphin, Rissoâs Dolphin, Rough Tooth Dolphin, Striped Dolphin and more!
Madeira is unique to other islands with its deep ocean floor as close as 5 km off shore. Boats do not have to travel far to see these magnificent creatures. A Madeira whale watching tour is a unique and rewarding way to spend the day. Don't forget your camera!
