Meeting point
Marina do Funchal, you'll find the map in the attached pictures. We'll be glad to see you for the check-in not less than 30 minutes to start.
From the beaches to the outcrops and from the sea to the mountains.
We churn up the ocean in our search for the right coordinates and there they are! Dolphins! Playful, communicative, energetic! Although it seems they are posing for photos, they are actually living in their own enchanted world. Whales who may or may not give off embarrassing odours, decide if they will honour us with a visit. Adding to this 3-hour memorable taste of wildlife, we sometimes have the opportunity of spotting turtles and sea birds.
When the climate is inviting, we stop for a swim in the ocean below Cabo Girão, and when there are favourable winds, we turn off the engines and hoist the sails, which means less pollution and more relaxation. A 3-hour trip that is worth doing at least once in a lifetime by both locals and visitors. Reserve your place and bring your loved ones along!
Additional information:
The pier and the way to the catamaran are accessible for wheelchair users. The catamaran has adapted WC for wheelchair users.
Pay your attention - the entrance to the catamaran has 3 sills with rounded edges, wide enough for the big wheels of an active wheelchair.
If you have an electric wheelchair, then it's better to order a taxi transfer, the staff will help you get on board using a portable ramp.
The accessible catamaran is the biggest one. It is called Sea Nature.
