Venture off the southern coast of Madeira Island on a rigid inflatable boat to witness the migratory patterns of orcas and humpback whales. Low-profile boats enable closer views and easy access for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to swim with bottlenose dolphins that also inhabit the region.

Meet your tour guide inside the Marina shopping center on Avenida Arriaga, next to the Madeira Film Experience. From here, your guide fits you with a life jacket and conducts a brief safety overview before leading you to the nearby dock to board the vessel. The rigid inflatable boats are among the safest seafaring crafts and are often used for search and rescue missions.

As the boat heads out to sea, be sure to look back toward the coastline and admire the island's southern slopes draped with Portuguese colonial villas. Skippers keep daily records on whale and dolphin sightings to ensure you have the best chance to see these cetaceans, while an accompanying marine biologist provides insight on the local marine ecosystem along with current conservation efforts. Don't forget to bring your camera to record memories of these magnificent mammals in their natural environment.

If you're lucky, get a chance to swim and have fun with the cute bottlenose dolphins in their natural habitat. Pet and play with them as you marvel these creatures in action, revealing their latent playfulness. After a couple hours out at sea, the boat makes a return trip to the same dock in south Madeira Island to conclude the tour.
