We had the most amazing trip out to see the sunset. Without a doubt the best views. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Calheta. We will definitely do it again.

No dolphins. No whales. Just fishermen's stories of how they had seen them the day before! No money back offer just 10 % off their restaurant. Do not go. All good services would know if there were dolphins or whales to be seen and would...More

Their own statistics say a 25% chance of seeing something. This should be advertised as a boat trip. Maybe just maybe see wildlife. Funchal boats go to see pods of resident wildlife so a better chance of actually seeing some.

We took the trip out and it was amazing. We saw turtles which was wonderful. Obviously there is no guarantee, but the boat trip itself is excellent. We will be going again for sure. Brilliant 3 hours. We loved it.b
