With a beautiful and panoramic view over Funchal, Câmara de Lobos, and Deserted Islands, we start our tour at Pico dos Barcelos.

At our last stop, Ribeira Primeira Park, a sustainable project in the heart of the forest, you may visit the trout farm and enjoy a natural tea or Portuguese coffee (not included) at the Tea House, overlooking the park and the magical forest. On our way back to Funchal, we feel and see the real Madeira with many breathtaking views over the traditional terraces of the local farmers and amazing viewpoints.

After the Jeep tour, you are dropped off at Funchal’s Harbor to start the dolphin watching trip. Come on board the catamaran for a relaxing trip along the south coast of Madeira. The boat trip takes 3 hours, with strong possibilities of seeing dolphins in their natural habitat. During the trip, the crew gives you detailed information about the cetacean species that you are able to see. In the summer months, there is the possibility of swimming below the Cabo Girao cliff. In case you don’t see any cetaceans, we offer a second boat trip. This trip ends in Funchal’s Harbor.
