An eventful day at sea

★★★★★ Reviewed by Eva on 2019-07-05
We had an eventful day at sea with the VMT catamaran. I don’t think the boat was absolutely full, but we were quite a number of people doing the tour that day, but we still had plenty of room on board. We saw lots of dolphins swimming around the boat. A fantastic experience. We also got to see a few turtles. The crew seemed very knowledgeable. I can absolutely recomend it.

Dolphin watching

★★★★★ Reviewed by Marios on 2019-07-05
Got to see 3 difference types of dolphins and kids and teenagers loved it. Highly recommended. Kids would have liked to have seen some whales but always more difficult to locate

A great trip

Super fun and Very Professional

★★★★★ Reviewed by Kelly on 2019-06-19
Really enjoyed not only the catamaran trip itself, the water was beautiful and the boat itself super nice, but especially the staff. Everyone was extremely welcoming and as an added plus they talked a lot about the actions they take to conserve the oceans surrounding Madeira. We got to see Dolphins and Turtles and the entire time I felt the respect they had for these animals and really enjoyed the way the tour was done. Can't wait to come back and do it again!
