Using specific approach techniques and relying on the dolphin’s amazing intelligence and inherent interest in humans, we now are able to share with YOU open water, in-water dolphin experience. You are connected safely to the boat at all times and in the water right next to the dolphins as they glide from bow to bow- in front of, below, and next to you! The best thing is that this all takes place right here in the crystal clear waters of Madeira!
Madeira’s regulations for swimming with wild dolphins are quite strict in order to preserve the subtle natural balance that these magnificent animals deserve. And we totally agree on that. It is possible to get in the water with 2 species of dolphins, Common Dolphins, and Spotted Dolphins. Due to environmental and behavioral factors, we cannot guarantee that we will always enter in water but our crew will always do everything possible for a successful trip.
The success rate of the trips is 90%. In case swimming is not possible or if we see whales or dolphins we cannot swim with, you will be refunded the difference between the price of the observation trip and the swimming trip, which is 7€ per person.

OUR SIGHTING GUARANTEE
In our Whale watching and Swimming with Dolphins activity, we cannot predict if it will be only dolphins, only whales, or both on a single tour, since we work with wild animals, and their behavior is unpredictable. However, we guarantee to sight at least one dolphin or whale species! If no dolphins and no whales species are sighted during the tour which is extremely rare, the customer will have the possibility of another free tour, or in case of unavailability due to weather conditions, a free trip voucher valid 2 years.
