Reef Fish Watching in Madeira

Reef Fish Watching in Madeira


The only snorkelling tour on the Island dedicated to the several coloured fish species that can be found on the Island’s reef shallows. The right tour if you wish to snorkel Madeira’s clear waters while observing beautiful coloured fish and learning about the sponges, algae, sea urchins, anemone, corals and other marine organisms. We combined three spots on the beautiful São Lourenço Bay to increase your sighting possibilities.

Snorkelling spots away from urban areas and pollution, with clear waters.
Designed to maximize the observation of marine species (Fish, sponges, anemone, algae, etc.).
Beautiful coloured fish like peacock wrasse, Rainbow wrasse, Zebra seabream, Damselfish, Pearly razorfish, ornate wrasse, Mediterranean parrotfish, barred hogfish, among others










Why book this tour:The tour takes place on the coastal waters of the São Lourenço Nature Reserve, far from urban areas. The ocean water in this is area is clear, clean and serene, being sheltered from dominant winds and surely one of the best areas for snorkelling.
