Swim with dolphins Funchal


Come have this amazing experience with dolphins in Funchal

Ponta de São Lourenço







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 the Natural reserve of Funchal – Madeira!

Gearing up
There are a few pieces of gear you need for swimming with the dolphins. Do not worry as we will give you all you need at no extra cost: – Mask and snorkel – Wetsuit

Boat trip
The dock is just a 10-second walk from our centre!
Based on the information received by our lookout on land, we will be heading to the area where the dolphins were spotted.

Once with the dolphins, the crew will evaluate the opportunity of swimming with that particular group. Should the group turn out not to be suitable (e.g. showing boat avoidance) we will find another one. If the Dolphins are OK, we will swim with them 4 people at a time.
