Snorkeling with dolphins

Dolphins are among the smartest animals. Experiencing them in their natural surroundings is certainly one of the most beautiful and unforgettable experiences. A magical experience.

The protection of animals is the top priority on these tours. It is therefore not allowed to actively swim to the animals and the dolphins must not be touched either. However, driven by their interest and playfulness, the dolphins will swim around you and often come very close to you.

These tours are offered in Calheta or Funchal..

A variety of different dolphin species, such as common dolphins, Atlantic spotted dolphins and bottlenose dolphins, roam the coast of Madeira. Not all species tolerate people in the water. But most of them are very interested in swimmers and involve them in their game.

When swimming or snorkeling with dolphins, a speedboat takes you to the animals. The swimmers then go into the water and hold on to a rope attached to the boat. The slight movement of the boat encourages the dolphins to play and swim around the snorkelers in the water.

Diving with glasses and snorkels should be familiar.
