In Madeira, in addition to watching whales and dolphins, there is also the opportunity to swim with the dolphins in the open sea.
Dolphins are highly intelligent creatures with an incredibly social behavior and very strong empathy. Therefore, they are often used for therapeutic purposes, especially in children.
In Madeira, great importance is attached to the species-appropriate and careful handling of marine mammals. Therefore, there is no active swimming with the animals here, but "snorkeling with dolphins". This means that you are equipped with snorkeling equipment and hold onto a rope that is attached to a boat. This awakens the play instinct of the dolphins and the animals swim and jump around the snorkelers.
"Snorkeling with dolphins" is certainly one of the most beautiful experiences with animals and will remain in your memory forever.
