What people are saying about Funchal

Great ship, very cool guide; If you wanted, she explained everything in detail. The ship goes up to the cliffs and the view is amazing! The weather was very pleasant, as it was slightly overcast. We were also able to admire a school of dolphins right next to the ship. :)

Experiência incrível e que deixa vontade de repetir! Todo o staff é 5 estrelas, muito simpáticos e prestáveis. Adorámos o mergulho no mar em frente ao Cabo Girão e o delicioso bolo de mel acompanhado do Vinho Madeira. Recomendo vivamente esta experiência!

Lovely trip including seeing the Dolphins/ Whales and a swim. A glass of Madeira Wine and some Madeira Cake to finish off on the way back.

Great trip, very friendly staff. Comfortable, but with ships loads of character. Wine tasting and cake where superb touch.

Super fun boat trip; we actually saw dolphins and a whale and were allowed to take a dip in the sea half way through.
