  • Funchal 3 in 1: 48-Hour Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour

    2. Funchal 3 in 1: 48-Hour Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour

    Discover the extraordinary beauty of Madeira at your own pace with a 2 or 5 day ticket for the yellow hop-on and hop-off sightseeing bus. Jump off at the sites in the capital of Funchal that interest you most, and get access to its surroundings, including the panoramic viewpoints of "The Pearl of the Atlantic." Jump off at any of the 30 stops along a route that takes you through Funchal’s quaint, cobblestone streets. Enjoy breathtaking views from observation points, such as the one at Pico dos Barcelos. Discover landmark monuments such as Town Hall Square and the Cathedral. Marvel at pretty gardens, and hop off at the Madeira Wine Museum to enjoy a glass of the island’s famous wine! The 3-in-1 ticket also provides access to the picturesque fishing village of Câmara de Lobos, thought to be the original landing point for the Portuguese explorer João Gonçalves Zarco. Gaze out at the Atlan...

    Great way to tour the island. Although frequency of the buses is very poor. Also timetable schedules should be extended to allow later departure from Funchal.

  • Madeira: Scuba Diving Experience

    3. Madeira: Scuba Diving Experience

    Your scuba diving adventure will begin with a short theory lesson about the practice of diving before doing a trial dive in the shallow waters of the swimming pool.  Once you feel comfortable and know how to handle the equipment, you’ll be ready for the real deal. Your diving instructor will take you for an exhilarating dive out in the sea to explore the spectacular underwater world of Madeira. The dive itself will last about 45 minutes at a maximum depth of 12 meters. At the end of the tour, you’ll receive a certificate of participation to make your next underwater adventure an absolute breeze.

    It was my first time to try out scuba diving and I couldn’t find a better place. I find the prep and instructors’ tips very helpful and I am sure I will do it again.

  • Madeira: Half-Day Kayak and Snorkeling Tour

    4. Madeira: Half-Day Kayak and Snorkeling Tour

    Experience the best of the Underwater Nature Reserve of Garajau on this half-day snorkel and kayak tour.

    Meet your guide at your hotel and travel to the shop. After a quick safety briefing and introduction to kayaking, head to the Lido Galomar beach complex, where your activity begins.

    Enjoy a relaxing kayak journey to a private beach that is only accessible by sea. Upon arrival at the beach, take some time to snorkel and swim in the crystal-clear waters of the park. Keep an eye out for the park's native sea animals.

    On the way back to the beach, kayak through some beautiful small caves before getting dropped off back at your hotel.

    The kayaking was really nice with beautiful surroundings and a refreshing swim on the way back. The snorkelling was a bit disappointing as we didn’t get to see many things. Despite that I would definitely recommend this experience!

Great value for money, especially the 5 day ticket, but be careful, this is only for the yellowbus, not for the red City sightseeing hop on hop off buses :-)
