Whale and dolphin watching Madeira

We have always been curious about the other inhabitants of our planet. We will take you to see what the ancient Greeks called “Ketos” – marine monster – and observe them in their habitat.


What makes us the best choice for whale watching

Whale and Dolphin Watching Madeira


We work with a spotter on land to make your trip a better experience. It’s his job to locate and inform where are the whales & dolphins (which are also known as cetaceans). Thanks to him, our success rating in 2020 was 100% and 99% for the last 5 Years.

Whale and Dolphin watching Madeira




Spotted Dolphin Madeira

Spotted Dolphin

(Stenella frontalis)

Always ready for fun and play, this species is known by our team as "the clowns". Mostly seen in Summer, they enjoy following boats that are moving fast, and to play among themselves and with us, giving us amazing moments when they decide to “fly”. Being this friendly, this is one of the species we can swim with here in Madeira.

Pilot Whale Madeira

Pilot Whale

(Globicephala macrorhynchus)

One of the two species of cetaceans that we have a local population, but we also have groups in migration. Having a local group, it is always possible to find them, they always travel in groups. When we find them resting it’s one of the most impressive moments, because we can easily approach and admire these animals.

H2o Madeira



"We (2 adults, 2 kids of 10 and 13), spend a week on Madeira and the first thing to do was whale and dolphin watching. The first day we saw loads of Bottlenose, striped and common and a Turtle (and a lot of Portuguese man-o-war). The way H2O works is very relaxed and professional; they do not get to close to the dolphins but let them come to you and never stay to long. For the ones who enjoy a bit of adrenaline; make sure you have an operator with a RIB boat. We even did a second trip a couple of days later because we enjoyed it so much and we wanted to see the dolphins from within the water, which we enjoyed even more."
