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.
HOW WE WORK
What makes us the best choice for whale watching
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 sucess rating in 2016 was of 100%
During the boat trip you will be accompanied by an experienced crew who will fascinate you about all marine life that exist around our island

Are you concerned that you might end up not seeing whales or dolphins? If you choose the guaranteed observation you dont have to worry about that. If your are unlucky we will offer you a second trip with no adddictional costs.
(Why do we say that this way it will be guaranteed? Well thanks to our statistics we can tell you that it is almost impossible to have two trips in a row not seeing animals.)
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.
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.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"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."
