Madeira Island is the main island of the archipelago of the same name. It is located in the Atlantic Ocean at a distance of about 973 km from Lisbon. It is an island of volcanic origin, with a subtropical climate. If the archipelago presents remarkable monuments and landscapes, its coasts are also worth a visit. During a weekend, by boat or catamaran along its coasts, you can enjoy the sun, and the magnificent view of the island, with the opportunity to see dolphins and whales. This will obviously be an opportunity to enjoy a good swim in the sea. Each outing lasts about 3 hours.

Details of the stay: Madeira between land and sea - 3 days

Day 1 : Arrival in the archipelago

Installation at the hotel, then go to the port. Imagine yourself in the 15th century, aboard a replica of Christopher Columbus' caravel, walking along Madeira's south coast, whale and dolphin watching, with a swim break towards the cliff of Cape Girão

Day 2 : Tour of the island on a caravel

Imagine yourself in the 15th century, aboard a replica of Christopher Columbus' caravel, walking along Madeira's south coast, whale and dolphin watching, with a swim break towards the cliff of Cape Girão. This day will remain forever etched in your memory, because the boat is already a beautiful journey at first sight

Day 3 : By catamaran

This last day will allow you to sail around the archipelago in a catamaran in the other direction. Dolphin watching will be done as close as possible to you since you will be, unlike the caravel, as close to the sea as possible. Break on a deserted islet, picnic lunch and swimming. In the late afternoon return to Funchal, walk and dinner. Departure the next day in the morning
