AMAZING, Definitely not a trip to miss! Let me start by saying if you are looking for a dolphin/whale watching trip whilst in Madeira then look no further than On Tales and you will definitely not be disappointed. We were directed to them by our rental property and after reading the reviews we decided to give them a go. They are not the cheapest tour available but their facilities, customer service and tour is definitely worth what you pay. We went on a 10am tour on Friday 22nd September, in total there were 5 of us on the trip (myself and my husband and a family of 3) alongside 2 crew members. Emanuel was very knowledgeable and both crew members first priority was to make sure their guests had a great trip and looked out for us the whole time (my husband felt a bit sea sick and Emanuel did everything he could to help, including giving advice about how to reduce the sea sick feeling - which really did help, Thank you again Emanuel). Drinks were included and you were able to ask for a drink when you need one. Their spotter on land allows them to ensure you will see something, during our trip we saw two very large pods of spotted dolphins and even a short glimps of a turtle (no whales but they are wild animals so this was not the fault of the company - and it wasn't through lack of trying to spot some). The latter part of the trip passengers were given the opportunity to drive the boat (if they wished) under the supervision of Emanuel and also to go swimming in the sea, with snorkels, masks, flippers and towels all provided by On Tales. All in all we were blown away by the trip. Given the small group sizes (I believe it is Max 6 people on a trip), the attention to detail, the fantastic service and the spotter ensuring you are directed to the right place THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT A TRIP TO MISS.
What an experience !!!! It can take an hour to found daulphins - because they use natural methods to find them - but once we found them they are a loooooot of daulphins !! They are so cute ! And they swim very very fast (until 50 km/h). The staff of the company is awesome AND passionated by their job. I really recommand to go there and test !
Fantastic trip - whales, two types of dolphins, and sea turtles. Our skipper and crew were very knowledgeable, and made a huge effort. On top of that, a safe and well organised trip.
Friendly and professional. Really couldn't have wanted more. Highly recommended.
I had a amazing dolphin tour including drinks and swimming in the sea. The boat was very comfortable and the Team are very kindly - like family! Hope to enjoy it next Time again :)
Great experience. Lovely people. Very enjoyable trip
Couldn't have been better! Emmanuel is so charming and knowledgeable, and the boat ride would have been wonderful if we'd only seen the waves, but they stayed out so we got to see pilot whales! Really incredible experience, I loved it.
After Reading all the reviews about the different tours we went to on tales. We were given a warm welcome at the Office, And given the advice to do the trip the next day because of the wind. Totday we had a Great trip, with almost no wind, And Many many dolphins jumping, doing backflips And everything. It was Great, And the captain was really nice, And made sure everyone had a Great time. They provided us with drinks, advice regarding my wifes sea Sickness (it worked, not seasick at all), snorkles And towels for Some snorkling! It was all taken care of. Great safety instructions, so we were all comfortable. I can 100% recommend on tales for the tour! Thanks for the Great time.
