During your journey, we will give you the unique opportunity to set foot on one of the most emblematic natural reserves of the Madeiran archipelago. You can participate in a short guided tour around the island or just enjoy the clear waters for a swim and snorkel break. A buffet made of Madeiran specialties will be provided on board and if you are lucky you may even spot some dolphins or whales during the trip.
