Hello! I'd like to book a trip for my parents, it's a present for my fathers 60th birthday :). They want to do the trip on the 24th of July (a Tuesday). Is it possible to book this far in advance - will you be sure a boat is going out that day?
And is there a recommended time? My parents were thinking to go on the 2 o'clock trip, unless the morning or evening trip have a higher success rate in spotting dolphins and whales?
And finally, the website says there is a pickup service. They will be staying at Rua Luis Figueiroa de Albuguergue 15, Funchal, Madeira. Is it possible to pick them up at that exact location? A hotel (or other pickup spot) nearby would also be OK for them.
Looking forward to your response and hope to be booking the trip soon!
Thank you so much for your contact.
We woud be delighted to have you on board :)
We hope to share a wonderful experience with you.
We propose a whale watching tour, with a chance to swim or snorkel near the coast. We might find Whales, dolphins or turtles and birds :)
The boat is comfortable and it's equipped with a cabin, sundeck, sunroof, toilet, shower and a refrigerator among other.
During the 2:30 hours tour we offer water, ice tea, fruit juice, Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola zero, 7up and beer.
If you decide to take a swim and if you wish, we also provide hair and body towels, fins, masks and snorkels. :)
We also have blankets, in case you feel cold.
If you don't mind sharing the boat with other people, the price is 49,00€ for each adult. Children under 12, have 50% discount and under 3 years old go free. If you wish to have a private tour, the price is 300,00€, which includes a bottle of sparkling wine besides all the other mentioned offers.
Our pick-up service adds 30€ to the total of the reservation. We pick you up at the hotel and take you back :)
We still have places for the date you have requested at 2 pm and 5.30 pm. If you prefer at 2 pm it would be okay to watch the animals. We have a spotter on the hills who helps us find the animals, so we have more chances to find them.
Would you like me to take care of your booking?
