    Our travel tips for a short trip to Madeira

    We went on a 3-day trip to Madeira, a Portuguese island in the middle of the Atlantic.

Madeira‘s truly a natural gem. It’s the ideal holiday destination if you need some contact with nature in its purest state.

    To swim with dolphins in Madeira – a dream come true

    By Bo, co-founder of SeaBookings, working from Lisbon:  From all sea experiences that we provide on SeaBookings, swimming with dolphins has always been the one that fascinated me most. In Portugal, you can only swim with wild dolphins on the islands of the Azores and Madeira. The first time I was on Madeira, I did not have the chance to make this dream come true. Fortunately, the second time, I made my dream to swim with dolphins in Madeira come true. And it totally exceeded my expectations. For me, regarding all tours involving cetaceans, like the whale and dolphin watching and swimming with dolphins tours, it’s very important to be…
