What people are saying about Estreito da Calheta

Great experience! Fatima and Pedro seemed very professional and respectful of the animals. Were able to tell a lot about the animals, but also took a step back in the right places to just be able to look! The feeling on the "old" Ribeira Brava" was also great! Can only be recommended to anyone who is interested in seeing these animals in the wild without harming them (- in my opinion, everyone else should leave it alone anyway !)

We were very satisfied with our guide Paula, it was a lot of fun and very informative! We were traveling with the traditional boat, if you get seasick easily you should go with the other boat, the Stenella. Thank you, it was fun!!!

Fantastic morning with plenty of sightings, our guide Paula and the captain Pedro were so friendly and knowledgeable, the whole thing was very professional

Exciting whale whatching experience. Saw a lot of dolphins and 2 different whales !! :)

very dedicated team that cares about animal welfare
