A yacht charter experience around the islands of Madeira opens up a world of possibilities when it comes to some of the most deightful sights of marine life, such as many species of whale and dophin, from the common dolphin, the striped dolphin, and the short beaked dolphin, to the Baleen whale, the rorqual whale, and the Haeveside dolphin and many others.

 

Madeira benefits from a mediterranean climate, but there are some clear climate variations between the north and the south, as well as differences from one island to the next. The climate is strongly influenced by the Gulf Stream which keeps the temperature mild throughout the year, with an average of about 20°C annually.
