We Will Travel Again.

We had the time of our lives sharing time at sea with our guests.
One of our guests told me that we made dreams happen for him.

Robert was looking at a group of stenella dolphins hunting and jumping all over the ocean.
Miranda, our boat, was surrounded by them and by cory's shearwaters diving and hunting the small fish.

This was our day-to-day life and our very purpose!
For the past years we have been out there, picking up plastic from the ocean, cooperating with the scientific and environmental authorities, making the ocean a safer place for all, and hopefully, Offering memories to each one of our guests.

We are Ontales - Whale and Dolphin Watching on Madeira Island (https://ontales.com). Please visit us on line and chek us on tripadvisor.
CoVid- 19 forced us to Stop on Saturday 14-03-2020.

A few days later, the health authority ordered us to Stop too. We fully suport and understand.  We now need help to survive as a company and as a team in order to be back out there later this year.

Donations will be used to pay salaries, keeping our boat and licences active. It is Urgent! We are running out of options. We estimate that it will  take at least least 6 months to be back in full.

During that time we will be working hard to be prepared as well as possible for a new reality. We will also use this to improve our skills and hopefully do better.

Cetacean are still out there.
