Overview

A magnificent replica of Christopher Columbus’s flagship, the Santa Maria, was built on the island of Madeira, between July 1997 and July 1998, in the fishing village of Camara de Lobos.

Since it was built thousands of people have sailed aboard the ship, experiencing more than just a normal boat ride, as you’ll soon find out on this 3-hour tour. Santa Maria de Colombo is also the most photographed boat in Madeira. A number of local and international TV documentaries have been made on board this famous ship, including The Discovery Channel’s The Quest for Columbus. The idea of this boat trip is for you to experience history, while at the same time enjoying the breathtaking views of Madeira´s south coast. In addition to the views, you’re very likely to see dolphins and whales as well. The ship will anchor in front of the majestic cliff of Cabo Girao, the highest sea cliff in Europe.

If you like you can enjoy a swim in the warm and crystal-clear water. A sail on the Santa Maria is your chance to re-live Christopher Columbus´s voyage of discovery and imagine how he and his crew felt as they headed into the unknown.

    was great

    I consider the cruise very successful. The weather was great. Wonderful views. we were able to see spotted dolphins. My husband, who is a true nature lover, was the most pleased with the trip. He regretted a bit that we were unable to see the whales, but he came to the conclusion that we might have more luck next time :). It is also worth mentioning that the Santa Maria crew were very friendly and helpful in providing information. The ship itself is very atmospheric. It is really worth going on such a cruise. Impressions are unforgettable.
