Tour leader Catherine Strong is a big fan of the small Atlantic island of Madeira. To hear Catherine talking about the tour's highlights - the wildlife, whale-watching, dolphins, itinerary and hotel - please click on this link: http://soundcloud.com/catherine-strong/madeira1

Madeira's waters have resident pods of Bottlenose Dolphins and Short-finned Pilot Whales.
