Incentive Activities

Whether it is deep-sea fishing, golf, hiking, a safari or just relaxing by the pool, we can organise the perfect incentive package in the perfect venue. Reid's elegant interiors include 4 Lounges, 5 Restaurants and a Tea terrace overlooking the Gardens where English Traditional Tea is served.

Deep Sea Fishing

Explore the rich ocean that surrounds the island, whether using our expertise to land marlin or tuna, trawling the coast for barracuda and snapper, or discovering the crystal clear waters. For those wishing an introduction to big game fishing, you can experience the thrill of the rod and reel under our careful instruction. Local boats are fully equipped for all sport fishing requirements and ready to cruise the bountiful waters of Madeira for those record-size blue marlin and tuna.

Deep sea fishing boats can take up to 8 people per boat, including a skipper and professional fisherman.

Santa Maria Replica

Portuguese explorers in the 15th century sailed the waters of Madeira in search of wealth.
In keeping with the tradition, Reid's Palace offers a varied selection of sailing boats, including a replica of Christopher Columbus' boat, Santa Maria, to explore the treasures of Madeira's waters.  Hire the replica of Christopher Columbus boat for a south coast trip or to hold theme cocktail on board.

Maximum 100 people.

Catamaran rides

We see more and more catamarana in the bay of Funchal and we can hire some to take the participants meeting the dolphins & whales and access a place only accessible by boat for lunch - a peninsula on the South Coast named “Fajã dos Padres” with a plantation of tropical and sub-tropical fruits, such as banana, papaya, mangos, avocados!).

Catamarans can take up to 80 people and departure can be done through Reid’s Palace sea access.


Our team can organize sailing classes on Beneteau type of boats. The light breezes around Madeira are just perfect to learn or practice further how to sail.  Alternatively, we can organize sunset cruise tours with cocktail on board. 

Boat trips from 10 to 30 people per boat

Private Yatch (Regency Boat)

This is definitely the most exclusive way to navigate on the Madeiran shores.
The Sunseeker Manhattan 74 model, is luxuriously equipped and exceptionally spacious. Reaching a speed of 35 knots, it is guaranteed to exceed the highest expectations and is a good suggestion for a private and very pleasant day on the sea. 

Trips to Desert Islands and Porto Santo Islandare also available.

Boat can take up to 20 people.

Boat Safari to “Fajã dos Padres”

A fantastic day out, comprising a boat trip, a lunch, a lift experience and Jeep ride. We start from Reid's to the yacht marina to meet the boat that will take us along the coastline of Madeira towards west, to “Fajã dos Padres”, a beautiful sea plateau with a plantation of tropical and sub-tropical fruits, such as banana, papaya, mangos, avocados! 
Here we stop and have a swim in the beautiful clear waters with the possibility of snorkelling, followed by a typical lunch in the subtropical farm, mostly based on fish. After lunch we go up the cliff by lift “350 meters up” (around 6 min) where we will meet the jeeps that will take us to Cabo Girão with it’s fantastic view over the coast, then through Câmara de Lobos and back to the Hotel.

Groups up to 120 persons.

The natural pools of Porto Moniz. 

At the western tip of the island provide a different bathing experience while the ocean breakers splash into the rock carved basins. Other activities available: scuba diving, paragliding, kayaking, surf, windsurf and much more.
