No More Fuel

The Onde Solar catamaran is an energy autonomous solar electric boat, designed as a fully sustainable excursion vessel to enjoy the sea. The solar catamaran brings true eco-tourism to Madeira. Moreover with no CO2 or noise emissions involved, a trip on the Onde Solar Catamaran helps preserve the ocean! Normally, the heart of the concept is silence: being on board without any distractions lets the journey become the destination!  However, as one can witness on the videos on the company’s social media page, music is often played.  Should you wish to book a sailing and enjoy the sound of silence, then please do let the company know when you book or ask to charter the vessels solely for your group.
