Looking for a little knowledge in planning a trip from Lisbon. It seems like it would be easier to take in the Azores, Canary Islands, Madeira, Porto Santo, and Morrocco in one trip rather then returning to Lisbon to set out again. I have to do some Skyscanner and Google Flights queries for fares. 

@misticjeff Do let us know what you are finding for Madeira in March. I believe I saw a ferry from Madeira to Porto Santo that takes 3 1/2 hours. 

I will be concentrating on an itinerary this week and hoping the consulate gets my passport to me.

I will have at most 3 nights, more likely 2 nights, so will just be doing a Funchal tour of some sort (i'll be with my sister and my ex and we have limited time)

I did contact Doug & Monique from the Track Us Down YouTube channel and they suggest this company:

Also check out Hit the Road Madeira for tours of the island.

@misticjeff We typically stay 2-3 nights per location on scouting trips just to get an overview. We were thinking of concentrating on Funchal. We have seen the Hit the Road Madeira tours and that may be in the cards. Stay Classy has quite a few highlights of the island as well. We follow Doug & Monique as well. 

Our 1-day Lisbon itinerary we completed last Friday, with our friends, took us to Pena Palace in Sintra and down to the beach in Cascais. Then we came back through Belem and into Lisbon for highlights. It is hard to beat that. Should be posting an overview on YouTube later this week.

@jonesdn2020 The boat trip takes some 2 1/2 hours (60km), but there's no boat until mid-February, as the only ferry is now docked for it's yearly maintenance. The only connection will be by plane.

@antonio_f Appreciate the heads up. We will wait until the ferry is operational. A ferry ride is much more enjoyable than the plane.
