One of the 10 Best Whale Watching Destinations
Amazing trip. Well organised with Land based lookouts guiding the boat. Knowledgeable and lovely tour guide. Definitely a must do.
One of the Best Places to watch Whales around the World!
Great experience!!! Very fair people who only go out when the chance is almost 100% for spotting animals.
The staff were friendly, knowledgeable of the marine life and even named the different whales and dolphins in all the different languages of the guests.
One of Europe’s Best Whale Watching (and Dolphin Swimming) Destinations!

Enjoy a fun boat trip to see and learn more facts about the majestic Whales and playful Dolphins, and the great Marine Wildlife diversity of Turtles, Fish and Birds. It is a recommended opportunity to unveil the beautiful coastline of these extinct volcano islands, and the best kept secrets of the Azores sea life.
The journey starts with a 20 minute briefing introducing you to Cetaceans, their natural habitat, communication and behavioral patterns, and a Naturalist/Marine Biologist guide will always be available throughout your expedition to inform you about what you are observing, and to answer any specific questions.
Cetaceans are spotted inland by our Whale Lookout, who provides the location via VHF Radio to where the boat travels, initially at high speed. So hold on, have fun, and enjoy the islands scenery in the company of the Whales and Dolphins of the Atlantic!
We recommend you to be 30 minutes early for registration and briefing. Bring Water, Sunscreen and Chapstick for the Sun, and warm clothing since temperatures vary throughout the day, no matter what season. Light meals are also permitted, and a Camera is essential to capture lifetime memories, specially for photography lovers.
You can go Whale Watching regardless of your physical condition, always depending on the sea and weather. Due to boating turbulence, we do not recommend it to people with a weak back or delicate health, nor to pregnant or children under the age of 4.
