Circle by boat around the Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, see and learn about the beautiful submerged volcano’s geology and living habitat!

The tour starts with a short briefing introducing the islet’s geology and wildlife, the nature reserve’s, and boat safety. Follow the Guide and Skipper to your designated boat for 5-minute travel by sea to the Islet.

Enjoy a boat exploration to see and admire the volcanic marvel and its notorious geological features and the seasonal highlights of marine life, with an enchanting narrative while circling the Ilhéu de Vila Franca do Campo.

A beautiful exposed relic of an oceanic volcanic cone and unique wildlife-thriving maritime sanctuary sculpted by the forces of sea and seismic activity, for Birds and Fish to even Lightfoot Crabs, it is especially life-rich from Fall to Spring! It is also a prominent influential factor in Vila Franca do Campo and the island’s history, a representation of the resilient embrace of life on the edge of the Atlantic.

Your guide will keep you informed on what you are observing and is available for any specific questions – feel free to ask! After the boat tour it is time to head back to the Marina for check-out.

We recommend you to be at the specified time registration and briefing. Eat light, bring your personal water supply, sunscreen and chapstick for the Sun, and warm clothing since temperatures may vary. Light food is permitted onboard, and a Camera is essential, specially for photography lovers – please protect any electronics and personal equipment.
