Activity description

Live a fantastic experience while in the Azores - get onboard, and join Picos de Aventura for a snorkeling tour to swim with the friendliest dolphins of the Atlantic ocean. Swim with dolphins in their natural habitat - the open sea - and feel in perfect symbiosis with these unique creatures. 

Get ready for an exciting adventure in the deep blue sea. While swimming in the crystal clear waters, the dolphins of the Atlantic ocean will approach you and swim around you. Curious and smart as they are, they will try to identify you and welcome you to the open sea. 

All the tours by Picos De Aventura are respectful to the animals and respectful to the international laws for the preservation of the natural resources. 

You will see the common dolphins (Delphinus delphis), Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis), rissos (Grampus griseus) or bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus).

We had the luck to see common dolphins several times while in the water. Once there were really close and dived below us and the boat. On an earlier event we had the chance to see several whales inkl. one very big sperm whale. Two times saw the tail fin!!!
