Activity description

Whale Watching in the Azores Islands is unquestionably one of the most exciting and unforgettable Adventures!

Join an exciting Marine Wildlife tour with Biologists and Naturalist Guides, to see and learn more about Whales, Dolphins, Turtles, Fish, Birds, and the season’s marine biodiversity of the Azores Islands!

Unlock the island’s scenic coastline, the sandy beaches and the Princess Ring Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, along with all the best-kept secrets of sea life in the heart of the Atlantic.

The journey starts with a short informative briefing introducing to Cetacean (Whales and Dolphins) local species, their natural habitat, communication, migration, behavioral patterns, and onboard safety.

Everyone will follow the Guide and Skipper to board their designated boat, and go out to sea. Our lookout high inland will then locate our friends, and provide directions via VHF Radio to where the boat will travel – initially at high speed.
