With a specialized maritime wildlife guide, you will learn everything about the existing species of whales living around the Azores. We aim to give you the feeling of an actual sea expedition, where you observe the majestic animals in their habitat.

Moreover, during the tour, we will also head to the volcanic highlight of the region, Princess Ring Islet, to admire the rough rock formations in the middle of the ocean.

We meet at the Marina of Vila Franca do Campo at the booked time. We brief you about safety on board and your guide gives you an introduction to Cetacean (whales and dolphins) local species, as well as their habitat, behaviour and migration. Then we head to the boat together with your guide for the tour and the skipper.
Once on the boat, we will get the location of the whales via VHF Radio from the inland lookout point. In this part of Atlantic Ocean live sperm whales alongside with tree additional dolphin and whales species. To watch the whales, we will slow down and the guide will tell you about the animals you will see at the time.

Nice boat trip , yet quite expensive if you don’t see any whales. 😌
Extraordinary experience and very nice and professional company.
Did a three hour tour today where you could watch dolphins. Unfortunately, whales did not show up. The crew was friendly and kind. I would love that they fished the garbage out of the ocean so that dolphins or fish wouldn't get tangled up. Also circled "Ilha viha Vila franca de compo", although this was not in the description. Great trip. Simply recommend.
