Explore the Atlantic Ocean with an experienced skipper and a wildlife guide! Together with Terra Azur crew, you have a one-a-kind chance to observe maritime life in its natural habitat, snorkel in the coastal areas of São Miguel Island or discover the volcanic nature reservoir of the Vila Franco do Campo Islet. Moreover, your guide will share with you the long-year maritime knowledge about this specific area and its characteristics. Decide what you want to see and let us show you the ocean paradise from behind the scenes. We are looking forward to meeting you in Vila Franco do Campo!
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 the local maritime wildlife, its characteristics and habitat. Before we head to the boat, we discuss your preferences and what you would want to see during the tour.
Diverse maritime life of Atlantic Ocean gives you a unique opportunity to observe many species of whales, dolphins, sea turtles, sea birds and fish. Depending on a season, there's a possibility to observe migratory animals such as Baleen Whale Giants and even four different species of dolphins. Our skipper receives the location of the animals via VHF Radio from the inland lookout point so we know the exact direction where we head with the boat. If you prefer to go snorkeling or explore a volcanic islet formation, we know the best spots to do it. During the whole tour, there's a wildlife guide who will happily answer your questions and provide you with his or her maritime knowledge. After approximately 3 hours, we go back to the point where the tour began.
