All about the Dolphin and Whale Watching in Azores.

The islands are known for their abundance in marine life, so you will not want to miss the chance to see dolphins and whales up close! We want to make sure your experience is a successful one, so before boarding our boats, our marine biologists will give you a briefing on what to expect and species you may get to see. The Azores are home or crossing point to approximately one third of the world’s whales and dolphins, so although we cannot guarantee sightings, the chances are very good of finding these amazing mammals swimming leisurely or frolicking in groups! 

We currently offer dolphin and whale watching on the islands of Sao Miguel and Pico! If you would like to explore the option of a dolphin and whale holiday with daily activities, contact us for a brochure! We offer packages with daily trips and snorkeling exploration!
