Azores: Whale Watching and Islet Boat Tour

1. Azores: Whale Watching and Islet Boat Tour

Begin the excursion with an introduction to cetaceans (whales and dolphins) and other marine species, their natural habitat, communication, migration, and behavioral patterns. After the briefing, board the designated boat and head out to sea. Approach the whales slowly and carefully as the naturalist guides and marine biologists on board provide commentary. Next, take a tour around the Princess Ring Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, for an up-close look at the volcano and resident wildlife. Light food is permitted on board, and a camera is essential to capture the wildlife you spot on the tour.

If whale watching in the Azores / Sao Miguel then so. From the introduction before we started, to the itinerary chosen, the commitment from the crew, to the fact that we actually saw whales and lots of dolphins. Great provider of this tour (TerraAzul).

Very happy with this activity. Our guide Sandra a charm. Passionate about her work and with constant explanations. Despite not speaking Spanish, we understood her perfectly. A 10 person. The zodiac is comfortable and time flies by. I would repeat.

Such a nice crew and super cool boats - they took us quite far overseas so we could follow the animals to where they were. Was a good experience.

Excellent guide, could see dolphins closely and spermwhale from a distance

A passionate guide who respects nature. A real pleasure. Thank you ☺️
