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


Enjoy a fun boat trip to see and learn more facts about the majestic Whales and playful Dolphins, and the great Marine Wildlife diversity of Turtles, Fish and Birds! It is a recommended opportunity to unveil the beautiful coastline of these extinct volcano islands, and the best kept secrets of the sea life in the middle of the Atlantic.


The journey starts with a 20-minute briefing introducing you to Cetacean Species, their natural habitat, communication and behavioural patterns. A Marine Biologist or Wildlife Guide guide will always be available throughout to inform you about what you are observing, and to answer any specific questions.


Cetaceans are spotted inland by our Whale Lookout, who provides the location via VHF Radio to where the boat travels, initially at high speed. So hold on, have fun, and enjoy the island’s scenery in the company of the Whales and Dolphins of the Atlantic!


We recommend you to be at the specified time registration and briefing. Bring Water, Sunscreen and Chapstick for the Sun. Warm clothing is also essential as temperatures vary throughout the day, no matter what season. Light meals are also permitted, and a do not forget your Camera!


You can go Whale Watching regardless of your physical condition, always depending on the sea and weather. Due to boating turbulence, we do not recommend it to people with a weak back or delicate health, nor to pregnant women or children under the age of 4.


You will meet us at the Marina of Vila Franca do Campo for check-in, at 08:30.
