Due to its unique location in the middle of the Atlantic, the Azores is a perfect place to observe whales and dolphins all year round, with different species present at different times of the year. Most common species are sperm, fin and humpback whales, but even blue whales are spotted on occasion!

Start with a briefing in Angra marina about safety rules and what you can expect to see, before departing on a comfortable vessel designed for open waters. Enjoy amazing coastal views of Terceira and other nearby islands while the professional crew and land spotters direct the boat to the best locations.

Feel the joy and excitement of observing these fantastic sea mammals from close distance. Between the majestic whales and the friendly dolphins, you're guaranteed to always see something and the crew always does their best to show you as much as possible. A marine biologist on board will explain the marine life encountered and answer all you questions.

Between the enjoyable cruise and views around the island, a close encounter with whales and dolphins and the information provided, this trip is a wonderful experience overall!
