Full description

Once you come to the Azores you cannot miss the opportunity of seeing whales and dolphins in their natural habitat. Before this amazing boat trip through the blue ocean of the island, our biologists will give you a briefing to explain which cetacean species can be observed, safety measures aboard, how we respect the animals and rules of observation at sea as well as some historical facts. After that, we will continue our tour on the sea.

During this fantastic activity, it will be possible to watch some of more than 25 cetacean species. Although nature offers no guarantees, whales and dolphins are regularly seen on our half day tours, along with turtles, seabirds and other marine life.

After lunch, we depart on our jeep tour. This tour takes you around the border of the caldera of Sete Cidades, where you can have an awesome view over the green and the blue lakes.  These two lakes are situated in the crater of a dormant volcano and are connected to each other by a natural narrow channel that today has a bridge over it.  Despite the connection, the twin lakes are ecologically different although there is a big number of myths and legends to explain their origin. After leaving the crater of Sete Cidades we stop off in Ferraria where, if the tide is low, you have the possibility to bathe in a natural swimming pool that is heated by an underwater thermal spring.

Watching whales
We came from Minesota where there is not an oppurtunity to see whales otr dolphins. I have to say seeing them alive, on their natural habitat was magnificent. We manage to saw some big specimens and for what the biologist told us it is quite safe if we respect their space. The 7 cities lagoon is very beautifull and the view from the top great for photos. Thanks to all.

Complete day trip
We started in the morning with a boat trip to the see the whales and dolphins because our daughter simply loves this animals. A biologist was there to give us all the relevant info. Then we had a tasty traditional lunch (i don´t remenber the name of the place) and then we went to the famous 7 cidades lagoon an impressive natural spot with many stories that our guide told us about. In the end we still have a termal bath at Ferraria. We recomend.
