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.
