Hundreds of whales and dolphins have set up home around the Azores. Sperm whales hang out here all year round, joined every so often by migratory species like blue, fin, humpback, minke and sei whales. And on the dolphin side of things, bottlenose, striped, Atlantic spotted and risso’s dolphins all patrol these waters. On this trip, you’ll have about 2-and-a-half hours at sea, giving you plenty of time to seek out these fascinating creatures. Keep your camera handy – you might spot a pod of dolphins playing together, or spy a whale leaping from the water. The boat operators are really conscious of respecting the animals, so you’ll stay at a distance if they’re resting or feeding. And just bear in mind that, as the animals are in the wild, sightings aren’t guaranteed.
The duration of this tour and time at sea depends on sea and weather conditions and animal sightings. The minimum age for this tour is 6 years old. This is an active tour and not possible to join if you're pregnant or suffer joint/back problems.
