Sail the coasts of Terceira island and admire the whales of the Atlantic in their natural habitat. See one of the world's largest mammals up close in this unique experience!
We'll pick you up from your hotel first thing in the morning and make our way to the port, to begin our boat tour around the coast of Terceira island. And as we sail the Atlantic ocean we'll enjoy incredible views of the island from the boat.
As we sail you'll have the opportunity to see whales in their natural habitat. The strategic position of the Azores between Europe and America means the islands are an important stop-off point for the whales which migrate at different times of year. In summer it's common to see pilot whales, whilst in the months of spring and autumn blue whales, the largest animal on earth, are more common.
During the tour, we'll also learn of the more surprising characteristics of these protected mammals, and the necessity to care for the environment and preserve the biodiversity of Terceira. And if we're lucky, we might see some of the friendly dolphins which share the waters of the island with their larger cousins.
Whales are commonly found off the coast of Terceira island. However, they are wild animals, and unpredictable. We cannot guarantee the number of whales nor the species we'll see during the tour.
