About the Experience

Take the opportunity to watch some of more than 25 cetacean species that can be found in the Azores, with Futurismo, one of the most experienced whale watching companies in the Azores. 

Although nature offers no guarantees, whales and dolphins are regularly seen during our half day tours, along with turtles, seabirds and other marine life. Before the boat trip our biologists 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.

During the tour each passenger is required to wear a life vest (except on our catamaran). Futurismo also provides rain coats and trousers if necessary.
