About the Experience

Our whale watching adventure will start at 8:30am in our shop at Ponta Delgada harbor, where you will be able to check-in. Just before getting aboard, our biologists will do a quick briefing about what cetaceans you might see, the rules we will follow to respect the animals in their natural environment and some interesting historical facts.

After the briefing, let’s start this once-in-a-lifetime adventure! Our marine biologists and guides will stay alert for you and announce when they see something. All along the trip, they will give fascinating details about the species you will see. During the boat tour, everyone is required to wear a life vest on zodiacs, not on our catamaran.

Once the whale watching tour is over, we will have lunch in a local restaurant in Ponta Delgada. After lunch, we depart on our jeep adventure. This tour takes you around the rim of Sete Cidades caldera, where you can have an awesome view over the green and blue lakes. This is definitely one of the most beautiful places around São Miguel island, as it is part of Portugal’s Seven Wonders. On our way back to Ponta Delgada, we will stop in Ponta da Ferraria, where you will have the possibility to bathe in the natural thermal pool located in a volcanic fissure. Please note that the visit to Ferraria is always weather dependent. It is not safe to go there with strong waves and strong wind.
