A few years ago I visited the Azores and fell irrevocably in love. This place is rightly considered one of the most beautiful on the planet. Unique and diverse nature - from incredible lakes to mysterious forests and volcanoes. The Azores is also one of the best places in the world to see whales and dolphins! It is possible to find several species in just one day. This place is spectacular on land and in the sea. Let's experience it together! I am sure you will fall in love with the Azores just like me.

Itinerary details difficulty level - easy
Arrival to Terceira Island (airport TER)
We will meet you at the airport and explore the island a little if time allows. After dinner, we will hold a briefing on how to properly interact with cetaceans. Their well-being is our priority.
We will conduct a brief training on holding your breath for those who plan to freedive. If you don't want to freedive you can enjoy watching dolphins from the surface with fins and snorkel.
Dolphins, whales and amazing places on the island
We will spend three days in the Atlantic Ocean in search of dolphins and whales. Every day we will be out in the ocean for 3-6 hours (depending on the weather, presence of cetaceans, and general mood of our group). We will swim with wild dolphins whenever we find them. For those who are afraid to swim, you can choose to remain on the boat or stay on the surface of the water in a lifejacket, fins, and snorkel. We will help you feel comfortable, see dolphins, and swim with them.
After our sea adventures we will be exploring the most beautiful places on the island - incredible forests, cliffs with stunning views, the famous Algar do Carvão cave formed after a volcanic eruption, a park with wild deer, beautiful beaches, and warm natural pools. There are many gorgeous places on this small island - we will visit as many as we can after adventures with dolphins and whales.
Flight to the second island - Sao Miguel
After breakfast and a long relaxing morning, we will catch a flight to a new island in the afternoon. Sao Miguel is the largest island of the 9 belonging to the Azores archipelago. It is very different from the quiet Terceira, but most of the places for which the Azores are famous are located on this island. On the first day, we will explore the capital, visit a pineapple farm and go to dinner at a local restaurant.
Explore unforgettable places of Sao Miguel
Get ready for 2 spectacular days. The beauty of Sao Miguel island will put you in awe. We will visit the famous Sete Cidades Crater lakes (Lagoa das Sete Cidades), the Terra Nostra botanical park, dozens of observation areas with incredible views, a tea plantation, and famous hot springs, where we will soak up after busy days full of adventures and fun.
Having collected all those amazing experiences we will take this final day to ensure your safe journey home. We will take you to the airport, share pictures and memories from the trip, and send you home with long warm hugs.
