Description

Whale Watching – Half Day- Faial Island

Your holidays in Faial Island start here! During this activity, you will have the opportunity to watch some of the 28 cetacean species that can be found in the Azores. Whales and dolphins are regularly seen during our half day tours, along with turtles, seabirds, and other marine wildlife. As they are wild animals, each tour is a surprise! We cannot control where they will be or if they will show up during every trip! Our guarantee is that if you do not see any whale nor dolphin, we do give you the chance to reschedule your tour for free. Before the boat trip, our biologists will 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. The staff on board will warn you if they see anything in the water and give some explanations and details about the specific species that you will meet.  The trip will last about 3 hours before going back to the harbor.
