If you want to go whale-watching with an organisation that cares about the environment, go with Terra Azul! All staff are superfriendly and provide lots of really interesting insights on the different species that migrate past or stay around the Azores. We saw three fin whales and a humpback whale on our tour. They came quite close to our boat.... More

Words can't really describe what it felt like to be out there on the ocean and see these animals in real life, so close to us, jumping, floating, diving so happily and peacefully. We saw 2 types of whales and 2 types of dolhins, so lucky! It was an amazing feeling that we will never forget. The team is professional... More

During our visit to Sao Miguel, we went out whale watching on one day and swimming with dolphins on another. I've been whale watching in several countries, but this trip gave us our best sightings of whales. The swim with dolphins was one of the highlights of my life! We dived into the open ocean, a couple of miles off... More

I've been on a few Whale watching tours and this one was definitely the best. I would go a step further to say that Terra Azul is the best whale watching outfit on Sao Miguel. The inflatable boats that they use are very safe and stable. The boats themselves offer a better experience because you have unobstructed views and you... More

We went whale watching in October with Terra Azul and loved every minute of our trip! More than two hours and a half of navigating the ocean in search of dolphins and whales, plus a bonus sight of a swimming turtle. We saw tens of common and bottlenose dolphins, as well as a sperm whale, who respectfully dived just long... More

Amazing! We initially booked the "swimming with dolphins" tour for the first day of our holidays. However, there were few dolphins that day, and they were far away, so we had the choice to try to go anyway or to rebook. We chose the latter, and I'm glad we did: two days later, we got the chance to swim with... More

We had an experience we will never forget swimming with dolphins! Our first outing was cancelled because of foggy weather & no spotting of dolphins so we rescheduled for the following afternoon (I like that this company doesn't send you out unless they spot dolphins with binoculars from the land). The following afternoon, we then went out on the boat... More

A lovely trip. Friendly staff and a great 'boat'. We were fortunate enough to see three types of dolphins at close quarters. A fantastic experience, but saw no whales. They are wild animals and we were just unlucky. The operator's records showed that about 60% of people got to see a whale during the week we visited. We received a... More
