This is a great trip out. There is the opportunity to swim in the warmer water near some undersea vents, but for us the highlight was drifting along looking at Parrot fish, various rays and listening to the very knowledgable marine biologists explain it all and point out things you wouldn't otherwise have spotted yourself. Two hours went very fast.... More

We experienced this tour and we found it interesting. Above all the guides who are very passionate and properly explained in a simple way about the sealife and local natural phenomena. Strongly recommended especially for non-snorklying people and families with kids.

It's a really nice trip, where you will see the bottom of the sea next to the Island of Faial. They have (i think) two diferent trips. In ours, we went to see a cave in Monte da Guia, where they enter with the boat, and then we went to the other side of the bay, near the beach of... More

Great experience with a highly qualified team. My girlfriend and I enjoyed it so much we repeated a second trip. Surprisingly, it was even better, we got to see a dusky grouper of considerable size among other beautiful things. Just one remark regarding the previous comment. My girlfriend and I both own a PhD in Marine biology and were very... More

Staff seem unknowledgeable. Very poor info is given throughout the tour. Very little of sea life is seen. You´re better off snorkeling where you´ll see the same as on the boat and save alot more money. Definitly a tourist trap.
