We truly our enjoyed Pico Sports experiences. The staff was very helpful and the owner (Frank) were pleasant and helpful in getting everyone their gear sized and fitted properly. Not an easy task to prepare 30 people all at once and do it well. The first morning we went swimming with the dolphins and had a great time. Although not... More

Never choose this company for any activity you will do on Pico, unless you wish to be screamed at and threatened for not choosing to book *all* activities and your accomodation at Pico Sport.

Had a warm welcome by two employees at the airport. They introduced me to Frank and staff members and showed me the divecenter. All were very kind and the dive center looked good. Could leave my dive gear there so I would not have to cary it around every day. Had some wonderfull dives at Pico and later southwest of... More

I returned the keys, they returned the money.... More

We did a whale watching tour on a boat that didn't have enough seats for everybody. The crew was good. I did 3 dives. Bad organization for the inscriptions, both my fins were bad, almost no information about the dive sites. Very expensive for the service given.

We visited the Azores this summer for vacation. 5 days on Sao Miguel, 4 on Pico. We loved Sao Miguel, but the peace and tranquility on Pico was unrivaled. One day we went whale watching with Pico Sport. Frank, the owner, is a wonderful man and we had a splendid time out on the water. The whales were a bit... More

After five years of visits to Azores with Pico sport I think it is fair to say that there is no better organization for putting people into close, sustainable, encounters with cetacea. Any minor inconvenience with accommodation or logistics pales in comparison with this consistent ability

I don't know who has written the last 2 reviews but they sound suspicously like tourist promotions and do not reflect the reality of this company. I too stayed in a very dingy appartment for a big price of €50 a night which was very much below the standard of other places I stayed in in the Azores. Also they... More
