Thank you Pico island and Pico sport for a great vacation! My sister and I experienced everything we came for: huge marine animals, sharks, rays and dolphins. Excellent staff in the diving center (André, Karo, Frank and many others), great natural pools and wineyards, nice food and an atmosphere of discovering a beautiful part of the world, not many people...

We booked a whale-watching trip with Pico sport. They were really friendly people. We first got an introduction from a very motivated biologist. She explained the water world around the Azores. She loved sharks and couldn't stop talking about it :). After that we stepped in to the boat with Anna our guide and the captain. Altough we didn't see... More

We went to Princess Alice with PicoSport and it was an awful experience. They put 15 people on 1 boat so you literally had very little place too move around. Diving tanks were rolling on the floor because there were simply too many of them. And on top of it all the toilet was not working - something you don't... More

It's not necessary to comment our unpleasant experience. You just need to read other users opinions to realize that the owner of this enterprise is really bad-mannered and surly. If you want to avoid a bad experience, avoid Picosport.

I am happy to see how committed theses divers are to create an amazing diving experience! They are passionate about what they do, and are very kind and original people. Andre Alcantara in particular is a very charismatic character, that adds to the experience. You have the feeling of having both a great diving experience, and a genuine rapport with... More

Frank, the owner tries everything so you can go Diving with the Mobilas and the blue sharks. He offers an alterative program if the weather is too bad to go diving (tours, rental car,...). He refunds the dives that you couldn't make. Remarkable ! Extremely nice and cooperative staff

As I promised André (the nice guy at Pico-Sport's divecentre, who takes care of the whole smooth operation), I will put some words on this site, mostly to let other divers know about our experiences. In short they we're pretty good! We're two very spoilt divers, diving for ages all around the world, and we particularly loved the laid back,... More
