I had a great time with pico sport! I went whale watching with them three times and saw a total of 7 species. I went snorkeling with dolphins as well, which was an amazing experience. skipper Rui really knows how to drive his boat (the ride alone was great fun) and to be at the right spot at the right...

We've booked a one week whale watching package end of march/ beginning of april. The pico sport team was caring, supportive and excellent. I've read the partially very negative ratings of other people and I can't believe that they have dealt with the same persons at pico sport. In summary: excellent team, very good lodging and an unforgettable experience.

We spent 2 days with Pico Sports for snorkeling, whale watching and diving. Eduardo and his team made sure our experience was memorable. Their skipper, deckhand and spotter did a great job at locating numerous dolphins and whales on our outing and the dolphin snorkeling was an experience our kids will not forget soon. Will definitely try to go out... More

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.
