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

I was really surprised on my first trip to Azores. It was a beautiful experience having the oportunity to visite the Cetaceans. Climb the moutain, swim in the natural pools and the beauty of the landscape. The profissionalism of PicoSport on handling our accomodation in a quite and private house allowed us to look foward to come back Last but... More

We spent a week on the lovely Island of Pico and had the misfortune of booking our accommodation and diving with Pico Sport. After being given the run around for several hours and put up for one night in hostel type accommodation which was not what we had booked, we were eventually installed in our "apartment". The two rooms with... More
