Had a fantastic time swimming with wild dolphins today, an amazing experience to remember forever, getting within touching distance of the dolphins. The excellent guides accompanying us really added to the day helping us enjoy our time without disturbing the dolphins and I would recommend an activity like this to anyone willing to have a go!

An excellent trip where we saw 3 species of dolphins really close to the boat. There is a lovely cafe beside the marina and a local bakery opposite that sold the most delicious pastries. Would recommend booking in advance.

A well organised, environmentally sensitive tour. 2.5hrs, saw Sperm Whale and two types of dolphin. Highly recommended. Parking is free, a bar is opposite to wait in. Green Tea served afterwards a nice touch.

We went out twice with Terra Azul and were really lucky to see a sperm whale on each day. We also saw 4 different types of dolphins swimming and jumping around our speedboat. With only 20 participants you get the feeling that you are on an adventure and not just another trip with the masses of tourists. I can difinitely... More

I will neves forget this day. Terra Azul is very well organized and professional. I have seen 3 different kinds of dolphins and turtles. It was amazing being in a semi-rigid and the dolphins swimming with us. I did not see whales unfortunally. It is an experience that everybody must do once in a life time. It is better to... More

We went on two trips with Terra Azul; dolphin and whale watching then swimming with wild dolphins a few days later. Both fabulous, and the swimming with dolphins was one of those 'life moments' - magical and a bit overwhelming for me! Jake from the top class Archipelago Choice booked the whale watching trip for us (one of my main... More

I did several boat trips with Terra Azul to watch whales and swim with dolphins - the snorkelling with dolphins trip was probably my favourite experience ever - they were swimming all around and one swam next to me looking me in the eye. I've swum with tame dolphins before but this is so much better.... The team are very... More

Terra Azulejo are superb. They really care about the whales and dolphins and are really enthusiastic about everything on their trips. They go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy the trip and are really flexible about everything that they do. Fabulous - they made our trip an experience of a lifetime.

Terra Azul gave me and my family an amazing opportunity to see the real Atlantic Ocean life. We saw many wild animals in the ocean, like dolphins or cachalots. It was pretty amazing time. The team of Terra Azul is really helpful and professional. They told a lot of interesting information about animals and other things. Thank you a lot... More
