Went twice. Whales and dolphins are wild creatures and so seeing them can't be guaranteed, so two trips seemed like a good idea. First trip we were lucky and saw two species of dolphin, four adult sperm whales and one baby. Only thing that spoilt the trip were selfish people at the front of the boat who couldn't stay sitting... More

Thanks to Miguel and the Tera Azul team for a fantastic week in the Azores. We went as part of a University of Wolverhampton Wildlife Conservation field course and the assistance we got and the views we had were brilliant. They went that extra mile to make us feel welcome The boat rides alone were exhilarating, but when you add-in... More

We have just returned from three weeks in the Azores and Lisbon. Whilst in Sao Miguel, we went out three times with Terra Azul out of Vila Franco. Their boats are RIB's which makes for a great ride. I was impressed how they followed the whale watching code - their interest in and care for the animals is obvious. The... More

This was my first whale watching experience. I found the guide Stephanie to be extremely knowledgeable and informative. We saw Common Dolphins and a Sperm Whale which was an exhilarating experience. The skip, Tiago, was very good and was extremely safe when the Dolphins were coming near the boat - he demonstrated a high level of experience and regard for... More

I went on a whale watching trip with this company with my classmates as part of a university field visit to Sao Miguel and I have to say it was the highlight of my trip. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and seem to put the interests of the animals above that of the visitors which is refreshing to see. I... More

We booked three trips with Terra Azul and enjoyed every one. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable and helped make for a very memorable experience. They followed the whale watching code closely throughout. Each day we were lucky enough to see something special and during the week saw Fin Whales, Pilot Whales, Risso's Dolphins, Bottle Nosed Dolphins and, our favourites,... More
