We booked 2 adults and 2 children on the jeep tour of Sete Cidades and Lagoa Fogo. It was just the four of us in the jeep with our guide Nuno. What a nice guy. Very knowledgeable and passionate about his country, he was fantastic answering all the questions from our kids. I would have quite happily paid more just... More

Great guides on the catamaran boat speaking several languages. On our tour we saw two different kinds of dolphins and unfortunately no whales. Recommend Fururismo also for swimming with wild dolphins.

I couldn't believe it was so easy to watch dolphins in its natural habitat... It really worthes the money... I chose Futurismo over other companies, due to theur Catamaran boat, wich really make feel safe. The staff was very kind and available to answer questions. Really recommend Futurismo as the Dolphin and Whale Watching company in the Azores. Unfortunately I... More

Futurismo's people are great and friendly, and they have a lot of relevant knowledge. Still we were a little dissapointed by the "whale watching" Saw dolphins, that was nice, but a whale blowhole from 300 meters distance was not so exciting.

The whale watching is a must when visiting Sao Miguel. Futurismo is great choice to do that. They seem very professional. On my trip we went with the rubber boat and it was furious but fun. They provided us jackets and life vests. We saw the worlds second biggest whale and three different kinds of dolphins. The tour costs 55... More

Amazing trip, we saw only dolphins that day, no luck with the whales but that's wild life, we can still book another trip for free. The staff is friendly and experienced.

A great afternoon on a well equiped boat and - more important - with very competent and multilingual staff. Although the first ten minutes after leaving the harbour might be a bumpy ride, it was great to be on the open sea; everbody on the lookout for whales... and there they were ! To see a whale preparing for a... More
