We saw dolphins so close you could almost touch them, whales and even sea turtles swimming by. The crew was very professional and made the trip fun and informative for everyone. This was really a great day, and one that... More

I went whale watching with my parents with Futurismo while in the Azores and saw plenty of Bottle nose dolphins, Common dolphins and even a couple of Blue Whales (the biggest animals in history - even bigger than any dinosaur as we learnt by the Futurismo staff). Highly recommend. You should also look at their volcano day and half-day trips.

Really recommend this company. These guys really know what they are doing and they will do their very best to spot the whales and dolphins! The two “biólogos” are really nice and professionals. During out trip we spotted three different types of dolphins, three "cachalotes" and one sea turtle. It was an amazing experience. Thank you guys!

From the briefing to the end the Futurismo team leave you in no doubt that they are extremely knowledgeable, dedicated experts who are providing you with a lot more than a basic whale watching tourist excursion. We enjoyed a fantastic half day and saw Fin Whales, Hump Back, Rissos and Bottlenose dolphins.Highly Recommended.

I went out for a whale and dolphin watching and had an amazing time with Futurismo. The biologists were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, our captain was a fun guy, with so many stories to tell.
