We were three friends staying a week at Pico and doing a lot of diving as well as whale watching with CW Azores. The staff super friendly and professional but the prices are quite high. We went for 10 normal dives, 1 shark dive and 1 whale watching but received no discount from standard prices despite providing quite a lot... More

The stuff was friendly, the boss not really and the tours were o.k. All was for me too money oriented, that means, a lot of people on each on the tours we did. I still keep in mind what the boss promised: "We will do a privat tour just for you". - And then they didn't and as we learnt... More

Have just arrived back from one of the best holidays I've had, it was a beautiful island with lovely friendly people and fantastic fun going out to sea on a rib whale watching we saw whales and dolphins every day plus sea turtles. The holiday company we went with was Steppes Travel.

Very friendly reception, briefing in various languages. Enthusiastic guys that seem to really enjoy what they are doing. Boat looked very well maintained and what I found refreshing: they asked for only a small deposit and payment was after return! So we didn't feel like 'money providers'. We were extremely lucky: they found a huge group of sperm whales and... More

Great trip!!!!! Swimming with the dolphins was absolutely incredible!!! At first both slippers said everyone would get 1 or 2 dives in the water but everyone got at least 4! The skippers were some of the funniest and kind people I've ever met and I will definitely be returning as soon as I can!!

We have been here for a week now and will stay another. So far all our expectations are met, and more. Very well organized dive-base, super-enthousiastic guides and skippers, great service, and excellent diving with sharks and mobula's, swimming with dolphins and whale watching make this a fantastic holiday. We asked to change accomodations once we arrived at our originally... More

We booked a shark diving package with this company for the end of July 2013. Like other reviewers we also had some issues (particularly with whale watching lodge - our stay coincided with the town’s annual festival so the choice of accommodation available was limited) but CW could not have been more efficient, professional or helpful in immediately addressing them...

We spent June 30 to July 5, 2013 on Pico and had CW Azores arrange for a whale watching trip, a swim with the dolphins, and guide to climb Mt Pico, and a rental car for a day trip to Faial Island. The guides for the boat rides to see the whales and swim with the dolphins were wonderful. They... More
