“Great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

Prepare yourself for a great time. The tour operators are professional and courteous. We managed to see six whales and tones of dolphins when we went out. The great thing was if we didn't see any whales or dolphins in the three hours we were out at sea we'd receive our money back or a free ride at another date. Loved it!

“Whale of a time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We took the Futourismo catamaran. Inflatable looked a bit too energetic! Three hour round trip. Saw Sperm whales, pilot whales, common dolphin and bottlenosed dolphins. The crew were great. Money back or trip rebooked if nothing seen - which seems unlikely. Great fun and highly recommended.

“Proffesional and Efficient Whale Watching Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

We went out three times with Futurismo and each time had amazing encounters with different whales and dolphins.

We felt at all times safe and thought the trips entirely worth what we paid for them.

“Excellent Customer Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

I was travelling alone and was on Sao Miguel Island for several days in June 2012.

The weather was not good and made enquiries with Fururismo about whalewatching and swimming with dolphins. There guidance advice was excellent and so was their communication whether it was face-to-face late in the day at their booth/office on the ocean front or by mobile phone or text.

I will be returning to the Azores and will use their services again..

Highly recommended
