This was a great experience, Espaco Talassa have concern for the environment at the forefront of their trips and this was reinforced by an interesting pre trip talk and slides. The day we'd booked for our trip was the greyest during our whole stay with low cloud down to the sea so the whale lookouts had no chance of seeing any - as a result we were warned that we might not see any on the trip and were given option to postpone. However, using sound equipment and as they had seen whales that morning, we set out and were rewarded by around 10 sperm whales plus loads of dolphins on the way out - fabulous! What amazing creatures, I could never tire of watching them. Also had the added bonus of seeing a loggerhead turtle which got away before they could catch it to tag it to monitor its travels. We were out for around three hours, great fun with a professional and knowledgeable team, it was a very rewarding trip. The grey weather and sea actually added to the atmosphere. Would recommend you either book a trip in advance or early on in your stay as demand was high and if you're only on Pico for a few days, you might miss out. We were recommended to book with Espaco Talassa by Archipelago Choice (the best holiday company to travel to Azores with in my opinion!) and so glad we did - thank you!
