You will meet us at the Marina of Vila Franca do Campo for check-in at the designated time.
The journey starts on schedule with a short briefing introducing you to local marine species and their habitat, and safety onboard.
You will then follow your guide to your Zodiac boat, now free to see Whales, Dolphins, Birds and marine wildlife, to cruise the beautiful coastline, for better views to the island’s volcanoes, to discover hidden places, to explore secluded beaches, to snorkel the island’s coastal marine fauna and flora, or... Let us know what you'd like to do!
Marine Wildlife can be observed yearlong. Sperm Whales are resident with 3 additional cetacean species, and marine biodiversity is abundant. From March to June it is the passing of many species of the migratory Baleen Whale giants. Exclusively between June and September it is possible to swim with any of 4 different species of Dolphins!
Our lookout high inland will assist the Skipper in finding wildlife and provide directions via VHF Radio. A knowledgeable Wildlife Guide is there to keep you informed, and ensure the best environmental and conservation standards on tour.
The duration of the trip is approximately 3 hours, after which the boat will need to be back at the Marina.
