          Must-do tour!
          Marina is an extraordinarily warm person, and a wonderful guide around her native island. I highly recommend this tour, and don’t hesitate to go with children, I was there with my mom and three small daughters, and it was all well adapted (car seats in the car). Thanks again, Marina!

          The perfect tour of Terceira
          We were lucky enough to have the tour to ourselves with Marina! The tour itself was comprehensive, fascinating and entertaining! We ended up seeing almost the entire island (Monte Brasil, Praia da Vitoria, São Sebastião for lunch, Miradouro da Serra do Cume, Biscoitos and more. Overall the tour was exceptionally good value (delicious lunch at Os Moinhos as well as tickets for Algar do Carvão included in the price) and would easily recommend for anyone visiting Terceira.

          Beautiful Hike
          We did this as well as the caves tour. The sites and views here will make your jaw drop! Many thanks to Joaquim for his skillful, knowledgable guidance as a tour guide. Without him, we would not only be lost in the wilderness, but we wouldn't have been able to appreciate many hidden special spots and nuances of this beautiful place. As a local, he guided and educated us about things that would be impossible to find/appreciate otherwise. I highly recommend this company and Joaquim in particular; I'm sending my own family members to hopefully get guided by him because we had such a fun and safe experience! Ask him about his expertise in sports psychology! Thank you Picos de Adventura and Joaquim for such a wonderful trip!

          No whales, just dolphins
          The staff is friendly. Our boat left 30 minutes late because the morning tour took longer whale watching. Our guide worked very hard communicating with the hilltop whale watcher to try and find us whales. We had no luck on our July 16 11:30 am four. We were told it’s better to go in the morning. We did see many dolphins. It is a 45 minute ride out with bumps along the way. If you are prone to sea sickness-DO NOT GO:). If you are large, it will be difficult to fit in the seats. You are straddled on a seat like riding a horse for the 3 hours. There is a restroom by the office to use before you depart. We brought a small backpack on board with snacks and water. They give you a raincoat to wear. We got slashed just a little bit. Overall, it was fun.

          Fun snorkeling!
          Snorkeling was really nice with Jose and Juan. Jose have a lot of information when we were guided around the coast. He was very friendly and in a very authentic way very enthusiastic. We saw beautiful grutto’s and had a nice moment snorkeling… and if you like wind in your hair and waves and some fun, then the boat ride itself is part of the package as well!

          Great day tour of Terceira
          Terceira is a beautiful island and Joaquim was a fantastic guide to explore all it has to offer. He was knowledgable and passionate about the island. I was impressed by the landscape and history at every turn - from our walking tour of Angra do Heroísmo, to the Serra do Cume viewpoint over the agricultural patchwork of the island. I highly recommend Pico de Aventura as your tour company when visiting!

          There is something very special about Terceira, besides cheese and cows!
          Spent three days exploring Terceira with Joaquim Pires from Picos de Aventura - covered the small island - had fantastic days discovering this lush green land. My guide was exceptional in knowledge, historical facts ,as well as explaining the local cultural traditions. Have recommended to friends, acquaintances already.

          We saw 3 different types of Dolphin, a Sei whale and a blue shark, great to be out on the Sea for 3 hours in the sunshine, it may seem expensive, but if you like wildlife, give it a go, worth every penny.

          Highly recommended
          I like that they do not over pack there boat. I noticed that other whale watching tours from other company’s packed 20 people on there boat. We only had 9 passengers on ours. Also, the biologist with the company was very knowledgeable and friendly. She answered all of our questions and gave us tons on information about the species we saw. We saw many sperm whales, beak whales (which are a rare site), a blue shark, and of course tons on Portuguese man-o-war. Honestly, I would have booked another tour with them the very next day if I wasn’t leaving!

          Great, friendly, professional with care for the animals.
          We were a family of four. Parents with two teenage boys. We did three trips with this company on Terceira. Swimming with dolphins, islets cruise and whale watching, all trips were on a Rib. Swimming with dolphins we were the only people on it. The company provided all the equipment, and found dolphins. They were respectful to the dolphins whilst trying to provide opportunities for us to enter the water. When a Pod weren't interested in having humans in the water the crew left them and found another pod. The islet cruise was as described, but when they heard of a dolphin pod, they asked whether we wanted to see them, so extended the cruise so we could go and see them. The whale watching was superb. There was a briefing from the Marine biologist, who also gave a commentary throughout the trip. The 'rules' of these trips were respected and we saw two different breeds of whale, a sea turtle that the biologist had not seen before and at least two different breeds of dolphin. A great, friendly, professional company, who provided value for money.

          Amazing Dalphins and Sperm Whale
          Me and my husband went on dalphins and whale watching. Ww went with Speedboat that is really fast and close to the sea, so not for those who fill sick or afraid od speed. The crew was the best, kind and helpfull, we had Marine Biologist Maria with great knowledge so we learn a lot. We saw several group od dalphins and a sperm whale twice! It was an amazing experiance!
