Our guide and skipper were knowledgeable and excited to find animals for us to view. Their enthusiasm and love for their jobs was obvious. We saw a whale, a turtle, and hundreds of dolphins. Highly recommend Terra Azul if you want to go whale watching!

The tour took 4 instead of the foreseen 3 hours because the motivatie guide took us further in sea so we could observe some sperm whales. Unique experience!
