Was Referred captain Marco by the owner of our accomodations. Contacted him prior to our trip thru email and arranged to have him show us around the coastline of Flores and take us over to the island of Corvo for the afternoon to hike. He communicated through email and text well. Spoke both English and Portugese fluently as well as knew the area well. We thoroughly enjoyed our caves then as he took us both to and from Corvo we sited a large group of dolphins. He showed us they would follow the boat once they saw us and was able to have them swim along both sides of the boat as we sailed through. We have done a lot of travelling but have not experienced something as amazing as this. I had also indicated that we planned on hiking at Corvo and so he also lined up a local cab driver to meet us to take us up to the top of the caldeira, without me even asking. This worked out perfect, since there are only 400 residence on the island and it was off season so we would have had a tough time finding a cab on our own I think. Even while hiking, I was able to reach him by cell phone to let him know we were going to be late returning to the boat so he waited for us. Made the whole day completely stress free. Excellent way to see Flores and Corvo. One of the best day trips we have had in all of our travels and was voted by our family as their favorite part of our trip of the Azore Islands. Highly recommend booking a day trip with captain Marco whether you just wanted to see the Flores caves and waterfalls, snorkel or scuba dive or go across to hike the beautiful island of Corvo. Was the most memorable part of our trip.

Marco was amazing! Not only did he take us to the island of Corvo, he showed us the caves and waterfalls along Flores before we went to Corvo. It was so incredibly beautiful!! I loved every minute of my experience!

We went with Marco to Corvo Island. The sea was a bit rough but Marco showed us very beautiful places along the coast of Flores and the entry of some caves. The trip to Corvo and visiting the volcano was great. Very recommendable to go with him!!

We had a very beautiful and exciting zodiac trip from Flores to Corvo! Marco is very professional, carring, and reassuring regarding sailing. He will show you the best caves on Flores coast and, if you're lucky, some dolphins offshore (amazing!). We definitly recommand this excursion with Marco !

Marco drives a small rubber boat (no more than 10 people): The view of the island’s waterfalls end of the coast from the sea is wonderful. The trip into open sea is very adventurous in case of wind (i.e. almost always) and also very very wet. Always carry with you a dry change of clothes for when you arrive to Corvo because despite the waterproof jackets provided it’s probable you’ll get wet to the bone. Also be aware to consider the weather in Corvo: we surely didn’t leave Flores on the most sunny day, but the weather in Corvo was so cloudy that even taxies refused to drive up to the crater.
