Good pre-event slide show. We all learned something. The owner fully explained the tour and allowed anyone to back out. We saw whales right away but then for the next 1.5 hours we zig zagged back and forth on the coast. We were not sure why we were doing that - but finally it was explained that we were looking...

We joined two afternoon trips with Espaco Talassa during our 4 day stay on Pico island. This was my third whale watching activity so far, after resident grey whales near Vancouver Island and sperm whales in Norway (20 / 10 years ago). As to Espaco Talassa, I found them to be highly professional and dedicated. What is more, they are... More

We've joined Serge and his Crew due to our Acores vacation in August 2016. It was highly appreciated what Serge and our tour guide Rahel told us Prior leaving the Harbour for Whale Watching and environmental Care and exploring and watching different types of whales, dolphins, turtles, sharks and so on. Excellent tour not regarding that we saw only one... More

We did two 3 hour whale watching tours. They start with a very helpful presentation/ video about Azores, whales, dolphins etc. The team is seriously interested in protecting and showing carefully the nature. It does not feel that they just want to make quick money - like some others boat/ tour companies. They are very open and fair to tourists:... More

Did a tour with them which we enjoyed thoroughly. The information we got was priceless as the guides are very knowledgeable. They are also highly respectful in their treatment of the animals. Small example: We did a tour on another island with a different company and when putting our go pro under water on their tour, we heard a lot... More

We had a great boot trip, covered 57km distance and saw a lot of different whales and dauphins. Besides finding the whales our guides also gave a lot of background information on the spotted animals. And they are also very much involved/committed in preserving nature. So a morning well spent.

Whale watching is not just a business for them - it's a lifestyle and we felt very privileged to be able to enjoy a beautiful afternoon with them. The staff is extremely friendly, honest, and know everything about anything to do with whales. We're really amazed with the depth of knowledge Susana, our guide had! Last but not least the... More

Here I go : an exciting experience, a professional run company, friendly staff and animal friendly tour. The 3-hour whale watching tour was top. After an half hour briefing about what you can expect to see and what not, you receive a lifejacket and raincoat. Then into the boats and off you go. The boats are small and fast, seats... More
