Thank you so much captain Jose Fernando Costa and your very professional crew. We were expecting a regular 4-hour tour but you were determined to have us see as many whales as we could and it turned into a 5.5 hour tour and you were great to explain the types of whales we did see.

We had 3 amazing trips with this company this week. We saw sperm, blue, fin & humpback whales as well as dolphins! All 3 trips were different but amazing. This is the only company that captains their own boat, it is a family business with a true azores boat. They are so passionate and respectful of the whales. We witnessed... More

"Must do" when visiting Ponta Delgada and make sure you choose this company. The owner/operator is amazing, gives lots of great info and obviously cares about the whales, the environment and guests. It's a family run business and customer service was excellent. Also - we saw lots of whales and dolphins and it was an amazing day. Make sure you... More

I went with a group of friends and we find it incredible. We could watch several whales, three of them only 30 m away from us. Really good experience. The captain and the crew were very very nice and very professional. I would recomend it.

I expected the whale watching to be a great experience, but spotting six blue whales and fin whale in one day absolutely exceeded my expectations! On the top of that, captain Jose Fernando Costa was a great host on his authentic boat, creating very friendly and adventurous atmosphere and enjoying the day as much as we did! I definitely plan...

I wish we had been able to see more whales and dolphins, but the huge fin whales and far-away blue whale were really a dream come true. Also, the common dolphins swimming under and in front of the ship were really fun! If I ever went to Azores again, I would book two whale watching tours. I could've easily spent... More

We booked our whale watching trip for 5 adults and 3 children this consisted of my wife, our three sons, my mother in law and my parents. Our parents are in their early 60's, me and my wife are...
