Azores Whale Watching & Islet Boat Tour

173 reviews
Set on an Atlantic marine migration route, the Azores are a world-class whale-watching destination. Enjoy a high chance of seeing cetaceans, such as sperm whales and/or dolphins, with the help of biologist guides supported by spotters operating from inland. Your tour is by speedy, easy-to-maneuver RIB boat—lifejackets and waterproof jackets are included—and finishes with a look at the volcanic Islet of Vila Franca do Campo.

I did not bath but the view was amazing. The water seemed nice an de it was booming of people. The drive down the hill was a bit scary but oh so worth it. Will definitely give it a try at my next visit.

The view, the nature, the volcanic trail, and the sea and definitely a must see. The Ferrarias natural pool is hard to get in, there are too much people, the sea current is too strong, you should wear water shoes (the rocks inside the water are sharp), always hold to the ropes that are in the water, so you go when the tide is low. So it is just for people that are not nervous or scared and can in the end relax. We tried to go twice, gave up the first time, because there were too many people, a big crown. And this was in very low (if not empty) tourist season with the COVID-19 pandemic. The second time, it was 9:00 in the morning on a Tuesday, and there were already 10 people there. We went in, the water was not that warm because the sea waves were coming into the pool (although in low tide). Still it is a rare monument of nature, that you should visit.

We visited here in late far on, so most people were leaving. The water was still warm and we managed to get a bite to eat at the local restaurant there.

I arrived at Ponta da Ferraria at about 3.30pm on a Friday afternoon, and found that the water was cold and the waves were choppy. It's a pretty unique experience to stand in a pool at the bottom of a cliff clutching a rope whilst getting battered by waves, but not exactly the relaxing thermal pools I'd imagined! Probably best checking to see when low tide is (which is when the pools are warmest) and timing your visit accordingly.
