Azores Whale Watching & Islet Boat Tour

172 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.

We visit in August 2020 during the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic. The visit is self-guided, which is good. You can see the several greenhouses with different stages of the pineapple growth (all clearly marked) and they give you a leaflet explaining all details. The greenhouses and area you visit is the oldest part of the plantation which is also good, since you have a the feeling you travel in time. There is a souvenir shop, with limit capacity restrictions. All staff is genuinely nice. There is a esplanade service and tables to eat outside, that has a great pineapple cake and a superb pineapple fresh juice (too die for!!!). All very clean and safe, you have to wear a mask.

We did this tour through P&O Cruises during our transatlantic voyage on Arcadia! This tour was a half day tour of around 3.5 hours, starting with a tour of the island by coach, then ascending to the top of the mountain to see the fire lakes and then finishing at the pineapple plantation where they grow a unique type of pineapple - AKA tiny pineapples! It was an enjoyable morning tour, and the scenery on a clear day is out of this world! The pineapple plantation was also interesting, however I think to charge £62 each to take us to the top of a mountain and then see some little pineapples is verging on extortion! I’d recommend doing the tour, but because of the price it’s one of those experiences I probably won’t repeat.

It was my first time visiting a pineapple plantation. It was very interesting to get to know about all the process. There’s a shop inside with lovely staff, and we’ve been offered to try ananas licor. Loved it!

Have read that one of the best produce to try is pineapples in Ponta Delgada. At the end of our private tour, we were brought here by our guides. I was excited that we finally got to try some. After strolling through the green houses and the grounds, we found the little gift shop and had to ask about fresh pineapples. Only then that they went to the back and brought out the cut-up pineapple pieces in a cup, 4E each and the pineapple juice was 3E a cup. I was disappointed at how sour both were and with that expensive price tag. It was nice to see the place but you can skip the pineapple.

We have visited the plantation several times over in the past few years. Fortunately the admission is free- a plus, unfortunately, the gift shop has turned into an overpriced "artisan" market, that neglects to emphasize the plantation. In fact, it seems to neglect its product leaving the customers to search around to find any pineapple related products. In addition, it would be beneficial for this company to provide samples of the actual pineapple. Considering the immense cost of these, albeit delicious pineapples, folks are less apt to buy because they aren't sure of the taste and if it is justified by the price. Of course that is just my "oipinaple" :)
