About Terra do Pico
We are a new and small company located in Mosteiros, Sao Miguel - Azores. We are located on the northwestern part of the island, where whale hunting was practiced more than 30 years ago. Now they are back in great numbers! It is a zone carved by the sea and we have the pleasure to take you out to sea and explore the immense life, the landscapes, the coast and the marine giants, the whales, who honor us with their presence. And we can still count on the great sunset marked by the islets of Mosteiros that stand in this beautiful landscape. Come and explore with us!

We spent a good long time looking for sightings of whales and dolphins. Even though we were off-season, we still managed to spot an adult and young sperm whale and countless dolphins doing what they do best....play.
