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 have been many times with Terra do Pico on sea and saw nearly every time whales and dolphins, so also this time. We love the friendly and experienced crew and Beatrix with her big knowledge about these phastinating creatures. WE COME BACK FOR SURE!

We are happy to have booked our whale watching tour with Picco. Small provider on a corner of the island. Great rubber dinghy so that we were very close to the animals. Great communication beforehand. Friendly and young team. Many thanks for everything.

Amazing staff provided us a magic experience, and respectful for the animals. The fact that the boat was not huge, neither overcrowded, allowed us to observe the cetaceans without human noise. The day we went, we were able to watch sperm whales and dolphins.

On our trip we were lucky enough to spot several sperm whales and were able to watch a mother teach her calf how to deep dive. They took turns showing us their beautiful fin! Beatriz was an excellent guide, she told us many details about the whales we saw. Also, we very much appreciated the sustainable and cautious way they conduct these tours - their top priority is clearly the well-being of the animals.
