Like a BBC WILD show!

Today we saw Sperm whales, Fin and Blue whales. While each species gave us amazing sights it was the blue whales that delivered a special show!

A good organized dive centre. We had a little problem with the weather but can't blame them for that :) The only thing i missed was proper boxer to store the equipment in, besides that everything was top notch.

Great stay on Pico with seven days of diving; with sharks, on the Princess Alice seamount and local dives. We contacted CW Azores well before our visit, and customized the trip to the type of diving we wanted to do, too which they were very accommodating. Upon arrival the whole operation was friendly and efficient, and the diving was superb.... More

Just got back from an amazing 10 day trip to Pico with a group of 7 experienced UK divers organised and delivered by Dania and her team at CW Azores. We completed a total of 11 dives with them - 2 x Princess Alice Banks trips to see Mobula, 3 x dives with Blue sharks, and 4 x local dives... More

We have spent a splendid time at the Island of Pico. Our whole stay has been perfectly organized and completely tailor made by CW Azores. As passionate divers and nature enthusiasts we have felt always in good hands and all our (partially very spontaneous) demands have been treated to our utmost satisfactions by all of the CW Azores team members...

We booked CW Azores for an Advanced Dive Course. On arrival, we met with João, our instructor. A really fun guy, who takes safety as the first priority. We had an extremely relaxed and fun time and eventually made our Advanced PADI Certificate. On top, we also booked a day of Dolphin Swimming. We can't remember the guys their names,... More

I am on a family holiday on Pico and decided to do a shark dive with CW Azores. I did a "check dive" to ensure I was able to do dive safely (I am a certified Divemaster) for €45 and paid €170 for the shark dive itself. For the shark dive we headed out about 20 minutes from the island... More

cwazores, Manager at CW Azores, responded to this review

Dear reviewer, This is very confusing for me. Here are the facts: you emailed us right after your unsuccessful shark dive asking if you could get contact information for the owner of CW Azores. At that time I was already getting in touch with you to let you know that, after examining the situation, my decision was to refund the... More

We took the snorkel with dolphins-tour. First a briefing with one of the representatives of CW Azores, and then getting into the wet suits. The gear was not new, but felt clean and it was OK. After that we were on the boat for about 2 hours. It took about 30-40 min to find a group of dolphins. We were... More

CW Azores was fun, educational, and relaxed. My girlfriend and I received a thorough briefing before setting out on boat about the marine life in the Azores (in English). Many other languages were also spoken. The briefing went into great depth and our guides answered all of our questions. Most seemed to be research students or career divers. We were... More

My husband and I did 2 dives, a whale watching trip and a swim with dolphins trip with CW Azores. All of the staff were really friendly and enthusiastic about the tours and had the balance spot on between having fun whilst operating safely. A special thanks to Stefano for the dive trips and for the skippers on all of... More
