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

This review is written in comparison to what i experienced at other dive centers in the Azores. I did only 2 last minute dives, but i can see that there are interesting dive sites. From my experience, i found it to have high cost for the quality: 45€/dive + 36€ for gear rental for 2 dives, insurance not included. So... More

In one week, 9 trips out to sea in fast RIBs, bouncing across the waves. This was challenging physically when it was rough. But, was it worth it? Oh yes! Brief views of Fin Whales, and several Sperm Whales. But on one magic day we saw 3 species of Dolphin - Common, Bottlenose and entertaining Risso's. There was one pod... More

CW Azores provides excellent whale watching. After having been to Iceland (no luck, no whales) and Argentina (Peninsula Valdes), this has been the best place. We went out 4 times and saw at least 2 or 3 species each time. We saw blue whales, fin whales, false orcas (like normal orcas but without white spots), sperm whales, stripped dolphins and... More

We were three friends staying a week at Pico and doing a lot of diving as well as whale watching with CW Azores. The staff super friendly and professional but the prices are quite high. We went for 10 normal dives, 1 shark dive and 1 whale watching but received no discount from standard prices despite providing quite a lot... More

The stuff was friendly, the boss not really and the tours were o.k. All was for me too money oriented, that means, a lot of people on each on the tours we did. I still keep in mind what the boss promised: "We will do a privat tour just for you". - And then they didn't and as we learnt... More

Have just arrived back from one of the best holidays I've had, it was a beautiful island with lovely friendly people and fantastic fun going out to sea on a rib whale watching we saw whales and dolphins every day plus sea turtles. The holiday company we went with was Steppes Travel.
