    Very knowledgeable and experienced staff, respective of the animals and nature. We were lucky to see multiple species on our tour.
    Dress for the wind, the speed boats are rather fast.
    And remember, this is the wild, there are no guarantees.

    My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed this day (14/10/22). It was well organised and all questions were answered. Our guide was very knowledgeable and her enthusiasm for seeing the whales and dolphins was catching! Would definitely recommend!

    We had great time at this tour, our guide - Marylee was very informative and took a great care of us. This company takes responsibility for following guidelines and not distressing wild life, which I believe is very important. Take look seriously at their jobs and you can tell they all love and care for animals.
    Great experience with great company, would not go for anybody else for this tour

    Just being out with the Terra Azul team was good experience
    Starting with Stephanie who contacted me to inform of weather change for the day I planned.She fitted us in a day earlier and was able to join this trip.
    Daniel the counter staff was exceptional & helpful as we walked in to enquire a day early about car parking ,trip etc.
    We had video briefing and had insight of the whales before our adventure.
    Thank you to MaryLou and Jose’ for the searching , explanation throughout our journey.We didn’t see large whales however the dolphins put on a show to entertain us. The interaction of the team to us on our lookout was great. They were professionals hoping that we could see the whales. The eye catching view of the island from the Atlantic sea was great and informative explanation from MaryLou how the islands came to be and had an outside trip round the islet before return to shore
    We had lunch & coffee before setting off to the islet literally 10 minutes by ferry boat.
    Had a swim before return to the shore.This part we were on our own .
    Overall a lovely day
