Azores conservation holiday, whales, dolphins and turtles
I'll always remember holding the loggerhead turtle when our scientist tagged him. But when we spotted sperm whales socialising, that was spectacular! (more)Cara Kuipers
The diversity of cetaceans is really high in the area. Imagine where else on earth can you encounter 8 cetacean species (blue whale, fin whale, sperm whale, humpback whale, Cuvier's beak whale, pilot whale, bottlenose dolphin, common dolphin) in 7 boat trips? (more)Patty Tse

Memorable parts? Seeing the whales and dolphins, of course! I also really loved the hot springs. And the botanical gardens.....and the tea plantation.......and the food and the great group and Nunu- what an incredibly knowledgeable guide! Tips? Some people were seasick.
