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

Blue Whale tour in the Azores
Excellent....Seeing the ocean giants so close it was amazing (more)Sarah Grandy
Amazing observations of the Cetaceans (more)Christiana Lorenz
The most memorable parts were: Crystal blue seas and skies, seeing so many whales and dolphins in their natural habitat and on their own terms, with human beings having to play second fiddle for a change, the passion, knowledge and genuine love of their work shown by all the guides, the group bonding that derives from a common shared experience.

Swimming with wild dolphins in the Azores
We loved it so much we are going to do it again. It's a week of being somewhere completely amazing. peaceful and different - underwater - and everyone and everything helped us to concentrate on that and have a terrific time. (more)Lynda Bailey
Just four words, really: out of this world. Oh - and unforgettable....The first time the dolphins came close to us in the water: being able to hear the clicks and squeaks as they sussed us out, seeing the bubbles they blew at us and watching them look us in the eye as they shimmied past. (more)Lisa Newman
Superb. All I had hoped and more....it was good to be somewhere relatively free of tourism, and with a company which proactively thinks about limiting impact on the natural life and the environment...this philosophy helped make the experience special. (more)Suzie Palmer
From £580 excluding flights
Whale watching in the Azores

From £495 - £685 excluding flights
Azores beach accommodation, Portugal
Memorable parts? The beautiful view from our cabin, whale watching and walking around the Caldeira of the central volcano. Tips? We went with two small children and had a super time. They loved the field of goats next to us, being able to run around our cabin and the beach. Local benefits? Yes. We recycled and local people were employed in the upkeep of the accommodation. Overall rating? Excellent. Beautiful and quiet island. A real gem. The accommodation was wonderful. (more)Nicola goddard
From €350 - €1095 per accommodation per week
Azores holiday cottage, Portugal
Memorable parts? The old volcano. Tips? Local benefits? Not really, nothing was environmentally friendly about the place and it was owned and managed by expats. Overall rating? Really relaxing and enjoyable. (more)Billie Murdoch
From €400 - €450 per accommodation per week
Azores whale and dolphin watching holiday
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. I took a Kwell, used travel bands and chewed ginger gum and I was fine. I might have been fine without all that - I'll never know. Take clothes for all weathers. Local benefits? Yes, tourism is a very... (more)Jo Fallon

Sao Miguel rural accommodation in the Azores
Memorable parts? We went to Sao Miguel with the intention of walking some of the many trails around the island. Lagoa di fogo was probably the most interesting and memorable of the lakes and the hot springs in the ocean at ponta ferraria the most exciting. The whole island is beautiful, the hot springs are amazing, the people very friendly and the food available to buy was excellent quality and good value. Tips? I would love to go to Sao Miguel again and would definitely stay at... (more)jane sutherland
