    Memorable parts? Difficult to decide. Seeing so many whales and dolphins, the insight that the leader (Lisa) imparted in describing their behaviour, the beauty of Faial island. Tips? Stay relaxed and enjoy the experience and learn from the tour leader. Local benefits? Yes, right from the extensive briefing information received before the tour to seeing some of the oceanic problems at first hand. This then gets imparted to the local community encouraging them to act responsibly. Overall... (more)Roger Hull

    Memorable parts? The whale and dolphin watching trips - the full day marine biologist trip on the RIB was the best of all of the trips. Tips? The trips on the RIB boats were much better than on the catamaran as the boat is much smaller and closer to the water so you get closer to the animals. Local benefits? Yes Overall rating? It was fantastic - a brilliant family holiday with two children (6 and 9) (more)Paul Purslow

    Swimming with dolphins. On our trip we spotted a large pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins (our guide estimated 500) and we slipped into the water and swam with them. They were everywhere and you could hear their clicking a high pitched whistling as well as almost being able to touch them they were so close. (more)Roy White

    The highlight was the blue whales. A superb experience, and we would have changed hardly anything once we were there, although we had big problems with the flights both ways. (more)Wendy Cadman
    Actually getting to see the whales as described - Blue, Fin, Sperm and Sei, as well as 3 different types of dolphins. Lisa is so experienced and enthusiastic, and the skipper of the boat was very skilled too. (more)Swee-Im Ung
    Informative, even as to the exact moment to click the camera shutter, skilled in being in the right place at the right time, positioning the boat for everyone's advantage, including the whale's, knowing the whales' routines, and even helping organise the non-water days. (more)Jean Tuck

    I enjoyed it very much. It was all very interesting and I learned a lot. The food was exceptionally good. The people we met were all charming. The amount of whale watching and other activities was just right. (more)Jo Fallon

    Memorable parts? Seeing the whales at close quarters, particularly a mother and calf on our firs day at sea. Tips? If there is any possibility you might be seasick take medication before you go out to sea. On all three days I went out at least one person was sick and so was unable to enjoy the whale watching. Local benefits? Yes. The whale watching trips were very respectful of the wildlife, and were also used to record information about the local whale population. We were... (more)Margaret Woskett

    The anticipation and then the excitement of actually seeing the sperm and pilot whales that honoured us with their presence! (more)Vivian Munn
    It fully lived up to our expectations.....Seeing a group of four sperm whales resting together on the surface just in front of the boat (more)Siobhan Chapman
    We were on the cat and a huge gasp went up from everyone on board; a fin whale had swum in front of the boat and opened its mouth out of the water to feed. It was only a split second but that sight is engraved on my memory. My partner didn't see it, he was looking the other way at the time. (more)Margaret Merris
