    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

    Swimming with wild dolphins in the clear blue sea was just amazing! The rib trips were well organised and friendly, and the sea-life co-operated! truly fantastic. The jeep trip to the volcanic springs was also really well worth doing. (more)Lois Pierce-Jones

    Memorable parts? Seeing a blue whale for the first time in my life Tips? Bring warm clothes for sea even in May it is quite chilly. Sea sickness pills: even if you are not sensitive some rough day at sea it may bring extra comfort. I did not bring but it is easy and cheap to buy at a pharmacy in Horta. Local benefits? I hope it will help for the conservation and understanding better local populations of whales Overall rating? This was a great experience, Tiago and... (more)Sylvain Masse

    Im not normally inclined to book group holidays because I’m not really the sociable kind although in fulfilling my wife’s long held dream to go Whale Watching I had little choice given how everything is structured. After some research I decided the Azores was the place to go therefore I booked one weeks holiday through Amanda finally settling on Pico Island as the destination. Whale researcher Rui is the man on the ground working full time gathering data about the Azorean whales in order to collaborate... (more)Richard Christie

    Memorable parts? All of it really but maybe the trips were the standout.. exceptionally good. Great whale and dolphin viewing, and the land tours were very interesting. Tips? Hire a car for the day and explore the spectacular wilderness coastline and stunning waterfalls. Local benefits? 2 out of 3 yes. Not sure flying 3.50 mins reduced environmental impact, but the development of tourism is needed in this part of the world, to ensure the young people have a future. Overall... (more)Graham Sadler

    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

    Memorable parts? The tours around the island were all brilliant but the whalewatching was unbelievably wonderful; really emotional and very special. But all the activities and tours were excellent; the three partners you chose were each really good; they knew their stuff and were very empathetic and engaging. Tips? Go!! The Azores were wonderful. Your choice of partners made it extra special - we appreciated being in our own family group and being looked after by biologists and environmentalists... (more)Fiona Godwin-Brown

    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
