Reviews for Azores whale holiday, Blue Whale bonanza


review 7 Sep 2014

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The boat trips out to see the whales. There were so many different types including dolphins. We actually saw 16 blue whales in one day.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

You are out at sea for 7 hours so make sure you take some sea sickness medication with you just in case. If you don't know that you suffer from sea sickness (like me) then take some anyway as seven hours is a long time to be feeling ill. Also I would recommend that on the free days to book one or both (tour of Pico) of the island jeep tours. The guides are excellent and take you to places you would never find if you were hiring a car.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes the boat operator was local and also we took tours run by local people and bought things in the local shops. Also part of the cost of the holiday funds the local whale and dolphin conservation and research group.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
