Reviews for Azores holiday watching whales and dolphins


review 15 Jun 2018

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

Seeing the whales at close quarters, particularly a mother and calf on our firs day at sea.

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

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.

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

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 also taken out to local restaurants that benefitted the local economy.

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

It met my expectations and was really enjoyable. I saw lots of whales. I only wish the weather had been better, as there was high winds and rain, and only one sunny day.
