azores whale watching & islet boat tour
Meet your English guide at the Marina of Vila Franca do Campo for check-in, at the specified time.
Start the journey with a short informative briefing introducing to Cetacean, (Whales and Dolphins) local species, their natural habitat, communication, migration, behavioural patterns, and onboard safety.
Follow the guide and skipper to board their designated boat, and go out to sea. The lookout high inland will then locate your friends, and provide directions via VHF Radio to where the boat will travel - initially at high speed. Marine Wildlife can be observed yearlong. Sperm Whales are resident alongside 3 additional cetacean species and abundant marine biodiversity. While approaching your friends carefully, your guide will keep you informed, collect data and photography for research, and is always available throughout the tour to provide answers to any specific questions - feel free to ask.
Upon return to the Marina, the boat will tour around the Princess Ring Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, for a close look at the volcanic marvel and resident wildlife.
