Unquestionably one of the most exciting Portugual adventures

Start your journey with a short, informative briefing introducing you to whales, dolphins, and local wildlife species. You will learn about their natural habitat, communication, migration, behavioral patterns, and also your onboard safety. Follow your guide and Skipper to board your assigned Zodiac boat, and head out to sea. With the help of Lookout, locate your friends and communicate via VHF, in order to get directions to where you will need to travel, initially at a high speed.

While marine wildlife can be observed year long, there are over 25 cetacean species that you will come across. Try to spot the resident Sperm Whales and other species on this ride! As you approach your friends carefully, snap as many shots as you can to preserve this memory. Upon your return, stop at the Protected Nature Reserve of Princess Ring Islet of Vila Franca do Campo to get a close look at the volcanic marvel and resident wildlife. This is definitely a trip of a lifetime!
