  • Pre-booking online or by phone is highly recommended. If the weather conditions are disappointing, the excursion will not go through. We had booked the whale tour of half a day. Notify 08.45 and depart from the port at 09.00 am. There are waterproof jackets to borrow and you get a life vest that is only blowing up in the eater. That is at last once not in the way. From the port we came first by 3 schools of ordinary dolphins. Then sailed to the north and seen 6 sperm whales! It is spotted on land and the locations of the whales are passed on. The zodiac continues to float quietly at a distance from the animals. Another Nordic Cinvis Gwzien, a Balein whale. We are fat satisfied!

  • Due to the high waves, no tour could take place for more than a week. When it finally started, it went almost perfectly. Radiant sunshine and pleasant wind. Meeting point was 8:40 a.m. at the office in Mosteiros. After a brief safety briefing in the life jackets, we set off on an inflatable boat with ten tourists, a captain and Beatrice as a guide. After only a few minutes, a larger school of dolphins was reached, which briefly appeared everywhere and quickly dived again. The journey to the whales took a little longer, Beatrice had already announced it. The spotters would have found them very far out today. The half-hour ride was accompanied again and again by yellow-billed storm divers, otherwise I could enjoy the magnificent view of Sao Miguel. Despite only "small" waves, the boat occasionally hit the water uncomfortably hard (I was sitting at the front). Finally, we saw six or seven sperm whales, gratefully photographed, and a seiwhale. Shortly before 12 we were back in the harbour. I would do it again and again. Reasonable price for a great experience, Beatrice has given a lot of information about the whales. The boat was small, but looked safe and comfortable according to the conditions. Life jackets and, if necessary, waterproof jackets are provided. I don't know if I really wanted to take young children with me. If so, they should sit in the back, where it was obviously much quieter.
