Description

The waters off the coast of Horta are home to some of the ocean's most magnificent creatures. Enjoy a day spent on the sparkling blue sea watching for whales and dolphins displaying their majesty just off the island's southern coast.

Begin your experience on land, with a detailed explanation of the species usually seen on the tour, as well as a few safety procedures. Board a comfortable whale-watching vessel and drift peacefully out onto the crystalline water, admiring the black rocks, green hills, and soaring birds that populate the island's coast.

Attentive spotters on your boat keep an eye out for whales and dolphins, directing your attention to their blowhole sprays and tail flaps. Marvel at these jubilant creatures breaching the surface, possibly even approaching your boat. Species you might see include sperm, fin, and blue whales, as well as bottlenose and spotted dolphins.

In addition to whales and dolphins, your trip may reward you with sights of turtles, sunfish, and schools of tuna swimming through the beautiful sea around your boat. Expert commentary from an onboard marine biologist makes your experience informative and educational from beginning to end.
