7 Nights
FOCUSED ON BALEEN WHALES AND SPERM WHALES IN SÃO MIGUEL ISLAND

Prepare yourself for a full week of intense research and learning about the giant cetaceans of São Miguel Island. In the past years, there have been identified more than 3.000 sperm whales and more than 500 blue whales in the Azores. If you love the marine wildlife and would love to do some whale and dolphin watching in São Miguel Island to discover more about the ecology and social behavior of the baleen whales and sperm whales, this is the perfect package for you.

Futurismo Whale Watching Azores collects data, investigates and studies cetaceans for over a decade. Our main goal is to know more and more about the migration routes, habitats and overall knowledge about the whales of the Azores.

The Azores are known as one of the best destinations in the world for whale and dolphins watching, specially for scientific purposes. Every year we can even see some less sighted species such as beaked whales, orcas, and false killer whales.
