Q: Is it possible to see whales and dolphins on every tour?
R: Every tour is a surprise. We are dealing with wildlife. But we offer you a guarantee: If you do not see whales either dolphins, we will arrange a new tour for you, absolutely free.
Q: How do I get to São Miguel?
R: There are flight connections from Lisbon, Porto and other main capitals.
Q: I have back problems but I would love to go on a whale watching. Can I do this tour?
R: Futurismo Azores Whale Watching in Pico Island has only a zodiac boat. This boat is less spacious than the catamarans that we have in São Miguel Island. We do recommend you to have some medical advice before this experience.
Q: I am pregnant and would like to do whale watching. Is it safe?
R: In this situation, we advise the catamarans. The catamarans are more comfortable and stable boats and we do recommend them for pregnant. Please inform us about any medical situation for better advise.

“ EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR OCEAN ACTIVITIES”
“Did half day whale watching and half day swimming with dolphins. Very well organized, good equipment and boats, nice and professional staff. Safety conscious. Marine biologists are part of each activity – knowledgeable, enthusiastic and different languages spoken. Highly recommended.”
