Q: When the sea tide is not low can we still bathe in the natural swimming pool?
A: If the sea conditions allow you can still bathe in the natural swimming pool, although the water will not be as hot.
Q: What is the sea water temperature?
A: In summer it reaches 24˚C and in winter is not lower than 16˚C. When the tide is low the water temperature varies between 30ºC and 50ºC, depending how close you are to the volcanic crack.

“DID 4 EXCELLENT TOURS WITH THEM”
“I booked an experience package pre trip which included 2 half day jeep tours, a city tour of Ponta Delgada and half day whale watching. All were fantastic. Walking tour was really informative and great way to start the trip. The jeep tours took us to a lot of the island including hot springs to swim. The whale watching was great, we did see a whale and literally hundreds of dolphins. All of the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable. I’d book with this tour company again in a heart beat.”
“THE PERFECT WAY TO SEE SÃO MIGUEL ISLAND”
“ We booked 4 full days with Futurismo. They were incredible at offering suggestions to help me build my itinerary, and were happy to accommodate my requests so we ended up booking a full day hiking Sete Cidades, a full day Whale & Dolphin Watching in the morning and a Jeep Safari to Lagoa do Fogo in the afternoon, a full day Hiking Faial da Terra and on our last full day we opted for a full day trip to Nordeste.”
