WELCOME
TO OUR EXCITING WORLD
OF DISCOVERY

Imagine being on one of our boats, slicing through the waters of the deep blue Atlantic, the waves glistening with expectation. Suddenly you see a flash and a sleek shape breaks the surface, exploding into view – it’s the fluke of an immense sperm whale –a short distance away! 

You can see its great unblinking eye, curious about you and your fellow explorers. You catch your breath; the whale is massive and yet gentle at the same time. Then its tail smacks the water with a splash, disappearing below in a cloud of spray. 

You’ve never seen anything like this.

 

THE AZORES

Welcome to the heart-pounding world of whale and dolphin watching. You’ve come to the right place for it – the Azores – 9 islands in the middle of the Atlantic and the best place for spotting these glorious undersea creatures. 

This sea-life paradise is rich with an unending flow of marine life like blue whales, bottlenose dolphins, and Risso’s dolphins. Yet another reason this treasured spot is unique – it is one of the most sustainable tourism destinations in the world!

Why Choose
Futurismo

We are the experts in whale watching. How do you know? We were here right at the beginning. Over 30 years ago Futurismo played a key role in transitioning the Azores from hunting whales to enjoying them. 

Over the decades we’ve watched the whales and learned a lot – where the best places and times for spotting them are, their habits, their patterns and how to show our guests a wonderful experience. 

Along the way we’ve also learned how to best protect these special whales and dolphins, known as cetaceans. We are proud partners of the World Cetacean Alliance, working for their conservation throughout the world. 

We aren’t only a touring company – we are a sustainable travel agency and take an active role in science and research. In fact, on many of our tours, you’ll meet our biologists on board to help get the most from your whale watching experience. 

So, enjoy your holiday in the Azores with the most knowledgeable ecotourism professionals offering years of experience in delighting our guests.
