Best Whale Watching trips
TO OUR EXCITING WORLD
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.
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! That means you can enjoy your whale watching experience and know that you’re a responsible citizen helping our wonderfully diverse planet.
We are so confident you will spot at least one whale or dolphin on your tour with us that if you don’t… you can book another trip for free!WHAT YOU CAN SEE

“FANTASTIC, ECOLOGICALLY RESPONSIBLE TOURISM”
“We went on a half day whale watching tour and had a wonderful time. We saw sperm whales, bottlenose dolphins and common dolphins and were really impressed with the approach of the crew. There were biologists on board who were very knowledgable and the captain found us lots of things to watch, but at the same time never disturbed the animals. For example, at one point there were too many boats around the first pod of dolphins we saw so we moved on. The company also posts pictures of each trip on Facebook and offers a free trip if you see nothing. They were very impressive.”

“MUST DO WHALE WATCHING TOURS!”
“ Whale watching is a must do activity in the Azores. And if you must go, you should go with Futurismo. Absolutely excellent tours every single time. I was on holiday in the Azores for a week and went every single day. Twice a day.”
Linda B – TripAdvisor
“We spend hours on the ocean and spotted dolphins and sperm whales. On the ocean you realize how small you are and the power of nature. Thanks for the wonderful experience.”
