FUTURISMO
A HISTORICAL COMPANY

Futurismo Whale Watching Azores specializes in whale and dolphin watching in São Miguel and Pico Islands.

The sea is our main playground at Futurismo, founded in 1990 by M. Ruben Rodrigues and based on trips to watch whales and dolphins in the Azorean waters alongside marine wildlife investigation and research.

Nature tourism is the company’s focus as a Destination Management Company (DMC) in the Azores. For almost 30 years, Futurismo has been working hard to develop all this scientific work and promote responsible whale and dolphin watching throughout the Azores.
