This experience will take you to know one of the most beautiful places in São Miguel Island: Sete Cidades Lake.

In the morning time, we will meet you around 8:30 am at our shop in Portas do Mar to go for a whale and dolphin watching tour. The Azores are a unique place for whale watching and year-round you can encounter up to 28 cetacean species passing by our waters.

Before going to the ocean, our team of marine biologists will prepare a briefing that will explain a lot of rules and information on what to expect from the animals. After the unforgettable sea adventure, you will have lunch in Ponta Delgada at a local restaurant and then begins our jeep tour to Sete Cidades.

Sete Cidades is a volcanic complex full of lakes for you to discover. It is one of Portugal’s Seven Wonders and you cannot miss the views over the rim of the crater. It is even funnier to explore it in a jeep! On a sunny day, it is possible to see the difference of colors between the two lakes that are side by side. Our guide will also tell you all about this place, including the love story about the two lakes.
