The Azores’ Top
WHALE WATCHING ADVENTURES

Year round, Futurismo operates whale and dolphin watching experiences. Here around the Azores archipelago, there have been sighted 28 different cetacean species. There is always something to see, especially because we have resident cetacean species in the Azores such as sperm whales, common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and Risso’s dolphins. The best season to spot some of the biggest whales in the world is during Springtime (from March to June). In this specific season, the baleen whales are migrating and passing by Azorean waters. Thus, it is possible to see fin whales, blue whales and Sei whales.

From Ponta Delgada, Rabo de Peixe or Lajes do Pico, Futurismo offers different possibilities to observe the cetaceans around the Azores.

You will always be accompanied by a marine biologist or nature guide who will tell you all you need to know about cetaceans present in the Azores. During our tours, you will learn so much more about the giants of the ocean aboard our catamarans or zodiac boats.
