The Azores’ Best
Whale Watching Adventures

Year-Round
WHALE & DOLPHIN WATCHING EXPERIENCES WITH FUTURISMO

The Azores are blessed with whales and dolphins throughout the year. Some of these beautiful creatures make our islands their home. Others pass by on their migration routes, stopping to feed on the abundance these deep channels provide. 

At Futurismo, there’s always something to see – for instance, our resident species of whales and dolphins delight our guests. You’re likely to spot sperm whales, common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, and Risso’s dolphins. 

Would you like to see the largest whales on the planet? Then join us in the Spring – from March to June – when the giants pass through our waters. We’ll be exploring for the great fin, blue, and Sei whales as they visit the Azores on their migration journey.

 

WE ARE THE EXPERTS

You’ll have an onboard marine biologist or nature guide on every Futurismo tour to enhance your whale watching fun. They’ll share with you all the details of these fascinating giants who roam our oceans. 

Have your choice of tours – Futurismo offers departures from São Miguel and Pico Islands. Choose from trips leaving the ports of Ponta DelgadaRabo de Peixe or Lajes do Pico.
