Q: Is it possible to see whales and dolphins in every tour?
A: Every trip is different. We guarantee that if you do not see any whale nor dolphin, you can reschedule your trip for free.
Q: How do I get to Pico Island?
A: There are flight connections to Pico Island from Lisbon (Azores Airlines). You can also fly from São Miguel or Terceira Island. Also, if you prefer you can fly to Faial Island and then arrive to Pico by boat – the connection between Pico and Faial Island is about 30 minutes and you have boats year round. To book the ferry for all the other islands, you can do it through Atlanticoline or in our shop in Portas do Mar, Ponta Delgada. Check the flights to Azores.
Q: I have back problems but I would love to go on a whale watching. Can I do this tour?
A: Futurismo Whale Watching Azores in Pico Island has only a zodiac boat. This boat is less spacious than the catamarans that we have in São Miguel Island. We do recommend you to have some medical advice before this experience.
Q: I am pregnant and would like to do whale watching. Is it safe?
A: In this situation, we advise the catamarans in São Miguel. They are more comfortable and stable boats. In Pico Island, we only have a zodiac boat, so we do not recommend you to do this activity.
