This whale watching tour in Ponta Delgada, in São Miguel Island, takes you for four hours to the ocean and is ideal for you to collect the best photos we offer at the best schedules for the perfect golden hour.

If you want to learn more about the Atlantic ocean species and practice your photography skills this is definitely a must!

During springtime in Azores you can observe some of the biggest animals in the world such as blue whales, fin whales and Sei whales. Sperm whales, common dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and Risso’s dolphins live on our waters year-round making every season unique for whale and dolphin tours.

With our marine biologists, you will have the possibility to analyse your cetacean photos – photo ID. You will be involved in the process of scientific research and you will help analysing the sightings and the behaviour of the cetaceans of the Azores.

This is definitely a unique and unforgettable experience where you can deepen your knowledge and combine it with photography. We can say that the species will emerge at the surface only for brief seconds, but we will make sure you will take the best out of every blow!

Q: How do I get to São Miguel?
R: There are flight connections from Lisbon, Porto and other main capitals.

Q: I have back problems but I would love to go on a whale watching. Can I do this tour?
R: Futurismo Azores Whale Watching 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?
R: In this situation, we advise the catamarans. The catamarans are more comfortable and stable boats and we do recommend them for pregnant. Please inform us about any medical situation for better advise.
