3 Hour Tour
Rabo de Peixe


Our whale and dolphin watching centre in Clube Naval de Rabo de Peixe, on the North Coast of São Miguel Island is the place for starting the perfect adventure.

The north coast is where the whales swim closer to the shore. This means you are practically guaranteed a whale sighting. Before your trip you will have a small briefing from our marine biologists. They will also explain which species you will see, safety rules aboard and how we should respect the animals. Join us for the ultimate adventure!

Q: Is it possible to see whales and dolphins on every tour?
R: Every tour is a surprise. We are dealing with wildlife. But we offer you a guarantee: If you do not see whales either dolphins, we will arrange a new tour for you, absolutely free.

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.
