“WHALE WATCHING & ISLET VILA FRANCA DO CAMPO!”
“We didnt get to see much of the whales but that was okay! We were able to see dolphins up close and this group is super considerate for the animals! They didnt chase them or try to force the animals in any way! It was great how considerate they are to these beautiful creatures!!! Also super informative about the wild sea life and its environment! Islet was great as well, beautiful island and the staffs were very attentive! Would recommend.”

For 7 days you will have everything planned, you will see whales, you will swim in an islet in the middle of the ocean and even try the cozido meal in Furnas, a meal cooked underground.
