Whale and Dolphin Watching
Swimming with Dolphins in the Azores
While swimming with dolphins in the Azores you can observe them in their natural habitat feeding, mating, jumping, communicating or bow riding in front of our boat. You will discover how they protect their babies and how they behave as a social group.
After years of running this programme we know the Azorean waters well and know where to find the dolphins. We always treat the dolphins with utmost respect and use the conditions at sea and their behaviour to identify the best time to join them. Our experienced guides will prepare you for the trip, teaching you how to behave appropriately around the dolphins so that you have the very best experience possible. Every day out at sea is different and every experience is unique. So if you want a deeper understanding of the dolphins' way of life we suggest that you join us on a minimum of 6 excursions.On our boat rides, as well as the dolphins, we often meet whales and turtles, and sometimes large fish such as Sun-fish and Blue Marlin. Who knows what you might spot? we have seen it all!
So be our guest and join us on our trips into the other world ? the blue kingdom of the dolphins! This trip costs €79pp.
In the Azores there are laws in place to protect the dolphins and whales. You may only swim with the small dolphin species and it is strictly forbidden to touch the mammals or use scuba gear by them. We observe the dolphins from the water surface using only snorkels, masks and fins. If you have never been snorkeling before we offer a short beginner's course so that you can confidently swim with the dolphins.
