Terceira: Whale and Dolphin Watching in a Glass Botton Boat

1. Terceira: Whale and Dolphin Watching in a Glass Botton Boat

The Azores are considered one of the best places for whale watching in the world. 28 species of whales and dolphins have been spotted there over the years. This unique 2.5-hour tour is the ideal situation for spotting whales and dolphins. The vessel has the capacity for 14 people, a glass bottom, and a 300 horsepower engine. With a 90% sighting success rate, the tour is assisted by a whale spotter located at the top of Monte Brasil. With long-range binoculars, they'll be able to guide the Skipper via radio, helping you to find the whereabouts of cetaceans (the animal family that these marine mammals belong to).

What people are saying about Terceira

Great experience! Small group in a fairly comfortable but small boat We were amazed: lots of dolphins and whales less than 20 meters from us and the luxury of having been able to observe dolphins underwater thanks to the glass bottom Small downside: too short … the excursion was supposed to last 3 hours but only lasted 2 hours (“good since we observed 3 species we can return to port”) But very professional and expert group

It was amazing the guide was excellent Victor will tell you what side of the boat to see the and what direction to hold your phone so you'll get the longest video when it comes up for air until the dive back down again.

Boat much sturdier and nicer than the other companies. Guides were nice, thoughtful and smart. You will get wet so wear suitable clothing and provided gear

Saw many dolphins, also next to the boat. And a whale from a distance. Magic. Recommended!

Great trip! We saw lots of dolphins and whales. The crew is very friendly.
