  • Terceira Island Whale Watching and Jeep Tour

    1. Terceira Island Whale Watching and Jeep Tour

    Observe magnificent whales in their natural habitat before exploring Terceira Island, either in a shared tour or with your own private group. This trip is made more comfortable by traveling in jeeps that are perfect for taking you off the beaten track so you can see the very best of what the island has to offer. This tour is ideal for those who want a bit of island exploration in the most radical way. Routes are taken along secondary roads, which are not part of usual tourist itineraries. They are narrow, beaten paths and used mostly by farmers - you'll get to see the real Terceira. The roads are lined either by blue hydrangeas (hortensia), large trees or rough walls of basaltic stone. They lead to breathtaking views and you should take the time to stop along the way, step out of the jeep and take a closer look at all the magical nature that surrounds you.

    Guides are amazing. They have given us a wonderful trip over water and island! We are very happy with this experience.

What people are saying about Terceira

We hired the two excursions for Friday, as bad weather was expected to propose to postpone the activity of the whales. Finally we did the Jeep tour on Friday afternoon and the sighting on Saturday morning. Our guide in the Jeep, Patricia, was super friendly and nice. He told us many things about the island, taking us to the coolest places. The food was great and Antonio super nice. The next day after the whale watching we decided to also hire the excursion to the island of Cabras with snorkeling, we saw rays and also a turtle. It was all very fun! We recommend this activity 100%.

We went with Antonio, he was super nice. Were picked up at the accommodation and then went for whale watching. Then we set off with the jeep. We were lucky that there were only two of us, so he responded to what we wanted to see. In between we had a great barbecue.

An exceptional day in every way

It was an incredible day, Rui picked us up at the agreed time at the hotel, we did whale and dolphin watching, then we did a tour of the island, with picnic with barbecue and homemade food and incredibly good. A 10 for the staff.

Amazing tour with both Antonio’s today ! We had so much fun driving around the island and learning more about it and its people. Lunch was delicious and being with locals made it even better!
