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 28 people, a glass bottom, and two 300 horsepower engines. 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 Angra do Heroísmo

The glass bottom in this boat is pretty much useless for whale and dolphin watching as the animals don't get "run over". And wild animals are not as trusting and playful as dolphinarium bottlenose dolphins. Nevertheless, the boat has an invaluable advantage. As the booking price is higher than that of the open dinghy, it is quite understaffed and you can walk back and forth on one boat while on the other boat even just getting up is a challenge.

What a great day on the water! It was a gorgeous day, period, but we also saw 4 different types of dolphin species and a sperm whale that day. We only had 8 other travelers with us, and the captain and guide were incredibly nice and well-informed.

It was such a beautiful experience. Victor and Pedro were really genuinely enthusiastic and helpful. Victor has a lot of knowledge about dolphins and whales. I would highly recommend doing this activity.

The guides were great. we loved the boat ride and saw whales and two types of dolphins.

Good organisation, very friendly guides and a nice boat!
