A wonderful trip 8/5/22. We saw a Humpback Whale, enjoyed the joyful company of a large pod of Bottle Nosed Dolphins - and to finish - we saw a single Blue Whale in close quarters to us and then there were two Blue Whales. We were able to observe without changing the behaviours of the Whales or Dolphins. The skipper kept trying to find the animals the whole trip, in partnership with the spotters on land. An experience I shall remember for the rest of my life.

Enjoyed our day immensely with João as our driver and Pedro as our tour guide, both born and raised on beautiful Terceira. Pedro knew a lot about the island, about nature, history and geology. Not unimportantly, we also had a pleasant day. Because of the Jeep we not only drove on the main road but also the parallel roads. Highly recommended!

Antonio was our guide. Besides being a very pleasant man, he is very knowledgeable and interesting. lt was a wonderful day. we saw a lot of places and the lunch was superb. It is highly recommended.

Brilliant! We saw sperm whales jumping out of the water it was fantastic.

Antonio is a great guider, we enjoyed every moment during the tour.
