Full description
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.

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%.

Patricia was as wonderful as she was during the lava tours. Antonio was wonderful and cooked a traditional Portuguese meal for us all. The whale watching was really fun, but alas, there were no whales to be seen this day. We did however see several dolphins and a newborn calf along with a sea turtle. Very good outing.

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.
