What people are saying about Vila Franca do Campo

We really enjoyed the ride and saw a whale and saw 2 groups of dolphins (different species). At the end of the tour we went to an island near the port. The marine biologist was very friendly and spoke German and English. She took our 7 year old son to the skipper so he had a better view that was a great gesture!

Very lucky to have been able to observe two species of whales and three of dolphins, all accompanied by an extraordinary and friendly guide, Aurora, who perfectly masters at least 4 languages and her subject. Thanks !!

We had a great time thanks to skipper José and guide Marie-Lou. We were very lucky in our observation: whales and dolphins all along our route. Marie-Lou's explanations are very clear. Thanks again !

Eat lightly before going. Great trip in the zodiac to see dolphins and whales. Lower your expectations and just enjoy to be happy with what nature reveals to you. Great biologist on board.

Great tour guide very efficient service, can't fault it!
