What people are saying about Vila Franca do Campo

Directly before the tour, some things are explained via video. The tour is conducted by marine biologists who pay attention to the welfare of the animals and also keep a good distance from the animals. Great importance is also attached to environmental awareness and visible rubbish is fished out of the sea. We saw 2 species of dolphins, 2 species of whales and a turtle and were given information about each animal. I can recommend this tour and this organizer without hesitation! It is worth taking part in such an excursion.

Unforgettable family experience. Wonderful guides, Reine and Miguel who also drove the boat, very educational and friendly, gave us all kinds of explanations about the birds, dolphins and whales that we saw. Yes, we saw a bowhead whale, the third largest in existence and it was very, very exciting.

Great time. The staff is top notch, super friendly. We saw whales, dolphins and a sperm whale. We enjoyed ourselves

Óriási élmény, amikor a delfinek néhány méterre a csónak mellett úszkálnak. Nagyon profi csapat.

An unforgettable experience. The guide very attentive and pleasant. Many thanks.
