Sunset cruise along the South Coast of São Miguel Island

Description

To end a perfect day in São Miguel island, there is nothing better than a beautiful sunset. Futurismo offers relaxing boat trips to observe the sunset on the ocean and capture the famous golden hour on your photos. Join us in our shop at Ponta Delgada harbor at 6:00 pm and get aboard one of our catamarans. We will navigate along the South coast of the island to get the best views over the coastal landscapes. We will leave Ponta Delgada and pass by the airport zone, then Rocha da Relva, going Westward.
Onboard, you will have the opportunity to taste the local Azorean wine from Pico island and some of the archipelago’s cheese. Did you know that Pico’s vineyards are classified as UNESCO Patrimony since 2004? Its unique wine is a must among the local culinary specialties. Pico has a thriving wine culture. The island has been producing wine since the 15th century, about 10 years after the first settlers came, around the year 1439. Despite the strong volcanic pattern of the island, the vintners perfectly adapted to the landscape to launch their own wine. It is a truly unique terroir you have to taste during your stay in the archipelago.

Azorean cheese is also a delight. In the “islands of the happy cows”, 50% of Portugal’s cheese is produced even though the archipelago only makes up 3% of the national territory.
