The Wild Dolphins of Pico

Swimming with Dolphins in Lajes do Pico

While nature is as impressive as unpredictable, «Futurismo» has years of expertise, enough to persuade it:

Placing you in the habitat of dolphins, turning the Atlantic into a sweet, humorous, and comprehensive meeting place, that is our irrefutable offer to you.

The communication sounds produced by these creatures will be the music in your ears; the clarity of the water, your magnifying glass. This experience will define you a new place in the world.

    Fulfill your deepest dream and join us to swim with wild dolphins in the Azores!

    This is definitely a must-do when visiting the archipelago.

    In addition to swimming with the dolphins in their natural habitat, you will also learn so much about these intelligent animals.

    Whilst you are in the water, you can also hear them communicate with their click and whistle sounds. An amazing underwater experience.

    • Pre-tour briefing

      – At Lajes do Pico, our qualified biologists will brief you before going out on the ocean for about 2.5 hours. They will tell you all you need to know about swimming with dolphins in Pico.

      – You will learn how to enter the water, how to behave around wild dolphins and how to swim with them while respecting them, as well as how to use the snorkel and mask.

    • Out in the sea

      – During the tour, you might swim with different dolphin species. Among them: Bottlenose dolphins, Common dolphins, Risso’s dolphins, Striped dolphins or Atlantic spotted dolphins. Some of them might be curious and get closer, others will be shy and keep a distance.

      – Unlike in other destinations around the world, we do not allow to touch the dolphins. This is because we want to keep them wild and relaxed about human interaction. The tour will be operated on our zodiac boat with a maximum of 8 participants aboard.

      – Also, there will be only two persons in the water at a time to be sure not to scare the dolphins away and respect them.
