Swimming with Dolphins & Jeep Tour Sete Cidades

Sao Miguel island

Hear the dolphin community communicate amongst itself; listen to the sound of the sea breeze as a background; immerse yourself in this saga of salt and freedom.

A pause for gastronomy and our jeep goes along the north coast of a volcanic complex that will take you to the summit; the view from the top, over grazing pastures and water mirrors, torpifies…

    • 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.
