Swimming with Dolphins in Sao Miguel

Sao Miguel island

There are some experiences that give us wings, that sustain our souls and inflate life into our lungs; there are activities that fulfill our desires and inspire us.

Take part in this interview with wild dolphins, reserved to small groups, with the magnificence of their natural habitat as the scenario – the ocean.

Our guide-biologist will rehearse the gestures and the security actions with you to ensure a magical, mute dance, an absolute interaction with the purity of such beings.

    Because choosing to swim with wild dolphins in their natural habitat, instead of captive dolphins in a swimming pool is just the right decision to make. Those curious animals are so much happier in the ocean, they need space and their family in order to live a long and good life.

    Also, at Futurismo, we care about the well-being of the animals. That is why we respect strict rules given by the World Cetacean Alliane, the biggest organization in the world for cetaceans preservation. That allowed us to receive their international certification as a responsible tour operator.

    • Port de Ponta Delgada

      – Cette grande aventure commence à la Marina de Ponta Delgada, dans notre boutique. Notre personnel vous accueillera pour l’enregistrement.

    • Before heading to the Atlantic

      – Before hopping on the boat, our team of marine biologists will explain everything you need to know for this experience. They will tell you how to get into the water and how to interact with the dolphins. And of course, how to use the snorkel and the mask. Those are important information to take the most out of this experience.

      – After the briefing, you will be guided to a zodiac boat. These small and fast boats are perfect to reach the animals easily.

    • Out in the sea

      – There, you will probably have one of the most amazing experiences of your life. The dolphins can get very curious sometimes!

      – Usually, we go to the ocean with a maximum of 8 people and only two people will go in the water at the same time. This is how we guarantee that everyone enjoys the experience. In each tour you can dive two to three times. We promise you a once-in-a-lifetime adventure and a lot of knowledge about these super intelligent creatures of the ocean.

      – Please don’t forget to check the Advisory section in order to enjoy this experience at the fullest.

    • Back to shore
