Wine – the nectar of the Gods – is aged here since the dawn of times, as if it emerged from the rocks of this impressive island.

Outlined by the highest mountain in Portugal and veiled over it day and night, it transforms the scenery every hour.

For the connoisseur, as for the simply curious, the UNESCO-proclaimed sanctuary of Lajido is a mythical place that should be savored with wandering.

It is a journey that envisages extinct volcanos and living lagoons, beautiful models in the magnificent passarella of nature.

This is also the place of a heavy heritage of tears, bravery, and, at last, adaptation – from the primeval exploration of cetaceans to its respectful watching.

Reviews & more

It’s impressive that we haven’t found anybody during our walking tour. It was amazing the communion with nature. It feels that nature is still untouched.

Andrea Sievers, Germany

We had a great whale watching trip! Compared to some of the other operators that were on the water the same day, these guys seem to care much more about the animals (when we spotted a whale, the captain slowly got us closer to it, trying not to disturb the animal, while some other boats went at it at top speed).

We saw about a dozen young sperm whales, and a large pod of dolphins, but even without any sightings, the fantastic three-hour boat trip would have been worth the money!

Ewan, The Netherlands

After swimming with the dolphins in open sea I was feeling differently… I felt such a powerful energy. It’s an experience that I recommend to everybody!

Joana Cardoso, Portugal

Excellent English spoken and very knowledgeable guides. The company shows true passion for working with guests and imparting a good cultural experience.

John Smith, USA

I enjoyed particularly the fact that we could visit São Miguel on the jeep tour and got a whole different idea from our last trip. Knowledgeable information is given by the guide about the island specially concerning Azorean history and traditions. Great service and wonderful friendly guides!

Are the Azores a good whale watching destination?

The Azores are a great whale watching destination, probably one of the best in the whole world. We have sperm whales all year round. Being in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, lots of cetacean species pass by our islands during their annual migration.

Can I touch the whales and dolphins?

No, our strict whale and dolphin watching rules forbid to touch the animals. They are wild and we should respect them.

Can I use my drone during this tour?

You cannot use a drone on our tours with other travelers. However, if you really want to fly your drone, it is possible on a private tour with us.

No, we do not sell anything on the boat. If you know that you get easily seasick, it is better to purchase the adequate medication before the tour.
