Private Boat Tour in Lajes do Pico

Pico island

The best that the Atlantic has to offer is allowing us to swing in its waters. The numerous fish species in the Azores, turtles and marine birds, even flying fish will be the props in this unimaginable scenery weaved in blue, clarity, and reflected sparkles.

At the calm rhythm of the waves or in hastier moments, stopping at magnificent bays or discovering the unpredictable coastline, time will fly without you noticing it!

    The Experience

    From the marina, let’s set sails to the infinite possibilities around Pico island.

    • Many possibilities

      – Come aboard our zodiac boats and enjoy some special time. According to your preferences, morning or afternoon, you can enjoy our crew and boat are at your disposal for 3 hours. Our goal is to help you enjoy your holidays in the Azores.

      Here are our options below:

    • a) Whale Watching

      – Whale watching in Pico is a must-do! Around the Azores, 28 cetacean species can be observed. Also, due to the deep seabed off Pico’s south coast, the animals can get close to the shore.

      – Our marine biologist will do a briefing to explain which species can be observed and how we respect the animals as well as the observation rules. Then, let’s go for the marine adventure!

    • b) Swiming with dolphins

      – Swimming with wild dolphins in the middle of the ocean is an experience you can’t forget. You might swim with one of 5 different dolphin species.

      – We will explain beforehand how to use snorkel and mask. It is also important to know how to enter the water and how to respect the animals. Once out in the ocean, you will feel the happiness of the free dolphins, swimming with them.

    • c) Coastal boat trip

      – A coastal boat trip is a relaxing way to enjoy some time with your friends and family on the ocean with the fresh breeze. We discover the coastline off Pico’s south coast from another perspective.

      – You might also stop for a swim or a coffee at a nearby harbor. During the tour, each passenger is required to wear a life vest.
