It would sound perfect if we were to tell that this project started with an incredibly designed business plan, precise KPIs and objectives and top-notch marketing! Nevertheless, that would not be true.
Futurismo is an act of passion. For our islands, our culture, our people, our sea, and the amazing cetaceans that have crafted the Azoreans. A passion for the best of our islands. Going slow and taking in the best of the Azores. Our people, the amazing fauna and flora, our culture our history and stories.
When the Azores turned away from the whaling industry, we saw what the future of the islands would look like and led the travel evolution to whale watching, and contributed decisively to transforming the relationship of the Azoreans with the cetaceans.

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