What to expect?

Whale Watching Tour & Snorkeling in São Miguel

Take in the wild beauty of the island of Sao Miguel on this full day Tour, starting at the island's Marina. After a short briefing on safety and on the local species of whales and dolphins that thrive around the island, we will depart for an exciting, guided marine wildlife boat tour, lasting approximately 3 hours.

At 11:30 -once back at the Marina-, you will enjoy a typical lunch with local food of the bustling Vila Franca do Campo village at a seafront restaurant.

At 13:30 you will be handed your snorkelling gear and a ticket to travel on board a traditional fishing boat converted to a ferry to the natural reserve Princess Ring Islet, just outside the Marina of Vila Franca do Campo. You will arrive to a volcanic crater & natural pool with open views to the Atlantic, which is perfect for bathing, swimming and snorkelling.

Boats depart back to the Marina every hour until 17:30 - be sure not to miss it!
