What to expect

Join a fantastic and unique Wildlife Experience! Swim with wild Dolphins in the open ocean, and snorkel the atlantic underwater scenario of the Azores Islands!

This 2:30 hour boat tour provides a glimpse to the season’s coastal marine fauna and flora, along with the best connection to Nature, in the heart of the Atlantic.

What you can expect:

You will meet us at the Marina of Vila Franca do Campo for check-in and equipment setup, at the specified time.

The journey will start with a short briefing introducing you to local species, responsible practice on activity, onboard safety, and snorkeling equipment usage.

Everyone will follow the Guide and Skipper to board their designated boat, and go out to sea. Our lookout high inland will then locate our friends, and provide directions via VHF Radio to where the boat will travel - initially at high speed, so hold on and enjoy the ride!

While approaching our friends slowly, and very carefully, your Guide will evaluate if favorable conditions are met to allow the activity proceeding.

You must be always be prepared to go into the water! 2 swimmers will alternate in the water during limited periods of time - and you do not want to miss an opportunity in which Dolphins eventually can come close by their friendliness and curiosity.

On the second part of the tour, the boat will travel to a coastal location for snorkeling, to discover the characteristic marine fauna & flora in the island’s sea bottom.
