Great day at a great place. We make sure to visit every time. One of my favorite places since I was 5 years old. I recommend everyone to visit. In addition to it it's so good for your skin and overall health. Lots of minerals to help your skin.

Loved this trip, we saw a sperm whales and a quick dash by of bottle nose dolphins but one thing bothered me quite a lot and it was when we encountered a small pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins, I felt like all the boats in the area, there were 6 boats from various companies, all encircled the pod and they seemed to panic a little and started swimming in all directions. I felt that the boats should’ve backed off a bit more and not enclosed them so much. However I would recommend the trip to anyone who loves the sea and loved animals. We also saw flying fish and shearwaters. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly.

This was a wonderful tour! The guides are knowledgeable and excited about marine life and also respectful of the animals. We had the great fortune of seeing a fin whale, which is a migratory species. We also saw many bottlenose and common dolphins - even a baby! So cute! We had great weather for the tour (bring your sunscreen and a hat), but I even think this would make a good rainy day activity if you dress properly. Highly recommended! Don't leave the Azores without seeing some of its famous inhabitants.

We had two half day trips, one in slightly rougher seas, and one on a beautifully calm day. The staff were absolutely fantastic at helping us to make the most of our trips, and my 10-year old son and I had incredible experiences seeing dolphins swim beneath us as we snorkelled, and hearing them whistling and clicking around us. This isn't Disney, or Sea World. You're not going to play with them, or touch them, they're wild animals who will come close to you, or not, depending on what they want. It was a privilege to be near them in their own habitat.

My adult son and I spent a week in the beautiful Azores and did 3 trips with Futurismo. I really can’t fathom where some of the poor reviews come from. Futurismo are staffed by marine biologists and offer trips on boats and a rib. 2 of our whale and dolphin watching trips were cancelled due to weather and they re arranged them immediately. These trips are about respecting the animals and they are very clear about this and the fact that you may not see them. They always offer to re-arrange. Having been out on a boat - no matter how calm the waters are in the harbour once you leave they can be horrific so if they cancel - rest assured - you wouldn’t want to be out there. We had fantastic trips and were very lucky to see over 16 sperm whales and 3 different types of dolphins. We felt as if they knew us in the office and would highly recommend them. Photos attached are my own. Brilliant trips with great staff

Thank you so very much for your review! Indeed, the weather here in the Azores can be the four seasons in one day and working with nature is always full of surprises but we love to share it with our customers as we are so proud to be living in such a beautiful place! Thank you for understanding and sharing these values. We look forward to having you again on board at sea or on land for more adventures!
