Overview
More
Futurismo is a big reference in the whale watching in the Azores with about 30 years of knowledge. We are dedicated to science and research. Between 2008 and 2017 we have registered more than 11 thousand sightings in a universe of more than 20 different whale and dolphin species. We are dedicated to offer our guests the best nature experiences: Whale and Dolphin Watching Tours, Swimming with Dolphins, Hiking Tours, Bicycle Tours (MTB and road bike), Canyoning, kayaking, Stand Up Paddle, Jeep Safari and Van Tours. The Azores archipelago is a 9 Island little world in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. We are just a two hours flight from Lisbon and Porto and less than 4 hours flight from the US. Between the Azorean islands you can travel by boat or by plain.
