We had a great great trip, we saw over 20 whales, two different species, as well as some 20 dolphins. The guides were very interested in offering useful information so I would totally recommend!

So good we went twice! The guides were amazing. So full of knowledge, funny, approachable and offering all of the information in both Portuguese and English. As well as one guide speaking with guests in French and German. Then as you can imagine the wildlife was fantastic. Whale's, Dolphins, bird's, turtles. Absolutely incredible experience, especially as they allowed us to the front of the boat when we had sightings, which made the views even more special, especially with the dolphins. My only regret is not going more times with them while there.

I went for whale watching on a zodiac boat with this company and it was an awesome experience. The road is quite bumpy and fast so it is an experience by itself but I felt completely safe during the whole ride. Nevertheless they offer also more calm trips on katamaran. During our trip we saw a big group of bottlenose dolphins and two species of whale. Either the biologist and a driver where very enthusiastic and the amount of information about animals behavior they gave us was really outstanding. Last but not least - they attitude to the nature and animals: They emphasized the need of responsibility and all the time we could feel their respect for the animals - no need to come as fast and as close as possible to every individual but rather respect they life space and safely watch their natural behavior. Simply lifetime experience.

This is an absolute must do if you visit the island. Actually, even if you have whale whatched before or on other destinations, don't give this a pass. In our trip we say humpback whales jumping around. It was an impreasive experience. Great staff, extremely educational.
