You will meet us at the Marina of Vila Franca do Campo for check-in, at the specified time.
The journey will start with a short informative briefing introducing you to Cetaceans (Whales and Dolphins), local species, their natural habitat, communication, migration, behavioral patterns, and onboard safety.
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 keep you informed on what you are observing, and is always available throughout the tour to provide answers to any specific questions - please feel free to ask anything at any time.
Upon return to the Marina, the boat will tour around the Princess Ring Islet of Vila Franca do Campo, for a close look at the volcanic marvel and resident wildlife.
