Whale watching

Meet whales and dolphins in one of the best places in the world for Whale watching, where the activity is sustainable and keeps alive some of the old whaling traditions.

More than 20 species of cetaceans swim past São Miguel Island, including the Killer whale and the Whale shark.

Off São Miguel’s coast there are 4 resident species, which can be observed throughout the whole year, and 22 migratory species best seen between March and September.

The method used in Whale Watching is adapted from the times when whales were hunted. Basically, the animals are spotted by the Vigia, a person equipped with binoculars in a watch tower, who is responsible of guiding the boat in the right direction. After the dolphins or whales have been spotted by the boats, a strict set of rules is followed in order to ensure the safety and well-being of the creatures, as well as the passengers.
