Whale and dolphin watching + jeep safari to Lagoa do Fogo - full day

Description

During this activity you will have the opportunity to watch some of more than 25 cetacean species that can be found in the Azores. Although nature offers no guarantees, whales and dolphins are regularly seen during our full day tours, along with turtles, seabirds and other marine life. Before the boat trip one of our biologists give you a briefing to explain which cetacean species can be observed, safety measures aboard, how we respect the animals and rules of observation at sea as well as some historical facts. During the tour each passenger is required to wear a life vest (except on our catamaran). Futurismo also provides rain coats and trousers if necessary. Lunch is in a local restaurant. After lunch we depart on our jeep tour. This wonderful tour combines different road routes in both highlands and flatlands, taking you to the amazing natural reserve of Lagoa do Fogo to enjoy nature at its best. The astonishing views from the top of the crater’s rim are a must to photograph! We then drive you to Caldeira Velha, a warm iron-rich waterfall where you can go for a dip to experience its warm waters.
