Whale Watching

By Breno Toste, 28, marine biologist

“The Azores Archipelago is known throughout the world as an extremely important area along the migration route of cetaceans. A third of the world’s whale and dolphin species passes by the islands. Whale watching is possible all year round on the island of Terceira. Holding binoculars, lookouts look for whales and dolphins and relay their position to the vessels they are working with. And when you spot one of these “sea giants” in their natural habitat you become… speechless! An experience you cannot miss when you visit the island of Terceira.”
