About the tour

Waterbased Outdoor Adventures - Whale Watching on Pico

Outdoor Activities and Family Adventures | The Small Adventure Company | Travel Agency for Adventure and Family Holidays in Europe

The waters around the Azores count 24 different whale and dolphin species of which you can encounter many of them throughout the whole year. Pico island has a long whaling history and the historic knowledge of spotting whales is now used during the whale watching tours, so you are almot 100% guaranteed to meet whales and dolphins on your tour. An unforgetable experience to get up close to the gentle giants of the sea.

Local Experiences - Hot Springs and Pico Wine

No visit to the Azores would be complete without taking a dip in the thermal hot pools. Relax in the iron-yellow waters at the Terra Nostra baths in Furnas, soak in the hot pools in the lush green scenery of Caldeira Velha or visit the Ferraria sea bath in the Northwest of São Miguel.
Grape cultivation has a long history on the island of Pico and locals have perfected their unique cultivation process of growing juicy grapes on bare black volcanic basalt. This technique has rewarded UNESCO status to the Pico vineyards and the results are high quality wines and we invite you to taste some of these unique wines while visiting a local winery.
