At the appointed hour, meet us at the Vila Franca do Campo Marina to check in.
A brief introduction on the area species of cetaceans (whales and dolphins), their migration patterns, and aboard safety precedes the journey.
Follow your Guide and Skipper to the boat and head out to sea.Lookouts high inland assist in finding our pals and give VHF Radio guidance to the area where the boat will initially travel quickly. Your Guide will tell you as they cautiously approach our companions, gather field data and imagery for local study, and be accessible at all times to answer any specific questions you may have. Please feel free to do so.
All year long, marine wildlife can be seen. There are around 25 different types of cetaceans that can be sighted, along with three different dolphin species that live there and a wealth of marine biodiversity.
Returning to the Marina, the boat will take passengers on a tour of Vila Franca do Campo's Princess Ring Islet so they can get a close-up view of the volcanic wonder and the local animals.
