your experience

Hidden Coves and Reefs

Follow your guide and skipper to the designated boat and go out to sea. First, the boat will travel along the coast to observe the known coastal colonies, shorebirds, and life at the volcano islet of Vila Franca do Campo, and then head out to sea looking to find seabirds and perhaps some spectacular underwater cetaceans.

High inland lookouts help locate our oceanic friends and provide directions via VHF Radio to where the boat will travel initially at high speed. While carefully approaching undetected viewing distance, your guide will keep you informed.

Birdwatching, Scientific Photography, and Marine Biology

Many Birds find oases in the Azores Islands to breed and raise chicks, or as an on-route refuge - marine birds can be observed yearlong, peaking in Spring with the arrival of migratory species, and in Autumn with rare American vagrants.

Commonly found breeding species are Roseate Terns, Yellow-legged Gulls, Bulwer’s, Grant’s, and Monteiro’s Storm-petrels. Encounter the magnificent Cory’s Shearwater in their largest community on Earth. These seabirds breed in caves, burrows, and crevices under fallen rocks in the Azore islands and islets.

Migratory species you might spot include Little Egret, Turnstones, Whimbrels, Pomarines, Great Shearwater, and Leach’s Storm-petrels. You will know them very closely as your scientific guide teaches you how to identify them with ease.

At 11am you will be returned to the Marina for check-out, leaving with what we can hope is a deepened appreciation for the life that exists on this planet.
