we saw lots of dolphins and one humpback whale , the guide was very knowledgeable and we were only on a 12 person boat , got a bit wet as the sea was quite bumpy and it was windy . put your camera in a plastic bag !!!, wear a waterproof coat, a must thing to do .

An experience I will long remember. A slow start with some dolphins, but afterwards plenty of whales. On a normal whale watching tour, you count the number you see. But on this trip we did count the number of whales surfacing at the same moment. You just have to do this!

I didn't see a whale, but the dolphins were cool. It's a great way to see the island from the sea. A bit pricey though!

Our experience topped our expectations. Sweet Sea offers the perfect day trip where you get to know the wild sea life the Azores has to offer. The crew was very professional and with a wide knowledge of marine biology. It was a true joy and definetly something we will want to do again! Thank you for an amazing experience! Emilie... More
