Itinerary Thoughts, Please

Hello and thanks for your thoughts! Family of 5, landing from Boston, USA in Ponta Delgada at 07:10 in early July- taking an immediate plane out to Horta that morning (leaving at 10:30)- staying for 5 days (time enough to hike, see the mountain on Pico, whale watch)- then fly back to Ponta Delgada for 5 days to enjoy all that island has to offer. What do you think? 3 islands in total. I plan to rent a car on Ponta Delgada but not necessarily on Faial (unless you think it's necessary). We are pretty adventurous and plan for a combination of go-go and relaxation. Thanks again. I can't wait!

see the mountain on Pico or hike the mountain? If it's hike be aware that even in summer it's possible that the fog in the vulcano might not allow you to do it on the day that you have planned to.
