THE FAMILY DOLPHIN AND WHALE HOLIDAY OF A LIFETIME!
We offer special family holidays where you can either go independently and tailor your own affordable holidays or be part of one of our exclusive family small group tour where you share the adventure with other families (during school holidays). All our holidays have an emphasis on exciting experiences where you also learn about the Whales and Dolphins. Our holidays include boat trips to see whales and dolphins and land tours to explore the volcanic heritage of the island, enjoying hot springs and geysers. These tours will certainly enthuse your budding marine biologists and geologists! The activities are fun and led by experts who have a real passion for the Islands.
“When I asked my 10 year old daughter if this holiday was better than Disneyland, her answer was an astounding YES and a big smile” Linda Dempsey
We offer attractive child prices ( 12 years and under ) when sharing a large quad room with adults and also teen discounts. We have hand picked family friendly hotels with indoor and outdoor pools and great facilities. Our holidays include airport transfers (approx. 15mins), seven nights 4**** hotel accommodation in good sized family rooms and with a great buffet breakfast. In addition to sea and land trips, educational audio visual presentations are included and our friendly, knowledgeable marine biologist guides are on hand to assist you throughout your holiday. Flights are not included and you will need to book these to fly to Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel Island, Azores (the largest of the 9 islands in the mid-Atlantic Azores). There are many good and reasonably priced flight options.
“One of the best places in the world to see whales and dolphins”
The Azores is one of the best places in the world to see whales and dolphins. It is remote and unspoilt with a strong emphasis on sustainable tourism. The waters are rich in nutrients which attracts huge numbers of whales and dolphins. This is a very exciting opportunity and it is common on all trips to sight sperm whales and many other species of dolphins and whales. There is a good chance to see blue whales (the biggest mammal on earth!) as well as fin whales and humpback whales in the spring.
“A thriving, simply stunning natural environment at sea and on land that offers an incredible learning experience” Gaynor Evans, Brighton
Nature in the Azores not only thrives at sea but also on land. The Azores are simply stunning islands formed from years of volcanic activity. It is a unique and special destination where children can see and learn about lava caves, dry calderas, craters, lakes, fumeroles and bathe in hot springs.
