Very professional center who provide a comprehensive and strong introduction / explanation. The boats are overcrowded. We had A good skipper and staff (French speaking). We saw 4 species up close and really enjoyed our 3hr of whale watching.

This team of people who run whale and dolphin watching trips south of Pico are excellent. Well organised, well informed, knowledgeable, linguistically superb, friendly and really focused on the environment. Don't go somewhere else in the Azores is my advice.
