The tour was pretty good. We saw some bottle nosed dolphins and a fin whale. Both impressive. We felt we could have received more information about the mammals and marine biology in the Azores. But overall good tour.

Went with Sea Colors recently and the experience was great from start to finish. Ended up on the water for over 4 hours, saw plenty and appreciated their sensitivity to the animals.

It's by luck what you see. Sea colours aren't magicians. You are on a boat trip to see wildlife. If you see what you desire consider yourself lucky. In two days I saw blue whales and fin whales, both with calves. Along with bottlenose dolphins...More
