Make your way to the Futurismo Activity Centre in Ponta Delgada prior to your morning departure time. Meet your guide and your group and board a boat for the first part of your trip: a whale watching tour. Other aquatic animals such as dolphins, turtles, and seabirds may also make an appearance, and a biologist will provide information about animal behavior and responsible observation at sea.
After the first part of your tour, stop in Vila Franca do Campo for lunch at a local restaurant. Then, board a converted traditional fishing boat and head to Vila Franca do Campo islet, a volcanic crater off the coast that encloses a natural lagoon. Gear up in the provided snorkel equipment to observe the variety of fish living in this natural reserve.
Return to the original departure point at the end of the tour.
