I've always wanted to swim with Dolphins, but can't support captivity, so I was extremely excited for this opportunity to swim with them in the wild. I booked the dolphin swim and Lagoa Do Fogo combo tour. Unfortunately, the weather was poor the day I went. It was raining, which made the visibility in the water pretty bad. We did... More

I went on the whale/dolphin watching tour in early January. We had a bigger boat and we were about 30 people altogether. There was an introduction in the Futurismo office which I found very interesting. The staff encompasses marine biologists, so they are obviously very knowledgeable about marine fauna. They sought to impart other information during the trip (which lasted... More

We booked a 3 hour tour to see dolphins and hopefully a whale. Given it was January, we knew viewing would not be great but worth a shot. The people are the desk and the actual crew were very professional. The boat was nicely kept, and we were able to spot Dolphins and a sperm whale. The staff were very... More

Dear Carriehuff, Your comment was very important to us. Your point of view was an alert to us for one small detail that, in fact, we don't have very clear on our information on website or even on our office. We need to improve and be more clear concerning the weather and special the sea conditions. Thank you to point... More

Travelled to the Azores in October and had booked the Sete Citades Tour. Our tour guide Trinn was very knowledgeable and organized. It was a highlight of our trip. I would definitely recommend this tour and Trinn as an excellent tour guide.

We loved booking our tours with Futurismo. All of the guides were very knowledgeable and very kind. We booked the whale watching tour, a tour to Furnas, and two 1/2 day jeep tours. They really took care of us and went out of their way to make sure we were able to experience everything we came to see.

Dear Rocashoc, Thank you for your opinion. In fact you underline two caracteristics of our staff: the guides know what they do and are well informed and they are entusiastic and love what they do, so they are pleasant. And for me, is the satisfaction to know that our mission is working well. Regards, Ruben Rodrigues More

Our guides were wonderful and kept our spirits up despite rough weather and rough seas that left us drenched. We saw two different types of dolphins but no whales, which can happen. If you go after September, like we did, I'd suggest leaving a dry set of clothes behind. I'd also recommend bringing a hat, scarf and wetsuit gloves if... More
