Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I've done many whale watching tours around the world, and this was probably the best. Whales and dolphins of course are wild animals, and unlike land animals they live in the water where you can't see them very well, so whale watching is always hard. We saw four species in our tour. The boat is fast and agile and was driven expertly. The biologists on board identified the animals and explained what we were seeing. And they have folks on land who do the spotting and radio the boat. The boat is very fast and fun but a little adventurous, wouldn't recommend for thr very faint of heart or people with mobility problems. Excellent tour

    Knowledgeable staff, friendly,efficient flow. Close up viewing of nature! We saw 2 species of whales and multiple sea birds. To top it off we saw a flying fish and a Portuguese man of war.

    What a great experience! The skipper and marine biologists were exceptional which gave us the opportunity to see hundreds of dolphins and even a humpback whale. The dolphins were on both sides of the boat with many young ones with their mothers.
    The boat ride was adventurous as it is powerful and fast! The waves would spray water onto us but the tour includes wet gear.
    The perfect morning experience!

    The whole trip was amazing!!
    Staff was professional, kind and know a lot about dolphins and whales.
    We had nice weather and were very lucky because we saw two tipes of dolphins and sperm whales (three adolts and one baby).
    What we like the most is that our crew bring us close enough to see animals (some dolphins were swiming under our boat) but also keep the distance so that we didnt disrupt them and also make sure that all people on boat saw animals.
    First we reserve tour on the norden side of the island, but it was canceled, but Picos de Aventura offer us to go with them on the same day or day after on tour from south. And im very glad that we did, becouse we saw whales.

    If you decide to go watching whales I really recomend Picos de Aventura.
    Also recomend to go with a smaller boat-zodiak. It is faster, more agile and you come first to the site with animals.

    Wonderful experience, that was perfectly guided! The interaction with the animals was very respectful and we were additionally provided with a lot of information about the animals and research projects, in which Terra Azul is involved. Being in the water with dolphins is simply a unique experience. A big thank you to the Terra Azul Team!
