Spend seven nights in the cosmopolitan harbour town of Horta on our Faial whale watching holiday.
The Azores island of Faial is one Europe’s best destinations for whale and dolphin watching. The seas around the island are home to resident species of bottlenose, common and North-Atlantic spotted dolphins and sperm whales, with the big migratory sea-giants, blue whales and fin whales, passing through in the springtime.
You’ll spend your week in Horta – the charming capital of Faial, and you’re never more than a stones-throw from the marina for your four whale and dolphin watching trips. You’ll also have some time on dryland, exploring the island’s the magnificent volcanic landscapes, the historic architecture of Horta, and the neighbouring island of Pico – famous for it’s UNESCO-protected vineyards.
Peak season for the resident species is from April through to October, with the blues and fins usually sighted at the end of April/beginning of May. You can learn more about whale watching in the Azores on our blog.
