Overview

Based in Vila Franca, the historical capital of São Miguel, with its small harbour and cobbled streets, you will stay at the wonderful Convento São Francisco just 10 minutes walk from the seafront during your whale and dolphin watching holiday. You will be based half way along the south coast in the old capital of São Miguel, Vila Franca do Campo.

When you’re not busy out whale and dolphin watching, this is an excellent base for exploring the island. We have included 4 x 2½ hour whale & dolphin watching trips as well as an island tour, an afternoon with a marine biologist who will tell you about their current research on Azorean cetaceans and a talk about the history of whaling in the Azores.

Don’t forget, if you would like more or less trips to see the whales, just let us know.

Contact one of our team for more information on our legendary whale and dolphin watching holidays.
