Description

The Azores are currently one of the world’s biggest whale sanctuaries. Among resident and migrant species, current or rare, more than 20 different types of cetaceans can be spotted in the Azores. It is an impressive figure and corresponds to a third of the total number of existing species. We are in an ecosystem with unique characteristics. With the presence of majestic whales and friendly dolphins, the blue from the Atlantic Ocean becomes even more magic and blessed around the nine islands
