It is possible to spot about 27 species of cetaceans in the Azores throughout the year. With Picos de Aventura, you can enjoy whale and dolphin watching in the company of a professional team of skippers, biologists and guides. Before heading out to sea, a briefing is held on cetaceans, sighting methods, safety rules, and the code of ethics for Cetacean Watching in the Azores. Picos de Aventura boasts a 99% success rate of sightings per trip.

Picos de Aventura also takes you to discover the interior of São Miguel Island, with hidden waterfalls and streams that you can explore actively: walk in the water, jump into translucent pools, and slide between rocks that have been shaped by the stream's flow. But the biggest attraction here are the various rope techniques that are used for challenging the waterfalls that gush down from above. These are the ingredients for a fun and adrenaline-packed experience in a true water park.
