Educational whale watching holidays in the Azores

There are plenty of whale watching trips to choose from, but not many offer a real insight into the research, the conservation and the issues surrounding these incredible animals.

Archipelago choice offer Whale and dolphin research holiday with Lisa Steiner

Our whale and dolphin watching holidays are based on the island of Faial in the main harbour town of Horta. You head out to sea aboard the Physeter: a specially converted motor-catamaran.  Lunches are provided and Lisa will arrange dinner at one of her favourite restaurant in the town on sea days.  There are nine, seven and five-night holidays to choose from.

2020 trips are selling quickly so if you’re keen, you’ll need to book asap.
