Azorean waters have a high biodiversity, especially coastal areas. Our coast has excellent places for observing marine life.
In addition, the presence of an experienced guide makes the activity even more unique.
In a region where nature has generously offered about 1 000 000 km2 of sea, there are countless opportunities that we find to enjoy all its mystique and natural beauty.
Sailing is one of the most intimate and romantic ways of relating to the sea. In a mutual relationship of surrender and fascination, in a sailboat, above all, we discover that the sea offers itself in fullness for us to enjoy.
The "singing" of the wind on the mast, the "beating" of the sails and the waves on the hull ... the sunset, the lights that are reflected in the water ... the feeling of freedom in the sea, the wind, the "smell of sea"…
Moored, anchored, sailing… day, night… simple ride, exciting racing… harmony, serenity, nature, adventure, challenge, strength,… unique sensations and messages
that Azore4Fun intends to offer on board of its sailboat to all sea lovers.
During this activity, you will have the opportunity to observe some of the more than 25 species of cetaceans that can be found in the Azorean seas.
We guarantee the observation of cetaceans (whales and dolphins) and we usually see turtles, birds and other marine species. We always have a biologist on board who provides an explanation of the species, safety rules and the importance of respect for animals. As well as some historical facts.
During the excursion, each passenger must wear a company-provided life jacket such as raincoats (if required).
Returning to the bay of Angra we pass by the coast of the Monte Brasil nature reserve where it will be possible to see São João Baptista Fortress.
Watching wildlife in their natural habitat is a rewarding, unique and indescribable experience. Being in the presence of the big, but kind, giants like the blue whale (the largest animal that ever existed on earth) and the fin whale, among others, or seeing the fast and agile dolphins, is an experience to come!

First the crater, then the last stage: the Piquinho. This, with its 70 m high, will give more "fight" but inevitable to achieve the goal: 2351 m altitude, the highest point of the island of Pico, the Azores and Portugal.
