Faial, whales, then and now

About the tour

The full day tour takes about 7-8 hours and is the perfect completion of your whale watching trip. This tour shows you the sites on land which in the past played and sometimes still today play a role in our relationship with the wales.
Faial, whales, then and now leads you along the southern coast from Horta to the volcano of Capelinhos. At lunch time, we will have a rich picnic in one of the recreational parks of Faial. In the afternoon you will visit different observation posts and former launch sites of whaling boats. After returning to Horta you will visit the whaling museum.
