Journée complète Wales watching et lagoa do Fogo

Première expérience de « Wales Watching »
Great day, despite uncooperative animals and weather
ExploringEurope19, 09-04-2021
The guides (Vanessa and ?) were friendly and knowledgeable, and even introduced us to the lookout. Unfortunately, we didn't see whales, only dolphins, but not for lack of trying on the part of the guides. Those whales just don't always surface when you want, but the dolphins were fun! This was a rescheduled day due to weather conditions, and we found them to be very flexible with our options of ways to reschedule both halves of the tour. Lunch between the tours was fresh fish served at a restaurant right there at the harbor and was more than we could possibly eat! When we went to Lagoa do Fogo it was very foggy, but Lorenzo brought us further down the mountain to a spot a bit below the fog. The visit to the springs was great on a cool, drizzly day, and the waterfall at the end was beautiful. Lorenzo knew exactly where we needed to look to see the whole thing.

It's true we were a little disappointed not to see a whale, but the company still gets 5 stars for their efforts to provide the best tour possible. No one can control the weather or tge animals, but we still enjoyed every minute!
