When to go

Although the Azores are a year round destination, the whale-watching season from May to October is dictated more by weather than the migration patterns of whales and dolphins.


  • Summer

    Jun to Oct: The summer months are the best time to visit the Azores, with warmer temperatures and calmer seas
  • Winter

    Nov to May: The climate is fairly mild year-round, but heavier rainfall and higher seas can be encountered.

Wildlife events

  • Jul to Aug: Beaked whale (Sowerby’s, Cuvier’s and Blainville’s)
  • Jan to Dec: Sperm whales, bottlenose, striped and Risso’s dolphins
  • Mar to Apr: Baleen (blue, fin and sei) whales pass through
