Why not take inspiration from Davina and discover the whale and dolphin-rich waters of the Azores for yourself? These beautiful, mid-Atlantic isles offer some of the best whale watching opportunities in the world, just a short 3.5 hour hop from the UK.

Sunvil discovered the delights of the remote Azores archipelago in 1990, and has been one of the leading promoters of responsible tourism to all nine islands ever since. The emphasis of Sunvil’s whale watching trips is not only to see the mammals in their natural habitat, but also on teaching and conservation. A marine biologist will introduce the cetaceans and discuss their habitat, communication and behavioural patterns.
