Based in one of the most charming and less-visited places on the island of São Miguel, Mosteiros, Terra do Pico is a maritime tourism company with a young team, characterised by its personalised customer service, relaxed atmosphere, and determination to provide the best possible experiences and landscapes that the Azores have to offer.

We operate on the historic north and west coast of the island, where whaling was practiced and where we now have the opportunity to find numerous and varied groups of cetaceans. With the aim of connecting people to Mother Nature and all the elements that this entails, we strive to offer, besides unforgettable adventures, moments of awareness regarding oceanic pollution and the various options for a more ecological self-sustaining life.

Whale watching from Mosteiros!

It was my third time to go whale watching with Terra do Pico in Mosteiros/Sao Miguel and it was overwhelming again! No better place and so nice and responsible people. There are more whales around here than on the South coast and no other boats. I will come back for sure!

Fantastic Sunset Tour!

Went on a sunset tour with these guys and it was great. Super well organised, super friendly staff that spoke in Portugese and English. The boat was really comfy and safe and all safety gear is provided and warm jackets. The scenery is breathtaking and we even went into a cave in the boat. We will definitely be booking our whale watching tour with these guys again!
