This is a great trip out. There is the opportunity to swim in the warmer water near some undersea vents, but for us the highlight was drifting along looking at Parrot fish, various rays and listening to the very knowledgable marine biologists explain it all and point out things you wouldn't otherwise have spotted yourself. Two hours went very fast.

We wanted to book again, but time was against us.

We experienced this tour and we found it interesting. Above all the guides who are very passionate and properly explained in a simple way about the sealife and local natural phenomena. Strongly recommended especially for non-snorklying people and families with kids.

It's a really nice trip, where you will see the bottom of the sea next to the Island of Faial.
They have (i think) two diferent trips. In ours, we went to see a cave in Monte da Guia, where they enter with the boat, and then we went to the other side of the bay, near the beach of Almoxarife to see the bubbles made by gas coming from inside the earth! It's really wonderfull.
The boat is very confy and the crew is awsome!

Great experience with a highly qualified team. My girlfriend and I enjoyed it so much we repeated a second trip. Surprisingly, it was even better, we got to see a dusky grouper of considerable size among other beautiful things.
Just one remark regarding the previous comment. My girlfriend and I both own a PhD in Marine biology and were very satisfied with the knowledge of the Oceaneye team. The briefing was good and both trips (with a different staff) were very knowledgeable regarding the biology and geological development of Faial.
Congratulations!
Totally recommend!
