This accommodation is situated in the small harbour town next to the BOCA from where we take the boats. This hotel and breakfast is included in the price of the weekly package program of whale watching and swimming with dolphins.
The small friendly hotel has mainly sea view en suite rooms, all with a fresh maritime feel. If you want a guaranteed sea view room you can pay a sea view supplement. The hotel was built only a few years ago by the Whale watching company and it's architecture follows the traditional Azorean

****"The Dolphin Connection team were great, the skippers had a lot of sensitivity to the animals and guided us to have some sensational encounters underwater and from the boats with so many dolphins and whales. I will be back!!" The company has a very responsible ethos and this this precious, unspoilt part of the world is being well preserved.
