Terceira island and the Historical City of Angra do Heroismo, are a perfect natural aquarium for cetacean watching. Due to the elevated food flux and the coastline does not have a continental platform, the ocean becomes very deep in a short distance from the coast, creating perfect conditions for the cetaceans. With a high percentage of sightings, Terceira became one of the elected islands for Whale and Dolphin watching.
