Swim with wild dolphins and hikes on San Miguel Island

Pourquoi un voyage au Portugal : Les Acores

During this 10-day organized trip to the Azores, you go on sea excursions and meet dolphins and other cetaceans, and hikes on land on the island of San Miguel. The trip is made from 2 people .

The encounter with dolphins and other cetaceans in the Azores

The sea of ​​the Azores, while being transparent, is tinged with the blue of the depths. Its mysterious atmosphere envelops swimmers in a healing light and they are no longer afraid to swim there, especially in the company of dolphins who show the way forward by preferring audacity to reserve. They invite us in a way to dare to live, which the ocean lends itself particularly well to: The cells of our bodies, made up of 60% water, are revitalized in contact with “crystalline memory” and the individual that they constitute becomes, or rather becomes again, a self-confident being.

During this 10-day organized trip to the Azores, you will meet wild dolphins and meet your own inner being : meet our inner dolphin and his creative energy . All members of this species have the gift of reconnecting us with the essence of our being and giving us back the simple joy of living. All the people who have taken part in this organized trip to the Azores come back transformed, ready to live a life where joy and power come together. The relationship with a dolphin produced endorphins and reduced anxiety. Dolphins provide a state of great calm, and this inner silence can allow us to reconnect with our inner being.

Don’t dream, you won’t be grabbing onto their fins and playing Pinball the Dolphin, you won’t even touch them! You will hear them, meet their eyes, feel them brushing against you to play and surround you. For 2 hours you do it at your own pace, the skipper is the master on board, he knows where to go, he doesn’t let you go in the water without constantly watching you, so never more than two people go down at the same time ! Then, you begin to swim quietly with mask and snorkel, without kicking your feet too much. And there, out of nowhere, you take a shoal of dolphins right in the face . They are everywhere, around and below you, they are dozens of white and bluish gray colors and of different sizes!

Durant ce voyage organisé de 10 jours aux Açores, vous partez en  excursions en mer à la rencontre des dauphins et autres cétacés, et des randonnées à terre sur l’île de San Miguel. Le voyage se fait  à partir de 2 personnes .

La rencontre avec les dauphins et autres cétacés aux Açores

La mer des Açores, tout en étant transparente, se teinte du bleu des profondeurs. Son atmosphère mystérieuse enveloppe les nageurs d’une lumière apaisante et ils n’ont plus peur de s’y baigner, notamment en  compagnie des dauphins  qui montrent la voie à suivre en préférant l’audace à la réserve. Ils nous invitent d’une manière à oser vivre, à laquelle l’océan se prête particulièrement bien :  Les cellules de notre corps, constituées à 60% d’eau, se revitalisent au contact de la “mémoire cristalline” et l’individu qu’elles constituent devient, ou plutôt redevient un être sûr de lui.

Lors de ce voyage organisé de 10 jours aux Açores,  vous rencontrerez des dauphins sauvages et rencontrerez votre propre être intérieur  : rencontrez notre dauphin intérieur et son énergie créatrice  . Tous les membres de cette espèce ont le don de nous reconnecter à l’essence de notre être et de nous redonner la simple joie de vivre. Toutes les personnes ayant participé à ce voyage organisé aux Açores reviennent transformées, prêtes à vivre une vie où joie et puissance se rejoignent. La relation avec un dauphin produisait des endorphines et réduisait l’anxiété. Les dauphins procurent un état de grand calme, et ce silence intérieur peut nous permettre de nous reconnecter à notre être intérieur.

Ne rêvez pas, vous n’attraperez pas leurs palmes pour jouer à Pinball the Dolphin, vous ne les toucherez même pas ! Vous les entendrez, rencontrerez leurs yeux, les sentirez vous frôler pour jouer et vous entourer. Pendant 2 heures vous le faites à votre rythme, le skipper est le maître à bord, il sait où aller,  il ne vous laisse pas entrer dans l’eau sans vous surveiller en permanence, donc jamais plus de deux personnes ne descendent à la en même temps ! Ensuite, vous commencez à nager tranquillement avec masque et tuba, sans trop taper du pied. Et  là, sorti de nulle part, vous prenez un banc de dauphins en plein visage  . Ils sont partout, autour et en dessous de vous, ils sont des dizaines de couleurs blanc et gris bleuté et de tailles différentes !

Dolphin Encounter Testimonials:

A magical encounter with dolphins!
“  My encounter with wild dolphins in the Azores is the most beautiful experience in the Azores. They are around ten around me. They turn around. I am below the surface. I observe them through my mask, some look at me: this exchange, eye to eye, is a magical moment. Their amazing, smile-like mouths make their faces look friendly. I feel like they are welcoming me and welcoming me. Little by little, they descend into the depths and move away, as if in slow motion… It only lasted a few minutes, but it will be unforgettable “: a reporter from Le Petit Quotidien 2018.

Other testimonials:

“  When the dolphins approach and seem curious to meet us, we put on our mask, our snorkel and our flippers, ready on the edge of the Zodiac… When the pilot says “go! », we get into the water, 2 by 2, holding hands. I got into the water with another person from the group, and we swam to meet them. They were in front of us, swimming harmoniously, in symbiosis. Then others came from below, and I heard them singing underwater. Their sound resembles small shrill cries that emit a kind of vibration. They moved me so much that I couldn’t help but cry. They were Rissos, a species of dolphins without beaks and bodies covered with scars. Before they passed us, one of them turned towards me. His funny face made him look like he was smiling at me. Then they disappeared into the murky depths.  » by Naomi | Mar 19, 2018 Kanao |
