Azores, Madeira & Beyond

The Expedition Experience

Island life captivates our imaginations. These small worlds unto themselves, isolated by expanses of ocean, developed for centuries free from influence. They were eventually discovered and colonized, but deep underneath, they’ve maintained their traditional ways, in tune with the nature surrounding their small world.

Overheard

The clear waters of the Azores are magical. Here deep ocean washes up against some of the tallest mountains on the planet, providing a rare opportunity to encounter the extraordinary creatures that call abyssal waters home. Two dozen species of marine mammals flourish among the shrouded volcanic cliffs and canyons beneath sparkling surface waters.
