I have lived and travelled for many years of my life to over 50 countries but I call Ponta Delgada my home and have an immense affection for this place. I like to spend my time in the sea, having trained as a scuba diving instructor and made underwater video, but am happy here to free dive locally every day. I'm eager to share my perspective on what I consider to be, one of the closest experiences to paradise that I've ever encountered being here in The Azores. I also believe that we're here to connect with others, so I like to meet other people who believe the same.

We were very disappointed. We were at the meeting point 10 minutes before as instructed and the guide Dominic never showed up and didn't even reply to our messages.

Very interesting and informative tour, where we learned a lot about the history of the Azores/Sao Miguel. It was also a good way to get acquainted with the centre of Ponta Delgada. Thanks Dominic.
