About this tour

After leaving Porto da Baleeira towards the high seas, we can glimpse the vast marine fauna found on the slopes of Sagres along the entire coast.

This area is home to local and migratory birds that make their way to southern Europe. The time when sightings are most abundant due to migrations is in the months of September and October.

Among the species that can be seen are the gannet Morus bassanus, the shearwater Calonectris borealis, the Balearic shearwater Puffinus mauretanicus, the dark-winged gull Larus fuscus and the alcalde Catharacta skua. From the month of May until October, the small and impish Strom petrel storm petrels are seen.

In the month of October we find the black shearwater Ardenna Grisea, the Audouin’s gull Larus Audouinnii and the Arctic miller Stercorarius Pomarinus. Wandering among the waves of the sea, you can also see the sea bream Hydrobates pelagicus, the barreled shearwater Ardenna gravis and the common sea shearwater Oceanites oceanicus, the latter most commonly seen in the months of August and September.

On days when conditions are considered perfect, we can observe the Sabine gull Xema sabini or the long-tailed miller Stercorarius longicaudus.
During the tour it is possible to use bait to attract the birds so that they can be observed up close, as well as sailing calmly, making stops to study the animals’ behavior.

It is worth noting that on expeditions it is quite common to encounter other marine animals, such as dolphins and whales.

Come and discover the wonders off the coast of Vila do Bispo.

Amazing and memorable day

We had such a memorable time here - such a warm welcome from Marcial and Paula and then such expertise all day from Gui👍🏻. Gui was undoubtedly one of the most knowledgeable guides we have had the pleasure of experiencing. We saw many birds highlights being: Orphean Warbler, Bonelli’s Warbler, Short Toed Eagle but the star of the show was Eurasian Eagle Owl.
