The company was born in 2016 when our family decided to embark on a new sea and land adventure. In 2020, there is an opportunity to become the owner of OceanEye Azores. It is from our exclusive product, the glass bottom boats, that comes the name of our sustainable tourism company.
From generation to generation the passion for the sea and nautical activities was being transmitted. All of us, grandparents, parents, children and grandchildren grew up in tune with the sea. Given our maritime tradition this new challenge was welcomed by us with the greatest pleasure and dedication.
From the beginnig we differentiate our offer from all others on the island of São Miguel because our glass-bottomed boat is an exclusive product and a wonderful experience that you can only have with us.
Over time we decided to expand our activity at sea and we bought the Toranja, a boat adapted to the weather conditions, so as to give you the opportunity to get to know the Azorean sea life, as well as sea bird watching and even more a boat with glass bottom. With OceanEye Azores you can not only explore the Azorean sea but also our terrestrial landscapes.
From the sea we head to land, where we have guided van tours around our lush island. We can take you to the most tourist spots, such as Sete Cidades, Lagoa do Fogo and/or Furnas, as we can take you to more unknow but equally beautiful places. If you want to venture a little further and go for a walk, we are also happy to accompany, getting you to know our private properties.
The OceanEye Azores team is proud of its sustainable practices and will do its best to provide you with the best experience possible in the Azores. We're waiting for you!
As a company or as a family we intend to take the name "Azores" further, making it clear that we advocate a sustainable tourism practice.
