Hello! I'm Daniel and I'm 28 years old. I am a native of São Miguel - Azores, more precisely from the city of Ribeira Grande. In 2018 I built a Vila, the "Mitós Vila 3" and I started working with Airbnb. I am passionate about sea and fishing and since I was a recreational boat owner a few years ago, I decided to open a small tour company along the coast of the beautiful city of Ribeira Grande. I have been a marine-tourist operator since 2018 and now I decide to let you know this unique experience through Airbnb!

Excelente viagem de barco ao longo da costa! Uma forma muito agradável de conhecer pontos de pesca, locais históricas, grutas, praias, etc... tivemos a possibilidade de realizar snorkeling e de nos banhar. Fiz, com outra companhia, um passeio whale watching, mas preferi de longe esta experiência, além de ser mais barata e durou cerca de 3h. Obrigado mais uma vez Daniel, por nos teres proporcionado este dia! Sem dúvida um dos HILIGHTS da nossa ida aos Açores!!!

An absolutely amazing experience. Seeing the north shore from the boat gives one access to wonderful views and special place that would otherwise be unreachable. It was very relaxing and did not feel rushed like it sometimes does when you do commercial boat tours. Daniel is a true expert on the surroundings. He was super friendly and communication was excellent. Daniel also gave us lots of tips on things to do and see in the area! This experience is an absolute must. Great value too!

This was a wonderful and personalized welcome to the island. Daniel was super friendly, prepared, and accommodating. A true local. Rather than feeling like a corporate tour, this felt like meeting a distant cousin for the first time. Just wonderful.

Daniel's trip was a ton of fun. My brother and I were the only guests on the small boat with him and his girlfriend, so we could take things at our own pace and snorkel anywhere we wanted for as long as we wanted. Daniel's a lifetime local with deep connections in the area. He's super passionate about the island, its people, history, and ocean life. It felt like hanging out with your friend with a boat. His mom even packed us sandwiches! The spots we visited were surreal. Snorkeling in massive caves surrounded by a school of thousands of fish in a clear azure sea. We really couldn't have asked for anything more.

The Boat Trip with Daniel was absolutely fantastic! He introduced us to a special part of the island with an amazing scenery and crystal clear water almost throughout the whole trip. He even took us to a special spot to do some snorkeling which was absolutely amazing. He seemed to know everything of São Miguel (and everybody ;) and told us a lot about the Island during the trip and even gave us very useful food and entertainment advices. Daniel generally is the nicest guy ever and the perfect guide!

I highly recommend this tour. My wife and I wanted to see the rugged north coast of Sao Miguel, and had a wonderful time on Daniel's boat. We were with another couple and had a fantastic time seeing the coast, the caves, and other sites that Daniel pointed out. We were out longer than the time stated for the tour, which we appreciated! Daniel was helpful not only showing us the coast, but also in recommending restaurants and other interesting places to see on the north side of the island. Thanks to him, we wound up spending more time in that part of Sao Miguel than we would have otherwise, and it was a great experience. We will book Daniel again when we come back next year!
