An experience to heighten the senses

Located at the upper limit for some seabird species, the Azores archipelago is undoubtedly an important resting or nesting place for several migratory birds. Of these, Cory’s shearwater is the most emblematic seabird of the Azores, as 80% of its worldwide population nests on these islands:

A migratory species that crosses the equator twice a year.

A superb flyer even in big storms and an excellent diver, up to 15m deep.

An important element in fishing for the valuable tuna, as it helps the fisherman find the shoals.

With Endemic Azores you can embark on a nocturnal trip to one of their colonies where we’ll give it a try:

Listen to the shrill sounds of these birds as soon as the sun goes down.

Learn to identify females from males through their sounds.
