Lookouts

The Lookout´s job, starts very early, every day.
Beggining at first light, is thanks to them a great part of the success of this industry in the Azores.

On land, the lookouts use binoculars, and through their experience acquired with time, they communicate with us via VHF rádios and mobile phone, indicating the animals´ position, heading as well as the weather conditions. The Ocean is immense, without them, it would be like looking for a “needle in a haystack”!

Martins is our staff lookout, and he is the first one to get his eyes on the water.
