    Sao Jorge to Pico

    by Sean1901 Written Jul 26, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If arriving on Sao Jorge was exciting, departing also hjas its merits. The ferry over to Pico takes around 30 minutes.

    The beautiful Velas harbour soon fades into the distance, as does the ridge of Sao Jorge, as the island of Pico approaches. If you're lucky and its clear. You get great views of the volcano.

    An added bonus is a spot of free whale watching. We saw a sperm whale coming up for air about 400 yards off the bow of the ferry.

    Wonderful!

    Terceira to Sao Jorge

    by Sean1901 Written Jul 26, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is quite an adventure. As you come in to land at tiny Velas Airport, you can almost touch the mountain to your left, and to the right there is a stunning view across the channel to Pico and its superb volcano.

    Rumour has it, that sometimes the pilots take two or three goes to land, although we got down first time.

    The arrivals hall is not much bigger than my living room, and packed with passengers, locals and taxi drivers.

    What an arrival!
