Silversea Luxury Cruises A PONTA DELGADA (São Miguel Island)

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Ponte Delgada

Providing a gorgeous green welcome to sailors venturing on the long journey across the Atlantic, Ponta Delgada’s shoreline is a reassuring sight, as it emerges into view. Sat on São Miguel Island, the largest of Portugal’s Azores islands - which wait on an outpost of western Europe, some 1,100 miles from the mainland. Ponta Delgada is the island’s largest city, and a place of spectacular volcanic vistas, steaming hot springs and impressive landscaped gardens. View more

The city’s signature trio of arches welcomes you to Ponta Delgada, and its island of verdant volcanic contrasts. Wander between monochrome churches like the Gothic Church of St. Sebastian, and up to the Convent and Chapel of Our Lady of Hope – which houses the revered icon of Christ that is paraded through the streets annually, and believed to have miraculous powers by locals. Or, head for beaches offering sanctuary on charcoal-coloured sands, or the tropical António Borges Botanical Gardens, where tropical plants add extra shades to the Green Island's scenery. Now extinct, the mighty Caldeira das Sete Cidades is a truly awe-inspiring sight - and the colossal collapsed volcanic caldera blooms with lush greenery and scattered wildflowers. The vast crater has been taken over by a glowing, picturesque lake, which reflects the blue sky above. A full three miles wide - and with a circumference of eight miles - it’s a vast panorama to take in. The Lagoa de Fogo – or Lake of Fire – is another of the island’s calderas – rise up to see the crumpled scenery encasing a beautiful lake. São Miguel Island’s geothermal activity has practical uses too, and you can harness the powers to unwind any tired muscles after a long day, by sinking into the hot springs of Poca Da Dona.

Silver Shore Privato - Sete Cidades Crater Lakes by Private Van

This exclusive tour is designed to allow you the chance to customize your time ashore and discover the most interesting sites in the comfort and privacy of your own vehicle. You will be promised scenic beauty and contact with one of the oldest villages in São Miguel where the old traditional way of living in the Azorean villages is still kept alive.


Sete Cidades

The entire region of Sete Cidades is dominated by the impressive Caldeira, with its almost 7.5 mile (12 km) diameter; this is the most spectacular volcanic view in the Azores. The Azores are actually some of the tallest mountains on the planet, measured from their base at the bottom of the ocean to their peaks, which thrust high above the surface of the Atlantic. Because these once-uninhabited and remote islands were settled sporadically over a span of two centuries, their culture, dialect, cuisine and traditions vary considerably. King Charles I of Portugal contemplated this impressive panorama in 1901, discovering there lays two volcanic lakes, the Green and the Blue Lake, separated by a narrow bridge.


Crater Lakes

Together the Green and Blue lakes have an area of 482 hectares (2 miles), and they are 19 metres (62 feet) deep at their greatest depth. On the shores of the Blue Lake is the village of Sete Cidades, enigmatic as its own name (Seven Cities) and surrounded by the dark forest covered walls of the Caldeira. Have the opportunity to see the lakes not only from the highest point but also to admire up close.


Santiago Lake

On the way back to Ponta Delgada you will also have the opportunity to see Santiago Lake. The Santiago Lake is situated in the Devassa Mountain, nearby the amazing Sete Cidades Lake, on the wonderful São Miguel Island, on the Azores Archipelago. In a place of great natural beauty, the lake amazes for its surrounding of greenish mountain slopes filled with natural richness and different species of flora and fauna, proud of the lake waters in dark green tones.

The Santiago Lagoon occupies a volcanic crater, quite visible in the Lagoa do Canário viewpoint, this offers a panorama of great beauty, such as the pure image of the greenish Azores Archipelago.


Pineapple Plantation

One of the more unusual sightseeing destinations on São Miguel is the well-known Pineapple Plantation, located just outside of Ponta Delgada. You can see the greenhouses (the Azores are not warm enough to cultivate the fruit outdoors), and take a tour of the plantation and learn of the growing stages and cultivation.


Your private vehicle then returns you to the pier and your ship after your day of discovery.

Swimming with Dolphins in the Ocean

Experience a thrilling dolphin encounter in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.


Enjoy the ultimate dolphin experience - swimming with wild dolphins in their natural habitat.


The crystal-clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean that embrace the Azores are teeming with bottlenose, common, and Atlantic spotted dolphins. Where better to swim with these playful marine mammals than in their own habitat?


Embarking on a RIB with an experienced skipper and a marine biologist, you'll set out into the ocean in search of these elegant creatures. En route, your expert guides will inform you of the species you are likely to encounter and offer advice on how best to interact with the dolphins, to get the most out of your experience.
