Orlando Duque knows the Azores inside and out from his active time as a Cliff Diving Superstar. Let him show you the most spectacular places in the archipelago, above and below sea level. While snorkeling, you can say hello to the starfish, surf at high speed along the northern beach, explore the inland by mountain bike and then stroll comfortably through the city of Ponta Delgada.
The Colombian Orlando Duque is the icon of Cliff Diving: in 2013 he became the first world champion in high diving in Barcelona, and he won the World Series nine times. In 2000, he managed the "Jump of all Jumps" in Hawaii — he got the highest grade of 10 from all judges.
If you like, you can also experience what makes flying off the rock so special at a cliff-diving class. And after that you can simply marvel at what the professionals are capable of nowadays: at the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series on the "Islet of Vila Franca do Campo". Sporty top performances in front of a dreamlike scenery.
We will get to know the ocean surrounding the islands in all its facets. If we are lucky, we'll even encounter whales!
