Peter Café Sport

“If you sail to Horta and do not visit ‘Peter’s’, you have not actually seen Horta.”

This is – especially among yachtsmen – a common expression, repeated over and over again. It is a phrase that loyally expresses the reality that has been built around this cafe-bar – which from an early point has gained a remarkable worldwide projection.
The privileged geographic position that the city of Horta occupies, between America and Europe, makes it an obligatory point of passage of the Atlantic navigations. For a hundred years, sailors from all over the world, sheltered by this harbor, have found support in ‘Peter’s’ friendly and welcoming atmosphere of open conviviality and pleasant conversations.

Along with these men, within this small Atlantic Café, are also found common travelers and tourists, who seek the mystique and fame of a special and unique environment, better savored with a gin and tonic.

Museum Peter Cafe Sport

SCRIMSHAW 01

In our museum we count with one of the largest and most beautiful collections of Scrimshaw in the world – the ancient art of engraving illustrations on the ivory of sperm whales’ teeth.

02 PHOTOS

The history of the island by the lenses of those who lived close by. We did the photographic record of some of the most striking episodes of Faial – including the appearance of Neptune on a stormy day.

PAINTINGS 03

Some of the most emblematic practices and events on the island were immortalized by great artists. You have the opportunity to relive the paintings hanging on the walls of our museum.

04 TESTIMONIES

We have carefully kept the words and memories of those who have spoken to us since we opened our house – delivered by close friends or by the national and international press.

In a comfortable, fast and safe boat, experience one of the most magical contacts with true nature: Whale and Dolphin Watching.

To enter the sea of the Azores is to enter the intimacy of a Sanctuary, with over 25 species of cetaceans.
Between a whale chant and the spray of a sperm whale, between playful dolphins and the stroll of pilot whales, the dream fades and paradise appears.
