Wonderful sailing in Rio!

This is the most relaxing way to see beautiful Rio De Janeiro. We loved the easy going attitude of the captain and his son! Enjoyed the company of every one on board. The small group size allowed great conversation with people from many different places in the world. This tour was definitely one of great delights while we were in Rio! Would recommend taking this tour to everyone! the

Awesome trip!

Awesome tour, great boat and great service! Don't miss it, it certainly beats any other boat trip around Rio in terms of service. Cassio is the best, very knowledgeable of the local history, very attentive, funny, easy to communicate with, perfect english. It was probably one of the best and most relaxing experiences we had in Rio.

it’s like going out to sail with friends -amazing experience

What a fun experience, it starts like sailing with complete strangers and ends like you knew everyone a long time ago. Captain and son makes for great stories, camaderie and a relaxed yet interactive (we got to sit at the wheel!) and fun experience. Highly recommended if you want to see Rio from the water, if you like sailing or if you just like to hang out with friendly people and listen to their stories.
