    1. Salvador: Dos Frades & Itaparica Islands Full-Day Boat Tour

    Discover the largest bay in Brazil at Baía de Todos os Santos, known by the indigenous Kirimurê as Tupinambás.

Take in the magnificent views of Salvador and listen to samba music as you sip refreshing drinks, such as local caipirinhas, purchased on board.  Disembark at one of the 56 islands in the bay, such as pretty Ilha dos Frades, where the beaches, mountains, and native trees will take your breath away. Sample local snacks and drinks, and then head for the island of Itaparica to admire the historic architecture and learn about the religious groups of African origin. Break for lunch (not included) at a restaurant that specializes in the local cuisine, and spend the afternoon enjoying the beauty of the area before returning to Salvador.

Nice trip, very friendly boat staff, the guide a bit scattered, recommended but could be improved.

Fantastic tour! You must try their cocktails served on the boat
