It’s one of the most enjoyable experiences we had in Rio. The tour provided a unique way to view Rio’s waterfront and skyline. The water was calm; the breeze was nice and the snacks and drinks added more relaxation. The Captain and the crew worked hard to make the tour pleasant to us. I fully recommend.

Very well organized tour and super friendly crew. You sail along the coast and have the opportunity to swim as well. The views at Rio and the surroundings are beautiful. The boat is very comfortable and there was enough space too. We enjoyed it very much and highly recommend it!

Great tour and great experience. The day ended up being cold and a little bit of rain but it didn’t make it any less beautiful. Our tour guides were awesome, they knew many languages which helped both me and my friend have a good time. Thank you for the experience, if I ever come back to Rio I will book again.
