Cruise over Sepetiba Bay on a day trip from Rio de Janeiro and spend the afternoon on a secluded tropical island. Travel by coach along a stunning coastline to the small town of Itacuruça, where you’ll board a traditional schooner for a 2-hour cruise that explores Sepetiba Bay’s wildlife-filled waters. Dive into swimming spots only accessible by boat and keep an eye out for commonly seen dolphins. Enjoy a buffet lunch and relax on the sandy beaches of Ilha de Jaguanum before your return to Rio via Itacuruça.
Upon hotel pickup in Rio de Janeiro, board your comfortable coach and relax on the 1.5-hour coastal drive to Itacuruça. You’ll travel along the scenic Costa Verde (Green Coast) to the small town, which is bordered by mountains draped in lush green vegetation that gives the coastline its name.

Hop aboard a traditional Brazilian schooner and sail over the shimmering waters of Sepetiba Bay toward Ilha de Jaguanum, the largest of the tropical islands located in the pristine bay. Keep an eye out for abundant marine life such as commonly spotted dolphins, giant kingfishers, parrots, sea turtles and stingrays as you sail.

Enjoy a morning snack with a selection of mouthwatering tropical fruits and relax with a drink from the onboard bar (own expense). Your crew makes a stop for a delightful dip in a secluded spot before continuing on to the tropical isle of Ilha de Jaguanum. Here, a buffet lunch is served, including meat, chicken, fish, black beans, rice, and a variety of salads and desserts. 

After lunch, venture along Araçá beach or soak up the sun on shore before boarding the schooner back to Itacuruça. Upon arrival in Rio, your guide drives you along the city’s resident neighborhoods and exciting nightlife hubs en route to your hotel.

While the trip from hotel to boat takes 3 hours (and another 3 back), the 5 hours boat trip was very good.

Got a chance to see dolphins, meet cool new people, eat great food and swim near the islands. Good times!
