Our family of 4 (daughters age 12 and 13) thoroughly enjoyed a half-day of kayaking. The scenery was beautiful and the guides were patient and helpful. We thoroughly recommend this to anyone for a wonderful perspective of the Paraty region.

Went out seakaykaing with these guys, was a pretty cool day. The beauty of Brazil can't be beaten and this is a great way to see it, different from your usual tourist trap boat tours this feels a lot more authentic. Stop at a couple of beaches along the way to rest up, the sort of places you dream you... More

we spent the morning (about 3 hours) kayaking between three beaches. excellent time. very helpful guides, good balance between paddling and stopping times, nice fruit snack at the furthest beach. all in very good atmosphere. i'm now very tempted to go back for one of their multi-day trips which sound amazing!!

Enjoyed a fantastic tour of Paraty Bay with Michael, our friendly and highly knowledgable guide. Fascinating insight into a beautiful place. The half day tour was great value for money, taking in islands, beaches and mangroves. A real highlight of my time in Paraty. A must do!

We easily booked the half day kayak tour via email on Tripadvisor. The prior reviews were spot on! We had a great day. The scenery was spectacular. Our guide was named George and he was helpful and informative. He also gave us ideas for other things to do while in Paraty.

We did two tours with Paraty Explorer: a kayaking trip (half day) and the jungle and beach tour (2 days) and I can say: they are both highly recommended. Both tours were professionally organized and Michael was a magnificent guide: friendly, knowlegdeable about fauna, flora and local customs and very helpful throughout. Both trips provided astonishing views (one from the... More

We had a fantastic time kayaking through the mangroves and across the bay. The views were spectacular and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. He guided us through the mangroves which was something neither of us had done before and definitely an experience we recommend! Fresh fruit, biscuits and water are all provided and are very welcome. We booked by... More

We enquired about this tour the night before arriving in Paraty. Michael was quick to respond and lucky for us had a couple of spaces for the next morning. The group was small (3 other couples) and before getting out onto the water Michael made sure we were all comfortable in the seats and gave us a demo on how... More

Kayaking was the perfect way to see Paraty's gorgeous coastline. The tour was well organized and easily adjusted for varying ability levels. Our guides Michael and Gabriel were knowledgeable and a lot of fun! Our small group size made it easy to stop at a couple of different beaches and islands to swim, snorkel and relax.

I did a canoeing tour with Michael and it was amazing! He showed me the Paraty bay and we did several stops on islands and through the mangrove. Do not forget to bring your swimming suit and sunscreen! He is a very friendly person, very knowledgeable and funny! I think this tour is a must when coming to Paraty
