Wonderful half-day trip with Michael, who's friendly, knowledgeable, well-organised and takes a very responsible approach while also making the trip great fun. The calm, the seascape and landscape, and the striking experience of the mangroves all made this a highlight of our stay. Thank you!

The kayak tour was one of the highlights of our stay in Paraty. They started the tour by teaching the basics of kayaking and then off to kayak to an island, a beach and through the mangroves. The guide was very friendly and they bring on snacks and water. Highly recommended!

Michael was a great and very friendly guide during our half-day kayaking experience. The locations we visited were beautiful. The weather provided extra excitement. If I have the chance we will definitely repeat the experience.

Great experience in the bay of Paraty: Our guide Gabriel look very well after all of us (explaining how to kayak, accompanying us, serving us water and fresh fruits on all island stops and especially: Answering all our questions about the bay, the country, history, ... He even had some snorkel equipment with him). I was travelling alone, but this... More

Gabriel was very informative throughout the tour and everything was done to a suitable... More

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
