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

We absolutely loved our kayaking trip with Michael and Gabriel. They are incredibly knowledgeable, funny, and supportive guides. As city folk we had limited experience kayaking but they made the four hour adventure easy and so very enjoyable. Wonderful sites, lovely company, very good equipment, and beautiful views of Paraty and the surrounding area. Highly recommend!

We booked a Kayak tour with Rodrigo who was very helpful and fexible as we needed our tour to start earlier. Felipe was our guide, an excellent one. He shared his passion for Kayak and the history of Paraty. We went through the mangrove, stopped at a beach, ate some fruits and he took pictures with using a GoPro all... More

Just back from an extended trek with Michael and his team – Gabriel & Ci. Wow, what an amazing place with some of the best beaches I’ve ever seen and definitely some of the most spectacular views. On leaving Paraty we headed for Ponta Negra, Pouse de Cajaiba and then Mamangua Fjord – Michael’s the perfect host and seems to... More

Michael took us on a day trip hiking to the top of sugarloaf peak - with our four children in tow (aged 10, 8, 6 and 3). This was a great trip, thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family. Michael was very patient with the children and answered all their questions (it really helped that he was a native English speaker).... More

In february 2012 I spent my birthday kayaking with my son, his friend and Paraty Explorer guide and partner Rodrigo. First afternoon we paddled through the mangroves to the left of Jabaquara beach. Next morning we went over to deserted Praia Rosa beach. Both trips were memorable so much so that we decided to return last weekend for the labour... More

We had a great kayaking trip in Paraty! Everything was very well organized and our guides Michael and Rodrigo were really friendly and genuinely interested to make this trip memorable for us. We did 2,5 days kayaking and we climbed up the Pão do Acucar in the Saco do Mamanguá. We stayed two nights in a fisherman's house and had... More

Paraty was our favourite stop in South America and the kayak trip was a real highlight, it was expertly run by Michael who is not only a great bloke but an expert kayaker with great knowledge of the area. We really enjoyed the tour and would recommend for anyone looking at getting out on the water!
