I did an excellent 4 hour trip from Paraty with Phillipe and Gonzalez, who both speak excellent English. We went to a remote beach on a nearby island and back through a Mangrove. Perfect for those who want to do something more active and get away from the crowds on bigger boat tours. Bring suncream and a sunhat!

A fabulous area to discover : kayak in the mangrove, trek in the jungle to go to the peak (which can be hard when it's hot - 460m in 1h30). In addition, an amazing hostel : "refugio de Saco de Mamagua" is incredible !

After reading the excellent feedback here, we booked a hike and a kayak excursion with Paulo. We were not disappointed. Two great days, where we also learned a lot about the way of living of the locals. Paulo is a biologist and he cares deeply about promoting sustainable living in the area, supporting local communities and the ecosystem. We took... More

I decided to row a kayak with my girlfriend with Interação Ambiental. We wanted to add some exercise on our vacation and we certainly did! The trip was great and Paulo (the guide) explained to us how to row correctly and showed some great beaches on the bay. If you don't speak Portuguese, don't worry, Paulo speaks English and French...

We arranged a 3 days tour with Interacao Ambiental with our 9-year old daughter. A very beautiful surpirse was to discover the accomodation during our stay in Saco do Mamangua: the Refugio Mamanguà, managed by Interacao Ambiental, is located by a cristalline sea, surrounded by colourful flowers and a luxuriant jungle. The nice small houses are just few steps from... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our Kayak trip with Paulo in Paraty. The view of the city and islands in the bay was beautiful & we're so happy we were able to experience Paraty from the water. There were just two of us on the tour, so Paulo asked us what we were interested in seeing and allowed us... More

We had a great 5 hours sea kayaking with Paulo. We kayaked to an island and did some snorkelling and then back via the mangroves, where we saw wildlife. Paulo is extremely professional and the equipment is good. He tailors the trip to the interests and skills of the group. He also took a camera and sent us some great... More

We were delighted to spend the day kayaking in Paraty Bay with Paulo. He has good single and tandem kayaks, and he gave good instructions to new kayakers. He's a great teacher, and is full of great information, delivered in perfect English, and always with a smile on his face. The waters of the Bay were calm and inviting. We're... More

I did not go to Mamangua, but used the same outfitter (Interação Ambiental) for a kayak trip in Paraty. Paulo, our guide is a biologist very tunned up to our enjoyment. Great trip to get out of the crowds. Mamanguá defenitly on the radar for next time.

These guys are cool and will certainly provide you very equipments and friendly attention, but that is a good program just if you want to work out surrounded by a beautiful landscape. Because the schooner or the boat trip will show you much more places and things.
