My husband and I have been exploring Paraty for 20+ years and one of the surprising things is that we continue to discovering new places, new tours and having a great time. This kayak tour is a must for the ones who enjoy the sea and a little bit of sports and adventure. Leaving from Jabaquara calm beach, the tour takes you to beautiful islands and a nearby mangrove. The overall scenery is just gorgeous with blues from the open sky and all sorts of greens from the waters and forest, all framed by these endless chain of mountains around. Michael is a terrific and experienced guide, the kayaks are in excellent conditions and we felt safe all the time. We also met nice and interesting people in our group what made the ride very pleasant. Definitely we will go for another tour and bring friends.

We were a group of 5 experienced paddlers and arranged a private full day tour with Michael. Two of our party couldn't make it, but we went ahead with 3 of us. Michael was very gracious about our friends (who were able to join a tour 2 days later). We brought our own lunches and had a wonderful day of paddling. The mangroves were great and being on the water as we toured islands, enjoyed looking at birds and turtles (and even got rained on) was super fun. Michael shared quite a bit of local history with us as well! My husband enjoyed fly fishing from his kayak and even caught some fish! MIchael was always checking in with how we were doing with the pace and our stamina and was willing to adjust the plan as needed. It was a wonderful, relaxing day. What a beautiful bay!

Michael and his team were very helpful organizing this experience for my partner and I. He responded to my emails quickly and we managed to arrange payment online (as getting cash was a bit of a challenge in Paraty at first). Communication was great and we had a great experience. Michael was also very kind to make sure we had everything we needed. The guide was knowledgeable and very nice as well. Altogether, we loved this experience and would really recommend this tour for anyone visiting Paraty!

We had a great day of paddling in the bay with Michael. We did a 4-5 hour tour and visited some beautiful beaches and islands not too far from the city, and passed through a crab filled mangrove on the way back. The kayaks were top quality, and really glided through the water, much better than the standard models available to rent on the beach. The tour was really professional as well but without feeling like a tour. Michael always asked the group what they wanted to do, and gave us many options so it was was real nice and laid back. He also knows a lot about the local fauna and was able to name all the birds and other creatures we encountered along the way. He also had some great stories about Paraty and the local legends. If you want to discover what Harry Potter and a little secluded beach have in common, then Michael is your guy! Definitely a highlight in Paraty.

Paraty is so much more than its tiny historical center, yet few tourists get a chance to explore the town's hidden natural beauties, some of which are only accessible by kayak or canoe. One of them is the mangrove, which is a magical place I would have never even heard of had I not gone on this tour with Paraty Explorer. I'm very happy I did; it was a lovely way to spend a morning/afternoon. We got enough exercise to feel accomplished, but not so much as to become exhausted; we swam in various beautiful beaches; we saw birds and trees and crabs and fishes — all thanks to Michael, who is an amazing and knowledgeable guide. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paraty; it would be a shame for anyone to miss out on this unique experience.

Thank you for the review! We couldnt agree more... the biggest mistake visitors make is to spend only 2 nights in Paraty. You can spend a week here and do something completely different every day! Hope you come back for more!

The ride takes about 4 hours, and it’s organized by Michael and Julian.

The nice oceanic two seats kayaks are easy to manoeuvre and will take you around the bay, the mangrove area and also stops at two isolated beaches.

The whole trip is supervised by Michael and Julian who paddle with you all the way. Tips, historical bits and pieces and some fun stories are also provided by these two.

If you like some action apart from sipping caipirinhas at the beach, call Michael and book your kayak ride. Lots of fun guaranteed

Important: sunblock and water! Recommend 1,5 litres per person

My friend and I had the best time doing this kayak tour, all the equipment was provided and we felt very safe at all times. The tour took us along the coast and through the mangroves (amazing!) and then out to visit the islands. We had plenty of time to chill on the beautiful beaches and then headed back to town. The tour guide was super friendly and took lots of great pics of us that he sent through after. Would def recommend! :)

We had an awesome tour with Michael. The weather was awesome and we went at the right time to go through the mangroves to see some crabs.
He showed us some more secluded beaches where we took a break to swim.
Michael knows a lot about the area and we had a good time with him.

We had a fantastic experience with Michael and his friendly team and could not recommend kayaking with them more. We were taught how to kayak properly, kitted out in safety gear and taken out into the sea. The two beaches in Paraty we stopped at were stunning and we were taken into the mangroves to see crabs. To top it all, we saw a turtle in the sea! It was my favourite thing we did whilst travelling in Brazil! Thank you Michael!

Our excursion on the kayaks was amazing, Julio was the perfect guide explaining things as we went along. We also got to kayak through the mangrove which was the most peaceful and serene moment imaginable. I would 100% recommend this tour and your agency.
