All reviews sea kayaking kayak tour these guys fantastic morning eco farm dry bags an english speaking guide clams different perspective highly recommend this trip fishing village beautiful scenery perfect combination day trip small group ponta negra took pictures
Very well and professional organized trips,
great hiking adventure to a hidden waterfall,
deep insights to history and nature of Paraty,
all provided by Chicco and Michael with a friendly and nice sense of British humor.
With 3 young kids in tow, kayaking & hiking sadly weren't an option for us, but Michael came up with the best solution of a day's boat trip and a half-day trip to some local waterfalls & cachaca distillery. Both were very special memorable days,...More
Had a great paddle with these guys. Was nice and chilled with a very cool little section through the mangrove forests. A highlight was also the little beach we stopped at for an hour for a swim and snorkel.
What can I say? So much fun!!!!!! We highly recommend taking up Michael as your tour guide for a spectacular kayak ride. He also organized a boat trip with SUPS for the next day that was equally as amazing.
We loved the Gold Trail day-tour with Paraty Explorer. The history and cachaca tasting made our time in Paraty feel unique, and this was one of our favorite experiences. Bring your swimsuit for the water slide - it's so fun!
Had a great morning paddling around the bay of Paraty with Michael and three other people. Michael was very helpful and gave good instructions and information about the places we saw. We swam at a beautiful beach and paddled through a mangrove.
I booked a 3-day kayak trip with Paraty Explorer through a travel company called muchbetteradventures. The experience far exceeded my expectations. It was extremely well organised, the guide was very knowledgeable and the activities were super varied. We kayaked around the various islands, had picnics...More

We booked a kayak tour with Paraty Explorer. Contacted them by whatsapp late in the evening and they answered immediately that we could do the tour the day after. Great service! As we were the only people on the tour, we actually got a private...More

Hi Matti, great to hear you enjoyed the kayaking.
And your timing with the weather was perfect. Beautiful sunny day! (not like today, haha).
Enjoy the rest of your trip in Brazil. Michael

technically it's possible to do a day trip in paraty from rio but it's a lot of time on the road. 1 way drive is about 4 1/2 hours. Best to come and spend a couple of nights in paraty and do a couple of day trips... More
