Michael at Paraty Explorer was so helpful from the moment I made contact with him. I booked in for a morning of sea kayaking. The group was small, the attention and support from the guide, Gabriel was excellent. He was incredibly friendly and really patient with the less confident members of the group. Gabriel's English and knowledge of the area... More

This was one of the best parts of our entire holiday. We booked the morning kayaking session and it was great! We were greeted by Michael on the beach who is warm, welcoming and friendly. He clearly explained how to use the kayak and offered us some handy tips. We stopped off at beautiful beaches - the scenery was incredible.... More

Parati is a great place to explore and has a lot to offer. Apart from hiking through the lush tropical forest to remote beaches we really enjoyed our day of sea kayaking. The warm waters of the Atlantic make this an enjoyable activity even for those with little or no previous sea kayaking experience and we found the folks of... More

I always wanted to try Standup Paddleboarding, and had a great lesson with Michael at Paraty Explorer. It was easy to make the arrangements, the water in the bay at Jabaquera is calm and tranquil - perfect for learning SUP. Michael is a patient teacher and the class is good value. A shame I'd booked to leave Paraty or I... More

The Nature is simply amazing! First we were kayaking through the mangrove forest and it was amazing to see pure nature so close. After that, we visited few beaches, no people there. Guide is really nice, kayaking is easy! I highly recommend!

We did a great hiking trip to a small fishing village and slept there 2 nights. Everything was perfectly organized and the wonderful nature made this an unforgettable trip. Thanks Michael!

Michael was wonderful in helping us set up a self-guided trip. We rented the tandem kayak through him. He also help us plan the route and obtain reservations at Happy Hammock Hostel and a campground. He provided maps and lots of supporting information for our trip. We also stayed before and after our trip in one of the rooms at... More

As a solo (female) traveler I was really happy to join Paraty Explorer for some company and to make sure not to get lost or in trouble. I joined the Mamangua Sugarloaf peak hike and a half day of kayaking. Michael and Rodrigo were great company, took good care of me and it was really nice to be able to... More
