My girlfriend and I did the basic sailing course. Denilson is a very patient teacher who provides clear explanations and comprehensive learning material. The sailboat was clean and in excellent conditions. Learning, eating and sleeping on the boat was a great introduction to the art of sailing. We have already booked our return for the intermediate course.

I booked a sailboat for three days to sail from Paraty to Ilha Grande with 6 friends. When entering the boat we met sailor Ari. Ari is an 80-year old sailor with the spirit, humor and energy of a 30-year old. He is really amazing. Everything we asked him, he replied with "it's possible, no problem". He brought us to desolated beaches, tranquil bays and a more touristy party beach to dance the night away. It was a sail trip of a life time. The service from Ana and Vele & Aventura is also perfect. She always communicates immediately and clear almost every part of the day. She is really willing to help you with everything. I can't find anything to improve, I would really recommend this company and I would definitely book again.

Vela & Aventura was perfect in planning and arranging our trip on a boat to Ilha Grande. My son and I visited the Ilha Grande region on a sailboat,for three days. It was extremely safe, given the capitain's experience and the perfect boat. The crew is great. they know everything about the region and spear no efforts to make of it the best experience possible.

It was the second time with Vela & Aventura. I took the intermediate course. We sail around Paraty and we had a lot of fun. I had the opportunity to cook, actually make an barbecue. I do recommend an weekend with them. Thanks Denilson and Ana.

I took this course with my wife. It was very informative how to sail, but also very fun. The weather was perfect! Denilson was very kind with us all the time. In the end, we got a very good surprise to see dolphins swimming besides our boat.
