Yeah, it's a nice idea to go on a bout tour in an archipelago, and you have this pretty good food on board, but I actually thought it would be kinda quieter. There was this guy - who's treated like an asset, really - that tries to cheer people up during the whole trip. There's this scenic route to be... More

Delicioso passeio de barco pelo litoral catarinense, adorei tudo, apesar que o dia que eu fui estava nublado e chuvoso, mas foi divertido, almoço delicioso, tudo muito organizado. Recomendo!

The trip was ok, we passed through a lot of islands in the bay and had a really good Brazilian food in the boat. The entertainment was good to Brazilian people but I think that foreign people won't get the jokes. Furthermore, everything in the boat is in Portuguese, so it is better to go with someone who can translate... More

If you're a party animal, you might like this boat trip. But if you're eager for ocean wildlife and scenery, this is not the place for you. There's a swimming pool and 3 bars on board and it can take hundreds of passengers. There's loud music blaring throughout your voyage. Although lunch is included in the ticket, the food is... More

Very good buffet, fun boat ride on a calm day. Entertainment was not the greatest though. Good experience over all.

The boat departs in the morning from the outskirts of Joinville to cross the beautiful, smooth and impressive Babitonga Bay thru São Francisco do Sul, the third oldest city in Brazil. The cruise is FANTASTIC and the boat infrastructure - swimming pool, bar, solarium and live shows, keep one fully entertained. Good alone, along with friends and family and kids... More
