hardly a "schooner" more like an oversized tug boat...at least that's what they put us on.

Yes... it is certainly not the greatest boat neither the coolest yatch! But this tour is a very good value for money.

If the OP's main goal is to experience a nice sailing adventure even more than enjoy the city's landscape from the sea, I recommend renting something.

The boat as depicted on the viator website is the typical tourism schooner or "escuna" as it's known in Brazil.

The escunas are designed for day tripping around bays, islands, and beach islands in Brazil. The sail is never released and the boat is always propelled slowly by motor. You can sit on cushions around the edge of the boat under cover from the sun, or up front near the bow.

The packages are offered as 1/2 or full day and usually include fresh Brazilian fruits and juices. Alcoholic drinks are extra. Lunch at a beach restaurant is often available.

The escunas may stop at various places for swimming and snorkeling. Brazilian music is often played on the boat.

The more popular of such cruises in Rio de Janeiro state are available in Paraty, Angra dos Reis, Ilha Grande, Rio, and Buzios. The tours of Rio Bay are less enjoyable than others due to the size and urban nature of the area.

I highly recommend the escuna tours in Paraty and Ilha Grande, as it's a great way to relax and see beautiful coastlines and isolated island beaches for a reasonable price. It can be a wonderful outing for the day.

Watch your intake of Caiparinhas in the Tropical sun!
