Quite unspoilt island in the bay, choose a day with little wind, little waves, and in the afternoon, so you may enjoy the sunset on your way back

The guides say the boat trips are cancelled on a wet day. Well the boat set off in spite of heavy ominous clouds and strong wind. The seas were rough and the rain poured down as we were leaving the beach at Frades Island. It was the only time I felt cold during a 4 week trip, but by the time we got to the beach at the next destination the sun had come out again. We got back to the port in Salvador towards 18:00

The Frades Island is 2 hrs. away from Salvador. I took boat excursion throu Bahia Premium tours. 70 Reais per person. The boat excursion included hotel pick-up and drop-off. All day trip which included Frades Island and Itaparica Island. Onboard a second party boat, you get free fruit and a Samba band. Drinks are extra, Beer is 4 Reais and Caipirinhas are 6 Reais. They also offer water and soft drinks for a fee. At Itaparica you can have lunch for 28 Reais per person open buffet, desert and coffee included.
