“Disappointing boat trip”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

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 average. The main downside is that nothing is said about the islands, the bay and the wildlife around. It's not an educational experience. Besides, they drop you off in the town of Sao Francisco do Sul and you're on your own. No maps are provided, no guidance at all.

“Boat ride”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

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

“Indulge yourself”
Reviewed January 13, 2012

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 of all ages.
