Great if you want to experience sailing in Rio
, Jan 2022
Nice boat, very friendly and professional crew. They did their best and it was a really nice tour despite the bad weather. We definitely recommend it and hope to do it again on a sunny day

Thank you for your review! We often say that a bad day sailing is better than a good day indoors! We are happy you will consider coming back on a sunny day!! All the best!
Great views of Guanabara Bay
, Dec 2021
They guys were great. Two man operation that really made us feel special. We toured a good chunk of Guanabara Bay. They filled in historical facts of the areas we were looking at and fluidly went from English to Portuguese. The only down side was we actually “sailed” very little, most was motorized. But still a great experience. Thanks for making us feel at home.

Thank you for your review. Just for the record and future participants, although we always privilege sailing over motoring (in fact we hate motoring), we must abide by mother nature´s will whenever she determines the wind should be down!

The tour guides were amazing! And the drinks were delicious. When we come back we will definitely be sailing with them again.
Excellent Sunset Cruise - Will go again
, Sep 2021
Danny and crew did a wonderful job showing us around the bay in Rio. The views were excellent. The caipirinhas were better than in most restaurants. The guys shared about the history of Rio, showing us relevant landmarks. They played some really good music that set the tone. I’d highly recommend this tour and I plan to go again!
Great Tour

This was truly one of the highlights of our vacation in Rio. We sailed around important landmarks and viewed iconic architecture of Oscar Neimeyer. They provided beverages as well as snacks which were delicious. We would recommend it for sure

Gorgeous sightseeing, listening to very good Brazilian music while enjoying a delicious caipirinha. We love it so much!! We give a 6 stars!!

This was our first sailing experience after many trips to Rio and could not recommend more! It was a highlight of our trip to see the incredible city and natural wonders from a new angle. Daniel is an incredible host & guide with a wealth of knowledge, and awesome drinks & snacks. Captain Cassio smoothly navigated and allowed us to feel safe and comfortable so we could relax and enjoy the incredible scenery & experience. Thank you both for sharing your boat with us for a few hours - we will be back!!! 🌅
Great excursion!
