Barra da Tijuca is known as the “new Rio”, and has many attractions and lots to do. Here we will get onboard on a cozy boat, with room of up to 13 ppl and has cover from the sun, but also much uncovered space for the sun lover.

First we will get to know some of the inland islands, such as Ilha da Gigóia and Ilha dos Pescadores and more, where we will be able to see how people live on these islands, know some wild live around and taste some tasty Brazilian snacks ( included ). After, we will enter into the the famous “Quebra Mar” ( where the sea breaks ), this is the channel that leads out to the sea and with a small cozy beach frequented by locals. We will proceed ( when/if wind conditions allow ) to go out on the sea, specifically to the Tijuca Islands, where we will stop for swimming, snorkeling, or SUP.

Tavi is knowledgeable, personable, and made our first day (and first time; 7 of us!) in Rio an unforgettable experience!

I would not hesitate to book a tour with him next time I’m in Rio. If you’re looking for someone who knows and loves the city and can educate you while still having fun, Tavi is your guy!
