Schooner Boat Trip in Rio de Janeiro
Our schooner trip in Rio takes you around the Guanabara bay area, to see the most interesting spots. It is the second largest bay in Brazil, measuring 31 kilometers long and 28 kilometers wide. The name Guanabara comes from the Tupi language and means sea bay. There are over 130 islands on the bay, which is crossed by the Rio- Niterói bridge (13 kilometers long). A regular ferryboat line connects Rio to Niterói city. The land escape around the bay is awesome and highlights include Sugar Loaf mountain, the beaches of Niterói, the Boa Viagem island and the amazing view of Rio once we are in Niterói.

We are an adventure tour operator based in Rio de Janeiro, that has been around since 2001, managed by a team of “locals” who know exactly what travelers and outdoor enthusiasts are looking for, when coming to Rio. We are focused in outdoor activities, adventure sports and ecotourism, but we also provide the regular and most common tours, to places such as Sugar Loaf, Corcovado and other tour spots.It is just a matter of choice. You may choose to go up to Sugar Loaf by cable car, no problem in that, we will surely take you up there. But we will be very pleased if you decide to get up there by walking, or even rock climbing. Our philosophy – which really defines us for what we are as a company and who we are as employees – is to offer you a different approach, a particular way to see our city, through our eyes. Once we have accomplished that, we will consider our mission done.
