Tropical Islands Full Day Tour

Cruise beautiful Sepetiba Bay on a day trip from Rio de Janeiro. You'll travel from Rio de Janeiro to Itacuruca, where you'll board a schooner to cruise the wildlife-filled waters of Sepetiba Bay. After lunch on a tropical Brazilian island, you'll have time to explore and relax before your return to Rio via the city's residential neighborhoods and exciting night life hubs.

Aboard your schooner (locally known as a saveiro), you'll be served a selection of luscious tropical fruit. A bar is available on the boat, but beverages are not included in the tour price. Your cruise on Sepetiba Bay takes you through an area that's rich in natural beauty, and it is common to spot dolphins, giant kingfishers, parrots, turtles and stingrays.

After stopping for a swim, you will continue to a tropical island where a delicious buffet lunch will be served. After lunch, you will have time to explore the island before returning to Itacuruca.

The car returns to Rio de Janeiro via the charming residential area of Barra and America's Avenue with its modern shopping centers and buildings, Ayrton Senna Avenue and Sernambetiba Avenue, Rio's exciting nightlife center.

Petropolis Full Day Tour

Petropolis town is a nice contrast to the Beach scene of Rio. The air is clean up here and you’ll appreciate the escape from the humidity of Rio.

The town features several museums and residences of the Royal family that as well as a Cathedral and the Imperial museum which all lend insight into what life was like here during the 19th century for the rich and famous.

We highly recommend a visit to the Imperial City where the guest will find Rio´s mountain summer resorts. Dom Pedro II established Petropolis as a summer retreat away from the big city of Rio. It is located 2,400 feet above sea level and it continues to be a popular getaway for Cariocas. The city is located one hour east from Rio.

We will focus on the historic part of the city as well as the majority of monuments, museums and traditional streets such as “ Rua Teresa” where our guests can find a great place for shopping.
