Itinerary

After pick up at the hotels in the South and Downtown areas of the metropolitan region of Rio de Janeiro, the air-conditioned transport will continue along the road for a journey of around 3 hours, with a stop for a snack (not included). Upon arriving in the city of Arraial do Cabo, passengers disembark and walk for 10 minutes until reaching the Pier, where the payment of the entrance fee at the Pier and boarding the schooner will be made.

Now it's time to relax and discover the paradises of the coastal region of Arraial do Cabo. Known for beaches with clear waters and fine white sand, you will see up close important points such as the Gruta Azul, Pedra do Gorila and the Fenda de Nossa Senhora. And you will stop for diving at 03 different points: Forno Beach, where you can dive around the vessel; Farol Island, with the possibility of visiting the local beach; and Pontal do Atalaia Beaches, where it is also possible to go to the beach and take a sun bath and swim.

Forno Beach is one of the main postcards of Arraial do Cabo! The color of the water in the cove and the strip of white sand surrounded by lush vegetation form a backdrop worthy of several photos.

Farol Island is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil. It's hard not to be dazzled by the tone of the water, very similar to the Caribbean, and the almost untouched landscape of the place. This is the only beach in Arraial do Cabo that can only be accessed by boat.

Next to Farol Island, but in the mainland area, are two small beaches known as Prainhas do Pontal do Atalaia. The two unite at low tide and form a portion of sand that leaves tourists in love with the landscape.

After this incredible boat trip along the coast, passengers return to land to enjoy a tasty buffet-style meal. Take the opportunity to delight yourself with various options of the local cuisine and replenish your energy before boarding the transport that will take passengers back to their respective hotels in Rio de Janeiro. Sit back and relax in a comfortable and safe trip, and keep in your memory and in the wonderful photographs the incredible records of this trip in a breathtaking tropical paradise!
