Discover and explore the one and only tropical fiord in the world

You will be riding the calm waters of Paraty bay onboard Palombeta speedboat, a brand new confortable speedboat that will get you where you want in no time. The boat will take 4 passengers plus captain.

Onboard you have a ice chest with ice for your drinks, as courtesy I offer you bottled water and tropical fruits.

We are going to visit the one and only tropical fiord in the world, known as Saco do Mamanguá. Here the sea makes an arm that goes 8 kilometers in depth and 2 kilometers wide between two chains of mountains. This place is home to a lot of marine life reproduction and here you will often find big sea stars, calm waters and wonderful beaches, plus scenic views of the mountains surrounding you wherever you are.

We will also get to visit the same mansion where the twilight movie was recorded in Brazil.

Then there's the optional stop for lunch at a local fisherman's Restaurante, where you get to eat amazing local fresh fish and seafood.


We will depart from the Pereque-Açu river in Paraty, making stops at the following spots:

- Praia do Jurumirim
- Ilha da Pescaria
- Saco da Velha
- Praia do Engenho
- Praia das Margaridas,
