PictureKayaking in Paraty, Brazil

Paddle the warm, protected waters of the bay of Paraty on this guided kayak tour to tropical islands and deserted sandy beaches. The tour finishes with an unforgettable paddle through the mangrove, which is not accessible by boat.

Your experienced English speaking guide will give paddling and safety instruction for double sea kayaks before you set out on the flat waters of the bay. The kayaks are specifically designed to go further with less effort! No previous kayaking experience is necessary for this tour. You will paddle past islands and stop at beaches for swimming, snorkeling, refreshments and relaxation.

On the return you paddle through the mangrove full of bright red crabs, providing the tide is high enough.

This is an active, fun tour for people who want to explore the bay of Paraty and escape the boat-tripping crowds.
