Sea Kayaking 2 – Paraty Explorer – Adventure & Active Travel in Brazil

“a sea kayaker’s dream” – National Geographic Traveler selects Paraty’s Costa Verde for 50 Tours of a Lifetime!

It’s easy to see why Brazil is fast becoming one of the most popular international sea kayaking destinations.
Renowned the world over for its vibrant Beach Culture and with the longest coastline in South America, Brazil is undoubtedly a paddler’s paradise.

From its base just south of Rio de Janeiro on the country’s most beautiful stretch of coastline, the Costa Verde (Green Coast), Paraty Explorer is pioneering day and multi-day guided sea kayaking tours in Brazil.  


With deserted sandy beaches, tropical islands, Rainforest covered hills and traditional Caiçara fishing villages the Costa Verde has all the ingredients for an amazing sea kayaking experience!

What people say about our paddling trips…

Lauren USA
“I was expecting simply a nice kayaking trip, but getting a brief tour of Paraty, exploring the mangroves, learning about the ecology of the estuary, visiting the caiçara villages and learning about their history and culture, hiking through the mata atlântica up to the peak, and wow, the *food*, by candlelight even, all made for an extraordinary experience that went above and beyond anything I expected. It was really nice to get away from touristy Paraty and see something unique. Rodrigo was an excellent guide and I enjoyed his company. thanks again to both of you!”
