Kayak Tours in Paraty

With the Costa Verde considered by many Brazilian paddlers as the best sea kayaking in Brazil, kayaking tours in Paraty are a great way to explore the region. This sea kayaking paradise has something for everyone, no matter the level of experience – from sheltered flat waters for beginners to the Juatinga Point where the open sea demands respect from even the most experienced paddlers. All along the coast you can count on beautiful deserted sandy beaches, tropical islands, magical mangroves and lush Atlantic Forest on the surrounding hillsides.

Beyong the stunning natural beauty paddling the water trails of Paraty is also a journey into local history. Long before the Portuguese colonisers came indigenous people roamed these coastlines in their canoes. To this day the local Caiçara people have a rich culture of dugout canoeing as part of daily life. Curious? Check out Paraty Water Trails on the blog.
