📃 Kayak Camping Expedition description and information
On this 05-day Kayak Camping Expedition, we paddle from Paraty to Camburi in the neighbouring municipality of Ubatuba. A challenging expedition of approximately 100km, this expedition is not suitable for beginners. This trip is for paddlers with experience of open water conditions, trained in assisted rescue and used to paddling in the Surf Zone.
Leaving Pontal Beach in Paraty we paddle the protected waters of the bay of Paraty to the famous Saco do Mamanguá, where we spend 02 nights. On these days we have time to review and practice rescue techniques before venturing out into rougher seas. On the third day, following the coast of the Juatinga peninsula, we arrive at Pouso de Cajaiba village. From this point, providing Mother Nature allows us, we will pass the Juatinga point and head into open sea. If everything goes well, we arrive in Ponta Negra village or Sono beach at the end of the day. In the final stretch, we paddle to Camburi Beach where the expedition finishes.
In one of his interviews, the Brazilian adventurer and transatlantic rower, Amyr Klink has commented:
“I think Joatinga is more dangerous than the Cape Horn itself”.
It may be an exaggeration, but certainly Ponta da Joatinga (or Juatinga) needs to be approached with respect, local knowledge and rigorous planning.
On this roots camping expedition we will spend the nights in tents (or sleeping in hammocks!) on the beautiful beaches of the region. Each day we start very early, preferably at sunrise, to be able to guarantee the day’s mileage in the best possible sea conditions. In the evening, we enjoy the excellent Caiçara cuisine – seafood, rice, beans, manioc flour and salad – while going over the next day’s paddling plans.
