By boat you observe Nature. By kayak you feel part of it.

Quietly paddling your kayak through the protected waters of the bay of Paraty makes you feel closer to your natural surroundings, enables you to see more wildlife and gives you unique access to the tropical mangrove ecosystem.

During the kayak tour we usually see lots of different bird species: hunting, diving or just taking a ride on the thermal air currents. Jumping fish, turtles and sometimes even dolphins can appear on the route depending on the time of year. Exploring the mangrove we see various types of crabs, from the aggressive, brightly covered red mangrove crab to the more timid swamp ghost crabs.

The exact route will depend on the sea conditions (tides and currents) and the weather (wind, heat and rain). We normally make stops at two different beaches and paddle the mangrove providing the tide is high enough. Check out this Blog post on Wildlife on Kayak Tours in Brazil for more info and photos.
