📃 Sea Kayak Rental description and information

Sea Kayak Rental with Paraty Explorer, leading Outfitter in Brazil with over 10 years experience.

Are you a paddler? Blown away by the stunning images of the Costa Verde coastline? Imagining yourself paddling up to a deserted sandy beach? Can you feel the first ice cold beer of the day slipping down having paddled 10km or 15km in the morning?

Then read on…

As far as we are aware Paraty Explorer is the only Outfitter in Brazil that rents out single and double sea kayaks for self-guided day and multi-day trips. To create and run your own kayak expedition in Brazil is an exciting prospect. However, there is significant risk involved. For your safety and our peace of mind, we hold high prerequisites and screen paddlers carefully before renting kayaks. There is no rescue service in the Paraty/ Costa Verde (Green Coast) area. Before renting we consider the following factors:

  • Certification or references
  • Experience and comfort in kayaks with rudders in wind, swell & surf
  • Multi-day kayak experience (either camping or lodge-based as appropriate)
  • A leader/decision maker/responsible person for navigation and safety
  • Basic Portuguese (or Spanish) language ability

We consider the experience of the paddlers in your group, the experience of the group leader (the person responsible for the expedition) and the level of difficulty of the itinerary. If you have little or no sea kayaking experience we recommend a guided multiday trip.

What is the ideal itinerary for my group?

We offer all the support you need to set up the right itinerary for your group, including stopping options (beaches, islands, waterfalls, hiking), paddling distance options per day, where to stay (campsites, guest houses, rental cottages and houses), where to eat, community-based activities, etc

Initially, we recommend you study the Paraty Explorer 02, 03 and 05 day Guided Multiday trips, and build your itinerary on top of them.

Paraty: getting there

What our customers say:

¨A true heaven for sea kayakers!¨
Michael responded very quickly to our emails and suggested an amazing route. Following some rigorous questioning, which made perfect sense; Michael agreed to rent us a wonderful sleek double. He also suggested places to camp and made the reservations for us. We packed our clothing, camping gear, food & drinking water for five days and off we went. Michael escorted us for the first couple of hours, again just to make sure that we were comfortable in the kayak, and that he could see for himself that we were experienced competent kayakers. After all were setting off for an adventure in the Atlantic Ocean!

¨Wonderful outfitter!
Everything was better than expected to the point that we are hoping to come back next year. The area is gorgeous and Paraty Explorer makes it accessible and low stress¨
