What you'll do

Are you seeking more than just an ordinary boat tour experience? Looking for that unique feeling of being silently pushed by the wind and gliding over the waters through the magic of sailing? You are then in the right place!

WE DO SAIL! And we would like to make this experience unforgettable for you.

Come explore our favorite routes under sail and appreciate Rio from a different angle!

We will sail from the foothill of Sugar Loaf to many other destinations. Gaze at Corcovado hill, its statue of Christ The Redeemer, as well as many other landmarks, as we progress.

If you are interested, sit next to the skipper and he will teach you some sailing tricks. Or, just sit back, grab a drink and some snacks while we sail along Botafogo and Flamengo beaches, Santa Teresa, Centro, the fortresses of Santa Cruz, and São João, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and Boa Viagem island, to mention a few.

We may plan a stop for swimming. But remember, it will depend on sea conditions and water quality. Sailing in the open ocean is possible only when conditions permit. The safety and comfort of all are our top priorities!
Other things to note
Bring swimming gear, towel and sunscreen.
Since this experience depends on weather conditions, it could be cancelled at any moment. We will keep you posted!
We leave on time! 10 min maximum tolerance!

Born and raised in Rio, I grew up splitting my time between my true passion for sailing and corporate jobs! In '08, I left banking to become a full-time sailor. As the owner of 39.5-foot Kamehameha, I have sailed thousands of miles along the Brazilian coastline.

SAILING BEFORE THE WIND was the 1st sailing experience approved by AIRBNB upon its arrival in Brazil in '17.

Now, I want you to be part of my story and, who knows, you'll also fall for sailing. But I'll be happy if you just lay back, contemplate and have fun during this unique boat tour!
I want this sailing experience to be life-changing for you! A truly unforgettable sailboat tour!

Daniel, my son, and co-host is a duly licensed sailor and accumulates substantial sailing mileage from his Atlantic crossings to the Caribbean and Europe.

Tô start, Cassio did sort of “throw a quick one” at us and on the day of the trip tell us his son Daniel would be guiding the tour and not him. That being said, Daniel was incredible. Polite and a good sailor, experienced, and confident. Knew enough English to make me feel comfortable, although I would have been ok with Portuguese as it is the native tongue in Rio. Marcella was a nice first mate and definitely respectful and had her eye out for everyone’s safety. My girlfriend and I had a really nice time and the views were incredible. It is probably the best way to see the city. There is nothing else like a sailing trip. I also thought the food was really tasty and presented well. Beers were cold, all in all an awesome experience. Very grateful and would highly recommend to anyone, foreigner or not.

Excelente passeio! Super recomendo o time do Cássio e sua família para navegar. O veleiro tem espaço suficiente para acomodar umas 10 pessoas. A cerveja estava gelada, e os aperitivos eram uma delícia. A playlist eu salvei no meu Spotify de tão bacana. Os lugares são maravilhosos. Ver o Rio de Janeiro pelo mar é algo que muda toda a experiência de viagem. A Marcela que estava ajudando é maravilhosa, super querida e faz todos se sentirem muito a vontade. Explica sobre pontos turísticos e ainda me deu uma mini aula de Vela. Eu realmente tive uma maravilhosa expedição!

This is a nice sunset boat ride with Marissa and Cassio. She explained everything in English and it was a beautiful view of the rocky mountainous coast. I recommend people to do this if they would like a relaxing experience during the Brazilian sunset.

Foi uma experiência incrível, com direito ao por do sol em alto mar! Daniel e Marcela foram ótimos na recepção, nas histórias sobre os lugares por onde passávamos e na companhia super agradável, vale super a pena!

A day to remember and breath-taking views of Rio de Janeiro from the ocean !!! I Highly recommend this tour for anyone out there looking for a unique experience in Rio de Janeiro. Since the moment we met Cassio and his son it was just like being with 2 old friends, Cassio is a very calm and knowledgeable guy who has travelled all over the world and is still extremely passionate about his beautiful city which made the tour even more enjoyable. This was a once in a lifetime experience that I certainly could not have lived on my own. The sunset view from the ocean was by far the prettiest one I have seen. Thank you guys.
