Marco and Isabella are expert sailors with a beautiful yacht. They are warm and welcoming, and both are clearly passionate about sailing and life on the water. While we were in Rio, the seas were unusually rough, so while we were unable to complete the original agenda, we were still able to make a nice tour of the calmer waters in the bay. We spent a nice day with friends and family, talking, sharing stories.

Marco and Isabel are first class. Communication is amazing and Marco worked with me to get on the water when convenience and weather would best fit. I did this experience solo and hope to return with my sisters/girlfriends/partner. And had amazing recommendations for restaurants. One I’m sitting at right now. Very much appreciate the friendliness and flexibility of the host. x

I had an outstanding day with Marco any d Isabel on the sea! The weather was perfect, the skyline thrilling, the nature amazing... but most importantly, it has been a real pleasure to sail with Marco and Isabel who truly shared their passion for sailing with me. Their boat is stunning, both are extremely experienced (Marco also did sail races before) and they are very care-taking and customer-orientated. We had lovely chats and a great time together - I really can encourage everybody interested to book their trip!
