What you'll do
We will meet at my house at the Barra Canal, in Barra da Tijuca, Rio! From here, we will get straight on the boat in my backyard and head to the Tijuca Islands in front of Barra da Tijuca beach. You will be amazed at how quickly the big city changes to beautiful nature! The cliffs drop straight into the sea, where the water is beautiful and sea life is everywhere! As we head into the ocean toward the islands, we will see wildlife such as sea turtles, sea birds and amazing species of fish. We will cruise by boat around the islands and you will have the option to go in the water to swim and snorkel with the turtles and many different types of fish or just watch turtles and birds from the boat. For the more adventures ones, we can do a little tour walking in the Alfavaca Island where is possible to see some baby sea birds (most of the year) and jump from rocks to the water. After the 2 1/2 hour tour in the Tijuca Islands we will head back to Barra. This is an experience you will not forget - a way to see the beautiful natural side of

Hi, I'm Gui! Welcome to Rio! I have been lucky to grow up on a beautiful little island on the Barra da Tijuca Canal and since birth have been on the water with my ocean loving parents! Everyday we go spearfishing at the offshore islands, waterski in the Canal, windsurfing in bay and many other ocean activities. Because of this, my passion is the ocean and watersports. I know every inch of the coastline and islands around Rio de Janeiro. Hop aboard and have the best time in Rio!
