After pick-up from hotels we will take the Rio-Santos road to Itacuruça. There we will board our schooner (locally known as “saveiros”). A tray of tropical fruits will be served on board. A bar is also available on the boat (beverages not included in tour price).

The schooner cruises the Sepetiba Bay, an area rich in natural beauty, where it is normal for passengers to spot dolphins, giant king-fishers, parrots, turtles and stingrays. After stops for a swim we will continue to the island where a delicious lunch buffet will be served for visitors. After lunch, there will still be time to explore the island before returning to Itacuruça.
