Buzios' beaches, nestled between peaks, are mostly small and isolated, with calm, clean waters. Its breathtaking views are a sight not to be missed! Of course, the climate in Buzios is a testament to "Mother Nature" and blessed with a wonderful year-round summer.
Board a Bahian style saveiro (the name given to this typical boat that looks like a schooner), for a leisurely cruise in the green waters of Buzios. The cruise time is approximately 2.5 hours, and will include stops for swimming, snorkeling and beachcombing.
The tour will pass by famous beaches and islands such as; Ossos, Azeda, Azedinha, João Fernandes, João Fernandinho, Ilha Branca, Tartaruga, Virgem, Amores, Canto, Ilha do Caboclo e Armação. During the cruise, a stop will be made at Ilha Feia and Praia da Tartaruga for swimming and snorkeling.
The schooner is equipped with restroom facilities, and some refreshments will be available - mineral water, soft drinks, and of course the traditional Brazilian Caipirinha drink.
Please note: Walking is mainly optional on this tour and can be done during the stop for snorkeling. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and may not be suitable for those with mobility concerns. Guests should be able to maneuver entering and exiting the vessel. The vessel offers bench-like seating. To reach the beach, guests must swim from the schooner as it anchors off-shore. Beachwear worn under a cover-up; sun cap; sunglasses; sunscreen; and flat comfortable walking shoes or aqua socks with a non-slip sole are recommended. There is a limited amount of snorkeling equipment onboard, and guests may wish to bring their own. Those who participate in any water activities do so at their own risk and responsibility.
