Our island tour got canceled that day so we decided to go sailing instead. We do not regret at all! Rafael and his wife were amazing hosts! They answered our questions and gave us snacks, beer and caipirinhas. We highly recommend this adventure if you are in Rio.

My wife and I truly enjoyed our cruise with Rafael and his Wife. They were great hosts and equally skilled sailors. We really appreciated the opportunity to get our hosts 'stories' while experiencing the thrills of sailing. It was a very personal and intimate experience that we would recommend to future travelers to Rio.

Rafael and his wife were fantastic hosts. They welcomed us with caiprinihas and nibbles. The experience was amazing and we loved sailing around Rio! We were a group of 5 and had one extra person book on which didn’t bother us, the boat is just big enough to relax and enjoy the ocean and neighbouring islands. We went swimming and watched the sunset - pure bliss!

Rafael and his wife were AMAZING! They are so sweet, thoughtful, and personable. Unexpected rain tried to put a damper on our plans but Rafael and his wife were great at adapting to the change in weather and we still were able to enjoy time on the boat and see the sights... It was a wonderful time and I recommend this sailing experience to anyone visiting Rio... A great experience!
